In Whatsapp, the web client pairing is done in a simple and pretty good manner and the application imposes the limitations to the web client like the phone needs to be placed in the surrounding near the area when setting to connect to the device. The data connection needs to be enabled on both of the pairing devices to work seamlessly. The Whatsapp web client is still yet to arrive and it clearly depicts that the Google Allo is also adopting the same features just like Whatsapp web client and the app is not opting for the standalone capabilities.
