"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".

The last time Allo was updated on Android is January and the app has already shown signs of aging with bugs and Google Drive restore is borked. After the company announced Allo development had been "paused" back in April, a new report claims the app will be completely discontinued.

For the dustbin: Hangouts Classic and Allo. Moreover, the American-tech giant had also lost its Allo lead - Amit Fulay to Facebook earlier this year in January.

Today's announcement does a certain amount to change all that, but still leaves Messaging, Duo and Hangouts doing more or less the same job in a different way. In this case, many of Allos features were ported to Android Messages, the default SMS and soon-to-be RCS client on Android phones.

In parallel, we built Google Allo, a smart messaging app, to help you get more done in your chats and express yourself more easily.

As for Hangouts, the venerable chat app that launched with Google+, the company basically confirmed it would go away at some point last week, with users being "upgraded" to the Hangouts Chat and Hangouts Meet services now available for businesses.

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.

Hangouts, which is the consumer messaging app you may have adopted years ago and is attached to your Google account, is going to die at some point down the road. Until that happens, Google is apparently "fully committed to supporting Hangouts users in the meantime". Enter your email to be subscribed to our newsletter.
