With unique features like other messaging app, Google Messages has become an essential SMS/MMS app for Android.
It seems that, later this year,
Google intends for its Messages app to stop working on uncertified Android devices.
The notice was spotted in the app code of beta app version 7.2 of the Google Messages app.
On March 31, Messages will stop working on uncertified devices, including this one.
Keep in mind that Google may or may not ever ship these features, and our interpretation of what they are may be imperfect.
We’ll try to enable those that are closer to being finished, however, to show you how they’ll look in the case that they do ship.
For a device that runs the Android operating system to be formally considered an “Android”.
It needs to go through Google’s certification process before it is released.
Certified devices are allowed to come with Google’s suite of apps pre-installed, including critical ones like Google Play Services.
It was possible to manually install such Google apps on an uncertified Android device.
That’s until two years ago when Google started trying to prevent uncertified devices from logging in to a Google Account.
Generally speaking, Google Messages for web has been irrelevant to the conversation of uncertified Android devices, even as the app is not pre-installed on most devices, and must instead be installed in the Google Play Store.
However, this does not seem to be the case for much longer.
With Google Text Message 7.2 beta, which is now being rolled out via the Play Store, a new notice has been added to the app code.
Simply put, if your phone is an uncertified Android device, you’ll lose access to the Google Messages app starting on March 31.
While uncertified Androids are generally rare for the average person to find, there are a few notable examples, such as new devices Huawei.
One potential reason for the change is the recent addition of end-to-end encryption to Google Messages.
Last year, when Google reiterated that Huawei device owners shouldn’t sideload Play Services onto their phones,
They emphasized that uncertified devices have not had their security verified.
Therefore, encrypted messages on those devices could potentially be compromised.
Google Messages App Is Not Respond Without Certification:

There are several reasons why a mobile phone might appear uncertified in Google Play.
Most obvious because it came without pre-installed Google Services,
like the latest Huawei releases, and you have informally installed them.
Besides, this when you install a ROM or if you have a mobile device in which the manufacturing company is a pirate and has included Google services without a license.
The news is based on a google text message application,
That literally indicates that “on March 31, Messages will stop working on uncertified mobile phones.
At present, Google has not mentioned it,
And even though the text is in the application, nothing has been approved until it begins to be shown to customers.
We’ll know something about the date of March 31, the date indicated as the deadline.
