Google Allo Is Shutting Down: Here's How to Save Your Chat History

06 December 2018, 02:26 | Casey Mitchell

The tech giant announced in a blog post that it's ending support for the messaging app next March.

As we talked about earlier, Allo stopped getting attention from Google back in April as the team was pulled off of its development and put onto Android Messages. As the original article notes, there has been no activity from Google to update the platform or address a myriad of user problems, and the developer lead has left Google and moved on to Facebook.

"Verizon and Google will be rolling out enhanced messaging (RCS) in the Messages app on Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3 XL beginning this Thursday, December 6th". Despite its promise, the app never gained traction and seeing it shuttered would be unsurprising. In this case, many of Allos features were ported to Android Messages, the default SMS and soon-to-be RCS client on Android phones. With Hangouts and Allo out of the way, Google may finally have a straightforward approach to messaging.

BT excludes Huawei from 5G network, to remove 4G equipment
BT pledged to avoid doing so despite working closely with Huawei since 2005, the FT noted. As a result, Huawei have not been included in vendor selection for our 5G core.

Google's big bet this time is on Messages, a chat experience based on RCS that the company builds into the Android device to position it as a direct competitor to Apple's iMessage.

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.

Duo, the video calling application, lives on as well and won't suffer the same fade as Allo.

Huawei executive arrested by Canadian officials at United States request
Justice Department spokesman Ian McLeod said Meng Wanzhou was detained in Vancouver, British Columbia, on Saturday. The report said existing Huawei equipment at the firm's current 3G and 4G networks would also be removed.

A few days after reports emerged that Google is going to kill Hangouts chat app, which has millions of users, the company is trying to clear air about what it is doing to all those gazillion chat apps it has.

Google has also said that it will be changing the classic hangout to hangout chats and hangout meets on both mobile and desktop. Indeed, Google vice president Anil Sabharwal acknowledged as much about eight months ago in an interview, saying that the company would be putting a pause on additional investment into Allo.

With Android Messages Chat, you're no longer limited to 160 characters.
