Google has finally updated its Allo to work with desktop starting this month. The desktop app runs in the browser and the phone is actually used as a proxy to send or receive messages.

However if users don’t like to keep the Allo tab open then they can use the unofficial Web Wrapper. This is not an official Allo desktop app but is a web wrapper compiled by Kelvin Nguyen on GitHub. The Web Wrapper uses Electron to render everything. The Allo uses the operating systems built in notification system.

The wrapper is not having a installer on Windows so users would need to extract it to somewhere and run it from there. Users could actually add it to their Windows Startup items menu and launch it automatically when logged in.

The Web Wrapper is available for download on Windows and can be done so by clicking the below link. Do let us know your first impressions after the download in the comments below.
