SMS support has been ended officially by Google for Hangouts today. Google already warned us before a month for this step. If you are not on Project Fi or Google Voice — then SMS Support is still available for you this is the end of an era.
Many users started using Hangouts just after the SMS support feature. Conversations integration from SMS and Hangouts at one place made it more useful and simple to use.
There is no word from Google for the SMS support in Allo or any other app.
If you still plan on using Hangouts for chats going forward, make sure you’ve updated Hangouts to the latest version of over at Google Play or APKMirror.
