Some Huawei phone users will soon be blocked from messaging friends on Android
GOOGLE has announced a pretty major change to its popular Messages app, which will block some devices from sending texts using the service – including the latest models from Huawei.
Google is making some major changes to its popular Messages app, which will leave some smartphone users unable to chat via the popular service. From March 2021, certain “uncertified” Android devices will be blocked from downloading and using the platform which will be a major blow to millions. Of those devices singled-out by the ban, newer Huawei smartphones are likely to cause the biggest disruption – with owners of these handsets soon to be left unable to use Google Messages to speak to friends and family, or participate in Group Chats.
Tucked inside the app’s code is a message – that pops up if you are using an uncertified Android phone – which states. “On March 31, Messages will stop working on uncertified devices, including this one.”
