It replaced Hangouts as a default Android app on many devices be they phones or tablets, so it makes sense that it's spread fast.
Shortly after rumors piled on about recent internal shakeups with Google's messaging clients, Google came to confirm the news: Allo is dead.
A G Suite lead says that remaining Hangouts users will have a safety net in messaging with Hangouts Chat and Hangouts Meet.

Who cares if your computer is a Mac or Windows or even Linux? If you have a web browser, you can access your Android phone's messages now.
Koum left a cordial note as he left the door and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerburg returned the same. But reporting says that the tensions have been deep over the direction of WhatsApp.
The messaging application is taking a different approach than its parent company in limiting its liability for keeping sensitive user data private. And Facebook's tactic is raising some eyebrows.
