Yesterday at the Google I/O 2016 conference they announced several new products. In the video below I share some thoughts about the new collaboration/communication tools Allo, Duo and Spaces. Some topics include:
- Where do these tools fit into the portfolio? How do they compare the Messenger and Hangouts?
- No matter how good the tools are, how do you get people to use them versus Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, FaceTime, SnapChat and others? It’s like Google+ vs Facebook, the best tool does not always win, as what matters is where is your network?
- How will these tools integrate with Gmail, and Google Apps for Work

How they fit in to people's eco-system is a really good question. We already have people confused about what app they should use at what time. Arguably the network effect is going to be the only force compelling people other than fanboys from moving.
