Add contacts

To find or add a contact to send messages to, make sure you've allowed Allo access to your contacts.

Give Allo access to your contacts

Check your permissions for Allo, so that you've given the app access to your contacts.

Make sure you've given Allo access to your contacts.

  1. Go to your device's Settings.
  2. Tap Apps and then Allo and then Permissions.
  3. Switch Contacts to On On.

Add contacts

If you don't see a contact you're looking for, first check the following:

  • Go to your phone's Contacts. Check that the person you're trying to reach is listed there. 
  • If the person isn't in your Contacts: Add them and their phone number.
