Start a group chat

You can start a group chat with friends through Google Allo. You can message anyone in your contacts who has Allo or who can be reached through an app preview message or an SMS notification.

Groups are limited to 256 people. You can add people directly, share the chat's link, or use a QR code. If you can't send a message using Allo, you'll see "Invite" next to the contact's name.

You can do the following on Allo’s mobile app, but not on Allo for web:

  • Leave a group chat
  • Change the group chat link, name, and avatar
