Google Allo to Get the Axe Soon, According to Sources

Google states that many of Allo's best features have made their way to Messages, and that they've chose to "stop supporting Allo to focus on Messages".

As mentioned, Allo will continue to work till March 2019, and before that users are advised to export all of their chat history from the app.

Following a report from 9to5Google about Google Allo's possible fate, Google released a blog post about the future of Allo, Duo, and Android Messages. Many U.S. carriers have already announced plans to embrace RCS and some even added support for the messaging service to a couple of phones. They claim Allo will be shut down "soon", but the announcement may have been delayed due to the previous report about Hangouts.

The resolution says Iran is "called upon" to refrain for up to eight years from work on ballistic missiles created to deliver nuclear weapons.

After a couple of new reports attempted to share Google's timeline for shuffling around its messaging apps, possibly killing a couple of them, the company made a decision to explain their plans in their own words. The likelihood of a fix seems low, considering that the entire Allo team was moved to work on Android Messages and spent the last several months porting over much of Allo's features and functionality to an RCS-based iteration of Android Messages.

As Google has done with previous platforms and services, it starts them up to learn the ins and outs until eventually Google applies what it learned from the failed product into a new one.

Duo, the video calling application, lives on as well and won't suffer the same fade as Allo. After the update, Verizon Pixel 3/XL users will be able to send larger text messages (up to 8,000 characters long), as well as see when their contacts are typing a conversation.

A few days after reports emerged that Google is going to kill Hangouts chat app, which has millions of users, the company is trying to clear air about what it is doing to all those gazillion chat apps it has. We don't know how these enterprise apps will change to accommodate regular users, but we'll know more when the time comes for Google to kill off Hangouts Classic.

Android Messages and Duo will be a two-pronged attack.
