The company will close Hangouts for ordinary users
Google officially said it will do with its messengers. As you know, the assets of the Corporation, there are several solutions for different tasks. This Allo, and Hangouts, and Duo, and Messages. But now in mountain view will fundamentally change the situation, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to internetua.com.
The company will close Hangouts for normal users, but will launch two versions for business. This apps Hangouts Hangouts Chat and Meet. Ordinary users, apparently, will offer the service of video Duo. Google stated that this application is being actively used on Android and iOS. Also, it already has support for iPad and Android tablets, chromebooks and smart displays.
Another service – Google Allo – as previously reported, will close in March 2019. The company said that they plan to focus on developing Messages. Also alternative Allo will be the RCS service Chat, which has yet to launch in the US for smartphones Pixel 3 and 3 XL. This is the analogue of the “Apple” of the system iMessage, which will also develop with the help of mobile operators and work on their infrastructure and not the Internet.
Thus, the company decided to restore order in the “zoo” of their messengers, which certainly have a positive impact on their popularity. On the other hand, Google still has not made the obvious step is to add a single communications Protocol and a common system of authorization that would allow you to use different apps for the same tasks, not to keep the device a few programs.
