The messaging apps segment is already saturated. The big players include Skype, Whatsapp, Viber, Snapchat, Facebook messenger,i-message and the line between a messaging app, VOIP and social media blurs as these apps take a life of their own. Even Google has Hangouts and Duo. Allo is supposed to make messaging smarter, but is that what people want?

It would have been more prudent add the AI into Hangouts, instead of spinning of another app. Google has a history of starting projects and abruptly stopping them. Allo might be the addition to the graveyard.
