    I just wish they would pick one and support it... I am getting so tired of moving people to new products.
    I think they want to make Messages their main messaging app. With development on Allo stopped and reports that Hangouts and Allo are being killed off, it seems like Google want to push for Messages to be the iMessage competitor.

    Google messaging 'strategy' has been nothing short of a mess.

    Guess not as the axe has dropped, officially from Google: https://www.blog.google/products/mes...-and-hangouts/

    Very clearly was a dead product as soon as Google said they were going to focus on Messages and push RCS for it - meant that Allo served no purpose. Don't know how people couldn't see it/argued that wasn't going to be killed off. Lol.

    I think this paragraph from the blog post is key

    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. We’re fully committed to supporting Hangouts users in the meantime
    I read that as "Hangouts isn't REALLY going away just yet, but it will once we have a suitable replacement".

    I like Android Messages and I like that I don't have to make people download it for me to communicate with them. It also works in my browser on my computer and as an app on my Chromebook. Now if only I could get my petty *** friends to text me and not turn their nose up at "green bubbles"
