In fact, this will impact G Suite customers, more likely on the enterprise side of things. We know that Google Voice integration will be saved.
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.
We don't know when exactly Hangouts will be going away, but given how much neglect this messaging client has faced, we wouldn't be surprised.
Technically, Allo is not dead... just yet. But you may want to switch to Android Messages already, and get ready to forget all about archaic SMS technology.

If you've got Google Voice integrated into Hangouts, your conversations list won't be as neat going forward. SMS and Hangouts-based convos split apart.
When the Internet was coming into its own back in the ’90’s, we were migrating from “classic” uses (Archie, Finger, Ping, Usenet, FTP, Email, web browsing, etc.), to a more “modern” set. Chances are that you’ve heard of a couple of those, whereas the others have all but faded out of commonality. Today web technologies power most of what we do, and it looks like email is next on the chopping block. If that’s the case, will chat apps replace email as our preferred form of communication? And if so, why does Google think I need five apps to [...]
