Alo, launched in 2016, will going to end soon. Google plans to kill the Allo chat application by the middle of next year, the company said in blog post. Google said users have switched to Android Messages, the default messaging application that integrates SMS, MMS and Rich Communication Services (RCS). Although Google has the dominant operating system Android, Google never was able to create a chat experience to compete with Apple’s iMessage, Messenger, and WhatsApp from Facebook. At the same time, Google will focus entirely on developing messaging, the other chat app for Android phones. When Allo is on its way out, Google maintains the Duo, the video calling app.
