[News] Google Messages Will Stop Working On Uncertified Android Devices In March 31

Assalamu Alaikum, Dear Mi Fans
Greetings from Mi Community Bangladesh Tech Team! We hope you and your family are safe and well.

Google Messages is one of the more popular apps from Google, and many users make use of it every day without even realizing that they use it. The name is rather generic, and a lot of devices ship with it pre-installed as their default SMS and RCS client. It seems that later this year, Google intends for its Messages app to stop working on uncertified Android devices.

For a device that runs the Android operating system to be formally considered an “Android,” it needs to go through Google’s certification process ahead of release. Certified devices are allowed to come with Google’s suite of apps pre-installed, including critical ones like Google Play Services.

As the message clearly spells it out, Messages will stop working on uncertified Android devices from March 31, 2021 onwards. Uncertified Android devices are those devices that run on Android, but skipped through or failed Google’s official certification process for Google Mobile Services. These devices do not come with the mandatory Google apps, but the sellers of such devices usually have advisories on how users can sideload Google apps and service frameworks. Google did put an end to such practices from device makers, but Google Messages as an app remained immune from the fallout of those decisions. Google Messages has been irrelevant to the conversation of uncertified Android devices, as the app is not preinstalled on most devices, and must instead be installed via the Google Play Store. However, this seems to not be the case for much longer. With Google Messages 7.2 beta, rolling out now via the Google Play Store.

If you have an uncertified Android device, the app will not work. This is presumed to be an extension of the RCS End-to-End encryption rollout, as Google will not be able to guarantee if an uncertified device is not compromised, and the consequent conversation from users of these devices is not compromised in any way. Considering how small of a user base this would in the grand world of active Android devices with GMS, this would be a small plug to pull for Google.
