In December 2018, Google announced that their future plans with the in-house messaging apps, including Allo, Duo and Hangouts. With the increased investment in the built-in Android Messages and RCS support, Google would discontinue Allo sometime in March 2019.

On 12 March, Allo was officially shutting down. Some of the Allo’s useful features, such as Smart Reply, GIF and desktop support, have already been integrated into Android Messages. Google will now shift its focus in developing the RCS messaging service.

Allo’s chat is not available anymore, but you should still be able to back up your chat records and media. Inside the Allo app, there are options to export data from chats to a CSV file or zip file in the settings.
