Allo is now a fallen madonna after one of Google's bigger boobies

Google confirms Allo will shutdown in March - GSMArena.com news

Google Allo, the messaging app it launched back in September 2016, is being shut down. In my opinion, Google history of copying the app and then miserably failing in competing with rivals is the biggest mistakes that Google is making that is what they have to understand.

Google is notorious for shutting down communication apps: over the years, numerous services like Buzz, Wave, and Google+ have met their end at Mountain View.

"Given Messages' continued momentum, we've chose to stop supporting Allo to focus on Messages", the company added. He says that Hangouts is not going to be killed, at least not for all, but Allo is definitely dying. Google says Duo is its "highest rated mobile apps and is seeing strong growth and engagement across both Android and iOS".

Impact: In this somewhat lengthy blog post from Google, it mentioned Messages, Duo, Hangouts Chat and Hangouts Meet. According to Google, rather than resuming work on Allo, it will shutter the project and focus its efforts on Messages. - Given Messages continued momentum, weve made a decision to stop supporting Allo to focus on Messages. Users can find media from the app they already downloaded in the Google Allo folder within the Google Photos app. Google provides more information and instructions here.

Currently Google has seven messaging apps - so much for, the one messaging app to rule them all.

The other report I referenced at the start of this involved Allo, Google's never-popular-because-it-had-major-flaws messaging app.

Android Messages and Duo. Hangouts Meet is also for video calls, but geared at groups and meetings.

Writing in its bog, a spokesgoogle said it plans to support another one of its chat apps, Hangouts, until it makes two of its enterprise apps, Hangouts Chat and Meet, available for non-paying users.

We also know that Hangouts classic will be going the same way the following year, with those users also moved to Hangouts Meet and Hangouts Chat, two services that are now enterprise-focused.
