Block someone in Google Allo

You can block someone from messaging you in Google Allo.

When you block someone

  • You won't receive messages from the phone number you blocked in a one-on-one chat with them.
  • You can't add the person you blocked to any groups. Nor can the person you blocked add you to any groups.
