Allo, Duo, Hangouts, and also the stock Android messaging app... what the heck is Google thinking? Why do they constantly fragment their products like this. This doesn't make any sense.
Why can't they make a single unified communication app that works well?
Why not just upgrade an already existing app with a wide user base?
Fwiw, I love Hangouts, but practically no one I know uses it. The same is true for their two new apps as well
