Google Allo is an instant messaging mobile app by Google for the Android and iOS mobile operating systems finds its initial release on September 2016. The company is now in focusing Android Message application and Hangouts chat and Meet for businesses and Duo for consumers. Google Allo shutdown date is set for the end of March 2019.
The blog post mentioned that "Given Messages' continued momentum, we've decided to stop supporting Allo to focus on Messages. Allo will continue to work through March 2019 and until then, you'll be able to export all of your existing conversation histories from the app-here are instructions on how to do so. We've learned a lot from Allo, particularly what's possible when you incorporate machine learning features, like the Google Assistant, into messaging.
