Personally, I recommend the "B" option as Bluestacks is very popular so if you run into any trobles using it, you can find good solutions on Google or Bing (lol). 

2: Now Install the Software Emulator on your Windows PC

If you successfully downloaded the Bluestacks.exe or Nox.exe, go to your Downloads folder on your computer or anywhere you ususally store downloaded files.

App Reviews

  • Eliminates freedoms turns your phone over to the police

    By Guy 528
    This app makes all of your texts, photos, voice memos and current location available to the police, 171 cases occurred where people used this app to sell drugs and marijuana and this app scans for words like “sell” “drugs” “weed” “police” and even words like “dome” “pyramid” “hollow” “eye” and “Antarctica” for some reason, it finds these words and sends all of your messages to law enforcement along with your current location and everything on your phone that you have the app access to, if your on the app, they can listen to you three your microphone, this app even got 4 people in prison for the rest of there life for growing marijuana, no one even wants it to be illegal but the government wants you sick and in pain so the pharmaceutical corporations get more money. The government just uses the police as pawns in there game of “who can steal the most money and kill off the most people” makes me sick.
  • Amazing app but there is one thing

    By hdkrjrbr
    The app is really useful and will even say it is better than iMessage if everyone was on it because there is this really cool gif feature what it does is when you are texting you can search for different gifs instead of having to download them. My family, friends and I would send random gifs to each other that are really funny. It even has a bitmoji feature where you can take a picture or customize your own little character so it creates stickers for you to use that kid of look like you. The only reason this app isn’t five stars for me is that it isn’t universal meaning you can’t just text a random phone number.
  • Too many bugs

    By johnlenin1
    Allo’s performance with images is woeful. Images in chats often appear in a low-resolution format only and won’t download the full-resolution version. Other times the thumbnail in the chat is full-resolution but when you tap to see the full-sized image all that appears is a black box. When you enter the app, it stops any music or radio stream you might have been listening to, even if you haven’t tapped on a video clip to play. More troubling, even though I have background app refresh turned off for this app, the battery usage screen in the Settings app shows that Allo has used 8% of my battery over the last 7 days, *with 8 hours in the background vs. 55 minutes on screen*. I’ve toggled the settings off and on and reinstalled the app, and it made no difference on my iPhone X. In addition, I have notification sounds turned off, yet there is an audible noise each time a message is received, whether the phone is locked or not, whether the app is in the background or not. The predictive text is good for a laugh, but I doubt that was the developer’s goal. The only positive thing I can say about the app is that the near constant crashes I used to suffer through seem to have stopped finally.
  • Crashes a lot, cannot send text with photos.

    By Dead Kenny B
    When I take a photo and click share, and select Allo, it just crashes and goes right back to the instant before I selected it. Before, when it did work, I could send a photo with text. Then it got to the point where if I tried to send multiple photos, it would just close and not do anything. Now it just crashes immediately. If I open the app and send a photo directly, I can send the photo and text, but only separately. It looks like it should be able to do it, but it doesn’t. Another annoying thing, when you start typing, it often (not always) starts with a lowercase letter. If you’re not paying attention, you’ll have to go back and correct it. (Yes, I’m a grammar Nazi.)
  • It’s no Apple messages.

    By _Shinkamui_
    As a dual platform guy I jumped on allo at launch hoping it would be the first legit competitor to Apple messages. It’s come a LONG way from launch but still misses the mark. The lack of sms support on either platform removes any chance of making this the ubiquitous messager on either platform. A lot of energy went into a very inferior sticker platform. The rich text and media support is almost great, when they get drag and drop support and multi device support I think we can at least have the conversation. For now I’m stuck with two messaging apps, messages for everyone I know on iOS and allo or sms for the remainder.
  • SMS fallback on existent

    By Super grizz 22 omega
    I understand what google is trying to do with RCS but why not make this sms fallback compatible as well? It would make the app so much more accessible and would give people a solid reason to use the app. That reason being. It works to message anyone wether they have the app or NOT. The application itself isn’t half bad it’s smooth the features are thought out well and google assistant is always a pleasure... The insane way they were able to cut out a majority of people I message by not using the fallback makes this very tough to get other people to use since it is locked together. With RCS which again I’m excited for RCS but it’s so little and far between to be something extremely useful. 😕
  • Fun to use. Useful as Walkie Talkie

    By Awful Pretty
    Great app for my wife and I to stay in contact throughout the day. App has only two annoying quirks that we routinely encounter. 1. When the voice conversation is set to “auto play” any message received by the other person, when I’m in the middle of recording my own outgoing message, will cancel my outgoing message with no warning when the other person’s message starts to play. This is extremely annoying when a 30 second outgoing message gets interrupted in second 29 and I have to start over. 2. I have a difficult time activating record mode with my fat fingers. Sometime I feel the vibration as if recording has started. I even feel the vibration when I let go of the button - just as if it recorded - but sadly it didn’t. Would really appreciate having a larger record button with tactile feedback that you can depend on. Thanks for the great app.
  • Love!

    By Nimichan12386
    I do not want to go back to iMessage after using this app! I love that we can change the theme fitting the situation! Like a darker one for night! And if we get bored one one theme we can go to another. Which brings me to the suggestion of adding more themes? Or even letting us customize our own themes! That’d be pretty cool :) I also love the stickers, they are adorable and perfect for keeping the conversation a little more fun! Overall I this is my favorite messaging app could not recommend this enough.
  • My favorite communication app

    By ImNotPancakes
    I work on cruise ships and we get charged more than guests for Wi-Fi. This app works on the Wi-Fi network without having to pay. All of us on ships have downloaded the app to easily communicate with each other. I have also made my family back home get this app so I can keep them up to date on my travels and let them know I'm safe. I was sad to hear Google was giving up on allo, but I hope they don't remove the app completely.
  • Great app!

    By wiwitah
    I really like this app, but I wish it would have more features like video calling or calling incorporated. Instead, you have to download another app just for you to be able to video call. Another thing I’d like to see is new themes! I feel like the ones provided are all too similar. It would also be great if it allowed you to change the wallpaper using your own photos. I really enjoy this app, but it just needs a few more things in my opinion.
