Using Allo for web on Firefox or Opera will work exactly the same as it has been on Chrome for almost two months. As with the earlier support, users will still need to download the latest version of Allo for Android and iOS. After installing the app tap on the menu on the lefs side of the app and select “Allow for Web”, now on your computer open the link allo.google.com/web via Opera or Firefox you will get a QR code on web landing page, to scan with your phone. After a few seconds to load up conversations, the Google Allo web client should be working.
