Google Allo messages can be seen and sent from your PC via Pushbullet
The recently launched Google Allo smart messaging app just got an interesting new feature, via the third-party Pushbullet service. It has updated its Android app so that users can see and reply to messages sent to them on their PC as well as on their smartphone.
Here’s how to set up this useful feature. First you have to actually download the Android Pushbullet app on your phone. After you sign in to the app, you have to enable the Notification Mirroring in its settings. Finally, you have to install a version of Pushbullet on your PC. You have the choice of downloading its browser extension or you can get the full Windows desktop app.
After that you should be set up to receive any Allo messages sent to your smartphone on your PC as well, and you can reply to those messages directly from the PC as well. Pushbullet says, quite rightly, that this is not a full version of an Allo desktop app on the PC (which is not likely to happen) but it’s better than nothing. Will you be using this new feature with your Allo app?
