Google Allo to Get the Axe Soon, According to Sources
Verizon to deliver major messaging enhancements to Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL
06 December, 2018, 14:26
Currently, Android Messages uses traditional SMS, for the most part. According to 9to5Google, we can soon expect Google to announce the beginning of the end for the company's short-lived chat app. - Given Messages continued momentum, weve chose to stop supporting Allo to focus on Messages.
If youve been trying to access Allo today, you probably were upset to find that an outage wasnt letting messages go through and Google Assistant, which first launched on Allo, was not working either. No one expected Google to release yet another messaging app when they already had Hangouts. In 2017, the head of Allo left Google for Facebook, and shortly thereafter most of the Allo team moved over to Android Messages.
Google Allo vs. iMessage: Which one does it best? 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.

Android Messages and Duo will be a two-pronged attack. After the update, VerizonPixel 3/XL users will be able to send larger text messages (up to 8,000 characters long), as well as see when their contacts are typing a conversation. The company promises they will continue to improve the service with features that utilize machine learning.
The blog post also mentions that Hangouts Meet and Chat will eventually become available to all users, and the company is "fully committed to supporting Hangouts users in the meantime". We don't know how these enterprise apps will change to accommodate regular users, but we'll know more when the time comes for Google to kill off Hangouts Classic. Those are the only phones on Verizon that'll get RCS for now, but Verizon does say that it plans to expand the feature to more phones "in the future".
