"We're continuing to invest in Hangouts and it will remain a standalone product," a Google spokesperson tells Business Insider.

+Jillian D'Onfro​ writes in Business Insider:

Google won't kill Hangouts because it thinks the two serve different purposes.

For one, Hangouts is tied to Google's enterprise For Work products that's aimed at business customers, and which includes Gmail and Docs, and is available on desktop. Allo, by contrast, is mobile only, doesn't require a [Google account], and is focused on the power of artificial intelligence.
