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

Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are getting RCS'Chat on Verizon starting December 6

In a blog post that went live shortly after the original report, Google confirmed that Allo will no longer work after March of 2019.

Allo joins Hangouts "Classic" on the scrapheap, after it was revealed that Google is working towards moving people on to the newer Hangouts Meet and Hangouts Chat apps. With little staff assigned to work on Allo, and very small amount of consumer adoption for Google's instant messaging service there's little reason to keep it around. Duo or video messaging.

For the last six years, after killing the GTalk, Google is trying to take on WhatsApp.

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 chose to explain their plans in their own words. However, the sense here is that Google is carefully using the words that is letting it deny the coming demise of Hangouts, but Hangouts users will definitely find the app changed significantly by the end of the year.

We heard reports of Google's plans of shutting down Allo, and the company has now confirmed this. "Given Messages' continued momentum, we've made a decision to stop supporting Allo to focus on Messages", Klainer wrote on Thursday. Users will be able to export their existing conversation history from the app before the service shuts down. However, the RCS chat from Verizon will be a carrier-based in its application, which will bring-in iMessage rival for Google. The company says that it will continue to add smart features to Android Messages to upgrade the SMS platform further. The company promises they will continue to improve the service with features that utilize machine learning. These are mainly focused on team collaboration for G Suite customers and will be available for Hangout users also. Until that happens, Google is apparently "fully committed to supporting Hangouts users in the meantime".
