See, delete, or clear your chat history

Your Allo conversations are stored on Google's servers or on your device.

When you delete conversations or clear your history within conversations, the messages will be deleted from Google's servers and on your own device. The messages won't be deleted or cleared on the devices of the people you chatted with.

To delete your chats with your Google Assistant, you’ll need to delete the activity in your one-on-one chat setting with your Google Assistant.

See your chat history

You'll see your recent conversations when you open Allo. To see specific messages in your chat history:

  1. Open the conversation you want to view.
  2. Scroll up or down to find the message or messages you're looking for.

To delete a conversation or message, use your Allo mobile app.

Clear chat history

  1. On your computer, open Allo for web.
  2. Click the conversation .
  3. In the top right, click the profile icon and then Clear history.
