Google teased the desktop chat client for its Allo messaging service earlier this year. It has actually done that on a number of occasions without confirming when it’s going to be released. While the company hasn’t provided a confirmed release date as yet, it has said that the Google Allo desktop client release is going to take place in a “few more weeks.”
Nick Fox, Google’s vice president of communications, said back in May that the Google Allo desktop client was still “a month or two from public release.” That was the last update we had from the company on the matter.
Ideally, it should have been ready by now but it appears that Google still needs some more time to get it ready for public release. Amit Fulay, Head of Product for Google Allo and Duo, was asked on Twitter recently about when the desktop client is going to be ready.
Fulay confirmed that while the company is working on it, users shouldn’t expect it to be out for at least a “few more weeks.” That’s a vague timeline, a few more weeks could refer to as much as a month or more, so I’m sure that many would appreciate some clarity on the matter.
There’s no known reason for why it’s taking Google so long to come out with the desktop client. Hopefully, it will have more information about the matter soon.
On it … few more weeks
