At Google I/O in Would possibly, Google presented the global to new messaging and video apps called Allo and Duo that left many people questioning what the long run of Hangouts can be. In spite of everything, Hangouts used to be initially launched as the do-all messaging app of the long run, the place messaging and video chatting and SMS and Google Voice would all come in combination to rid us of getting to make use of two or 3 or six other apps. In fact, that imaginative and prescient hasn't ever aligned and Hangouts has been the butt of jokes for years as customers in the shopper area flock to WhatsApp and Fb Messenger. Going ahead, Google seems to be in a position to confess defeat, in a means, as soon as Allo launches and Hangouts will get an undertaking center of attention.
In line with Google’s Nick Fox who spoke with Engadget, Hangouts gained’t be going any place and goes to proceed to live to tell the tale as its irritating self, however as it grows, it is going to get a industry center of attention. That signifies that Allo goes to be the shopper superstar that Google will need you to make use of for messaging with family and friends.
Fox says that a few of the Hangouts center of attention for the undertaking has to do with it being hooked up for your Google account and the get entry to that brings to different Google products and services (Gmail, Calendar, Force, and so on.). On the different hand, it’s simply now not that straightforward of an app with its all-in-one method, but does paintings just right as a collaboration software. And that’s almost certainly the place we’ll proceed to peer it develop is in the collaboration area.
Once more, Hangouts isn’t going any place any time quickly (if ever), however it doesn’t sound like Google needs us the use of it for the ones informal conversations. As an alternative, Google needs us on Allo and Duo and the new options (like Google Assistant embedded) they bring about. Plus, they just require a phone quantity, now not a Google account.
