According to the trend set by the Google Messages application, it seems that Google Duo may soon stop running on uncertified Android devices.
About APK Insight: In this “APK Insight” article, we have decompiled the latest version of the app uploaded by Google to the Play Store. When we decompile these files (called APK in the case of Android applications), we can see that various lines of code hint at possible future functions. Please keep in mind that Google may or may not release these features, and our interpretation of their meaning may not be complete. However, we will try to make those products that are about to be completed show you how they look when they are delivered. With this in mind, please keep reading.
Uncertified Android device
Earlier this week, the update to the Google Messages app included a notice stating that the app will stop running on “uncertified”
For ordinary people who only buy well-known phones from carriers or retailers, the chance of encountering uncertified devices is very small. In other words, a well-known example is that recent Huawei equipment has not been certified for Play Services.
The latest update of Google Duo (version 123, now available through the Play Store) contains notifications similar to those included in Google Messages.
The two are leaving soon.
Since the device you are using is not supported, Duo will log out of your account on this device soon. Download your clips and call logs to avoid losing them.
The wording is different, referring to “unsupported devices” rather than “uncertified” Android devices, but a quick glance at the code of the Google Duo application reveals that it is indeed related to “GmsCompliance”.
In short, if your Android phone is not properly certified to use Google Play services, you may soon lose the ability to make and receive Google Duo calls. Unlike the Google Messages notification specified on March 31, Google Duo will not be shared when it happens to stop working on the affected device.
