Google might shut down Allo, messaging app "soon". a source said to 9to5google that Google might shut down Allo, as company paused investment in "Allo" 8 months ago and "Google lost its allo lead" said Amit Fulay (Head of Product), before leaving Google to join Facebook.
It's not first time, recent report said that Hangouts will get shut down but company clears the rumor and said classic hangout will be split into two products Hangouts Chat and Hangouts Meet. but the core of story was ultimately proven true.
