Kiyasuriin, 13 Mar 2019Will not be missed. Less bloatware.Google probably has 3 more apps in pipeline to take Allo's place.

Anonymous, 13 Mar 2019next one will be the google keepGoogle keep is good note taking app and it has no restrictions on numbers of devices it synced on unlike Evernote on which you have to pay monthly premium in order use it on more than 2 devices.
Google keep is well built, functional and easy to use app.

Will not be missed. Less bloatware.

Predictive reply, it just not human. Better to type manually because I am human not a f**king robot. Just shut down quickly too bad. I have never using Allo, what is that? A messenger apps or what. Goodbye Allo. Google should make better artificial intelligence apps than this Allo.

And another Google app bites the dust.
Google's just doing too much stuff, and eventually they overlap. They really lack long-term vision. Yet, Allo had a huuuuge launch success. Again, no long-term vision
