Google Sends Allo To The Scrapheap

Google Sends Allo To The Scrapheap

A new banner on the official Allo website states that Google is "saying goodbye to Allo on March 12, 2019" and provides a link to learn how you can export your chats and more. At the time, Google said that "given Messages' continued momentum, we've chose to stop supporting Allo to focus on Message". Earlier this year we paused investment in Allo and brought some of its most-loved features-like Smart Reply, GIFs and desktop support-into Messages.

Allo used phone numbers as a login, similar to WhatsApp.

Your messages will be in a CSV file.

If I'm honest, I barely ran the app after it was released, except for looking in on periodic updates - and they were few and far between. Google hoped this would make it easier for people to start using Allo as a replacement for SMS.

The feature will be on by default and will be available to all G Suite Editions. At the time, Google was in the midst of announcing a reorganisation of its entire messaging platform strategy, which is a mess. At the end of 2018, Google confirmed Allo would shut down after it failed to gain traction.

Today, Google is culling one of those apps.

However, you can only delete your copy of the conversation history in Hangout Chat.

Go to then Menu, then Settings. The media will be stuffed into a single Zip file.

Google has ported many of Allo's popular features into the Messages app. Duo, the video chat app that launched alongside Allo, has been installed on more than a billion Android devices - that's ten times more than Allo. The messages export only includes text messages, not photos or videos.
