Google didn't dispute this in any of their clarifications, only acknowledging that they'll soon offer Hangouts users the chance to use Hangouts Chat, which is now only available to G Suite customers as more of a collaboration tool. But the blog post from Google's Matt Klainer, who is vice president of consumer communications products, only adds to the confusion.

Allo is the latest in a series of cross-platform messaging apps from Google to compete with the likes of Whats App and Facebook Messenger and offered consumer-facing features like stickers and encryption.

Following a report from 9to5Google about Google Allo's possible fate, Google released a blog post about the future of Allo, Duo, and Android Messages. Instead, Google will shift its focus to Android Messages, and bringing new features to the app, to make the SMS experience more efficient. "Allo will continue to work through March 2019".

Google revealed yesterday that it will shut down Allo, a messaging service that it launched in September 2016 alongside Duo, a video messaging service. - Given Messages continued momentum, weve chose to stop supporting Allo to focus on Messages. And after that it will be gone. Which messaging service do you use primarily?

After the rumours of Hangouts demise began circulating this past weekend, it seems Google is also looking at their other instant messaging client with thoughts of shuttering it as well.

"Hangouts Chat and Meet are primarily focused on team collaboration for G Suite customers and at some point will be made available for existing Hangouts users, too".

However, now it is not clear if all Hangouts users - and many of them are regular users who just have a Google account and aren't part of G Suite base - will get access to the Hangouts Chat and Meet or if it will be restricted to G Suite users.

More than 175 million Android users use Messages already according to Google.

Allo users in the months since have also reportedly been getting met with various bugs and broken features.
