Send messages with this Google app.

You'll find that it's easier than ever to send messages to contacts on your phone or those you have online with Google Allo. You will need to verify your phone number and set your country of residence. There is an option to change the country later on so that you can talk to people in other parts of the world. This app isn't like traditional messaging apps that you have on your phone or computer. It allows you to do a bit more in the way of chatting, playing games and even drawing on the messages that you send.

You can share everything from pictures to videos with Google Allo. Change your status to invisible so that no one sees you online, allowing you to talk to only the people you want to talk to without any interruptions. There will be no traces of the conversation after you stop talking. You can also be involved in a group chat with several people who are online at the same time as you. There is a personal assistant with the app that lets you ask questions, such as information about your destination or what the weather will be like in the area.

Potentially dangerous permissions

  • ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION: Allows an app to access approximate location. Alternatively, you might want ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION.
  • ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION: Allows an app to access precise location. Alternatively, you might want ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION.
  • CAMERA: Required to be able to access the camera device.
  • GET_ACCOUNTS: Allows access to the list of accounts in the Accounts Service.
  • READ_CALENDAR: Allows an application to read the user's calendar data.
  • READ_CONTACTS: Allows an application to read the user's contacts data.
  • READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Allows an application to read from external storage.
  • READ_PHONE_STATE: Allows read only access to phone state, including the phone number of the device, current cellular network information, the status of any ongoing calls, and a list of any PhoneAccounts registered on the device.
  • RECORD_AUDIO: Allows an application to record audio.
  • WRITE_CALENDAR: Allows an application to write the user's calendar data.
  • WRITE_CONTACTS: Allows an application to write the user's contacts data.
  • WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Allows an application to write to external storage.

Other permissions

  • ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE: Allows applications to access information about networks.
  • ACCESS_WIFI_STATE: Allows applications to access information about Wi-Fi networks.
  • GET_PACKAGE_SIZE: Allows an application to find out the space used by any package.
  • INSTALL_SHORTCUT: Allows an application to install a shortcut in Launcher.
  • INTERNET: Allows applications to open network sockets.
  • READ_SYNC_SETTINGS: Allows applications to read the sync settings.
  • RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED: Allows an application to receive the ACTION_BOOT_COMPLETED that is broadcast after the system finishes booting. If you don't request this permission, you will not receive the broadcast at that time. Though holding this permission does not have any security implications, it can have a negative impact on the user experience by increasing the amount of time it takes the system to start and allowing applications to have themselves running without the user being aware of them. As such, you must explicitly declare your use of this facility to make that visible to the user.
  • SET_ALARM: Allows an application to broadcast an Intent to set an alarm for the user.
  • VIBRATE: Allows access to the vibrator.
  • WAKE_LOCK: Allows using PowerManager WakeLocks to keep processor from sleeping or screen from dimming.
  • WRITE_SYNC_SETTINGS: Allows applications to write the sync settings.
  • android.permission.AUTHENTICATE_ACCOUNTS
  • android.permission.MANAGE_ACCOUNTS
  • android.permission.READ_PROFILE
