Google Allo Says "Goodbye" Today

Now you can delete your conversation history in Hangout Chat

If you were actually using it though, you can export messages on your device (it's under Settings, or see Google's put up a support page with detailed instructions).

Google has officially shuttered the service, saying on the Allo website that the service is "signing off".

You can still download your chats from Allo, but you'll have to be quick.

Allo, Google's iMessage competitor is being shut down, and users will no longer be able to export older messages from the app. Earlier this year we paused investment in Allo and brought some of its most-loved features-like Smart Reply, GIFs and desktop support-into Messages.

Compared to Duo, which has been downloaded more than a billion times from the Play Store, Google Allo also gained super-modest traction on Android, with only 10 million+ installs. After opening the Allo app, head over to Menu and then tap on Settings.

It's time to say goodbye to Allo! All of your messages will be completely deleted, though conversations you've had with Google Assistant will remain stored on Google's servers (you can delete them if you wish).

Export messages from chats: This only includes message text, not photos or videos.

Choose where you want to store the files. The exported messages are stored in CSV file format and includes details like Conversation name, ID, sender, message type, and message content. The media will be stuffed into a single Zip file.

Allo now joins Hangouts, Google+ and Inbox by Gmail in the Google graveyard.

Allo was launched back in 2016 alongside Google's first-party video calling app, Duo.
