Google Allo Joins Other Dead Products List, to Stop After March 2019

Google Hangouts Chat RCS

In March of a year ago, we announced plans to evolve classic Hangouts to focus on two experiences that help bring teams together: Hangouts Chat and Hangouts Meet.

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. The latest victim, which will soon class as a failed experiment, is the chat app for Android, iOS, and the Web called Allo.

Allo will continue to work through March 2019 and until then, you'll be able to export all of your existing conversation history from the app-here are instructions on how to do so.

Hangouts precursor Google Talk lived on within Gmail for over a decade, only to be finally phased out in favor of Hangouts past year.

A SpaceX commentator called it a "bummer", but noted it was secondary to the main mission of getting the Dragon capsule to orbit. At least three more launches - two from Cape Canaveral , one from Vandenberg - are expected before the year is out.

Allo development, as slow as it was, has been on hold since Google announced they were re-focusing their messaging efforts on the Rich Communications Services (RCS) powered "Chat" platform in their Android Messages app back in April. Allo is no longer being developed or invested in, and as of March 2019 it will stop working entirely. Duo will continue being developed as the company says it has seen strong growth across both major smartphone operating systems. When Hangouts is shut down, Google can better diversify its messaging user base across its five remaining apps, I guess. Before it's fully offered up to Hangouts users, it'll first open up an opportunity for G Suite users to invite people outside of their organizations. "And by refocusing on Messages and Duo for consumers and Hangouts Chat and Hangouts Meet for team collaboration, we're focused on delivering a simpler and more unified communications experience for all of you".

Regarding Hangouts Meet, the company recently launched the ability to organize meetings with up to 100 participants, making it easier for businesses to use.
