Google brings this much-needed new feature to Hangouts Chat

Google Allo shutting down today. Save your chat history

The link leads to a blog post written by Matt Klainer, Vice President, Consumer Communications Products, in December 2018, which explained the company's plans for the messaging app.

The most recent release of Allo, version 27, added an export feature so you can grab your chats and stash them safely for posterity.

We've known for a while now that Google's Allo messaging service would be following in Google+'s footsteps, but a specific close data hadn't been revealed - we only knew that it'd be shutting down this month.

YouTube Music & YouTube Premium Subscription Services Launched in India
And if you purchased a Galaxy S10, you get four months of full YouTube Premium for free, assuming that you're a new customer. You also get access to YouTube Originals, such as Cobra Kai , and can download more than 100 tracks for offline playback.

Allo used phone numbers as a login, similar to WhatsApp. At the time, Google said that "given Messages' continued momentum, we've chose to stop supporting Allo to focus on Message". Exporting messages from chats won't include photos or videos. The information is as official as it gets, as it is featured on a banner on Google's own Allo website. You can download the v4.1.065 update from APK Mirror if it's not yet reached your device via the Play Store. In Settings, you will find the Chat option, tap on that and you will see two options - Export messages from chats and Export stored media from chats. The messaging app and video service suffered very different fates, however.

Your media attachments will be in a zip file. You had your messages, your Allo and Duo, your Hangouts Chat and Meet, your YouTube chat, Voice, Hangouts Classic and so on. The app will still work if you attempt to log in or send messages today, but that won't be the case much longer. Google Allo was unveiled back in 2016 alongside Duo but never really took off.
