My thoughts, agree?
 
More Messaging Apps?

I've seen a lot of chatter on the web since Google announced their new services;
Spaces: https://googleblog.blogspot.co.uk/2016/05/introducing-spaces-tool-for-small-group.html
Allo & Duo: https://googleblog.blogspot.co.uk/2016/05/allo-duo-apps-messaging-video.html

The conversation seems to be why are Google releasing new products instead of updating existing older ones.

I think this is because Google don't want to put all of their eggs in one basket, their previous strategy was tie everything into Google+, that didn't get the uptake that Google expected and after significant backlash Google reversed that strategy.

In the technology world first impressions last, people will try new products and services but if they don't wow them they won't return. It won't matter what new bells and whistles they add laterthey will only return if their friends start using the product but if everyone had that same first impression that isn't going to happen.

Google is such a big company full of geniuses, if they think of a new way to do messaging why wouldn't they see if it works, just because it may overlap with another product isn't a good enough reason not to? When Google sit still other companies take over, if Google don't build these products then someone else will. The new tactic seems to be throw a bunch of stuff at the wall and see what sticks, why waste years again by only allowing one messenger app when you can let the public pick and choose what Google messaging app they want to use.

Do people ask Facebook to Merge Facebook and Instagram? Or to merge Whatsapp and Facebook Messenger? They serve different purposes to different people. Google seem to be following suit but first they need the apps, this is stage one.

This makes perfect sense for a data driven company, to rely on one products success seems like a strange concept for such a diverse company with billions of potential customers. The only question is will this dilute the Google brand? Some may already argue that this is already the case.

Android Apps Coming To Chrome OS

Why this wasn't announced at the keynote is beyond, never the less yessssss.

This could make Chrome OS the perfect OS, before it just lacked the apps and now it will have them. This should tick off everything that Chromebooks couldn't do.
 
"Today we announced that we’re adding the best mobile app experiences in the world, Android apps and the Google Play store, to the best browser in the world, Chrome! Come to this session and test your Android apps for Chrome OS. You will get hands on help from our friendly engineers on how to optimize your Android app for Chromebooks. Oh, and we will also be giving the first 50 developers to show up a free Chromebook so they can get a head start bringing their apps to Chrome!"

Google To Release Two New Messaging Apps This Summer

Just announced at IO were two new messaging apps from Google that work together.

Allo: is a group messaging app like Hangouts but with loads of modern features like a Google Bot, smart suggestions for replying and built in Google search.

Duo: is a light weight one on one video messaging app built for performance with one unique feature, you can view the video before you accept. Could be very interesting.

Where this leaves Hangouts I'm not sure, too be honest I don't care! Bring on summer.
#Edit - apparently nothing is happening to Hangouts: http://www.androidpolice.com/2016/05/18/even-with-allo-and-duo-hangouts-will-remain-as-a-separate-app-in-googles-ecosystem/

YouTube Messenger?

I like the sound of this, instead of sharing a YouTube video to your friends on other networks like Facebook or Twitter like you do currently YouTube have made a private place to share within the YouTube app.

Makes perfect sense to me, if you share a video you are leaving YouTube for another site. They want to keep you watching videos on their site not disappearing to Facebook to watch their videos.

This could potentially change how we use YouTube in a big way, I personally share YouTube videos to my family on Hangouts & Google+ but seems more natural to do it within the YouTube app.

I see this as part of the war between Google and Facebook, Facebook has some of biggest social networks in the world:
Facebook
Facebook Messenger
Instagram
WhatsApp

In comparison Google's biggest network is YouTube and they are gifting views and users to Facebook's networks, if Google can retain more users on YouTube then it is good news for Google's advertisers and content creator's.

#Edit- Hands On: http://www.androidpolice.com/2016/05/13/hands-on-with-youtubes-new-shared-videos-tab-we-actually-love-it/
Here's the thing: Native sharing is great for YouTube's business.
