Huawei smartphones will lose another Google service. Google Duo will stop working on “uncertified” Android in spring

Published

on

Google will block the possibility of using another of its services on smartphones that could not obtain a Google Mobile Services (GMS) license. Among such smartphones, the most prominent are, of course, the many Huawei and Honor models released since the end of 2019.

Evidence of the imminent disconnection of such smartphones from Google Duo video chat was found in the code of the latest update of the Google Duo application version 123.

At the moment, Google Duo can be safely used on smartphones without GMS certification, including Huawei with Honor. However, Google will close this loophole in the spring.

A few days earlier it also became known that Google Messages (Google Messages) will stop working on “uncertified” Android smartphones from March 31, 2021.

At first, a vague wording was found in the Google Duo code – the service will stop working on “unsupported” devices.

However, enthusiasts of the XDA Developers community of mobile developers did not rest on this and found more accurate information in the code. We are talking about devices “compatible” with GMS, in other words, licensed by Google. The date of the complete cessation of work is the same – March 31st. Users will be given 14 days to download their data.

It is worth noting that the Viva Magenta color has never been seen in smartphones before. Motorola’s novelty in this color, unfortunately, will be exclusive to the US market, but the company may well release its new flagship in the same color. It is also worth noting that the specified version of the smartphone will come with Moto Buds 600 ANC TWS headphones. True, the headphones will be of a different color, but even here Motorola decided to approach the issue from an unusual angle. The fact is that the headphones will be painted in Winetasting color, which was chosen by Pantone as an addition to Viva Magenta.

Lost in Alaska iPhone 14s satellite SOS feature helped save

Recently, the Alaska State Police received a message about a man stuck in the snow between the cities of Nurvik and Kotzebue. This is a remote area above the Arctic Circle where there is no cell service, so the man had to activate the emergency satellite service on his iPhone 14 to call for help. The Apple Emergency Response Center, along with local search and rescue teams and the US Arctic Northwest Rescue Coordinator, sent volunteer searchers to GPS coordinates transmitted by a smartphone. Rescuers arrived at the scene and successfully helped the stranded man, fortunately he was not injured.

It is worth noting that Apple honestly warns users about possible failures in the operation of satellite communications in some places above the 62nd parallel of the north latitude. Nurvik and Kotzebue are already closer to the 69th parallel of the northern latitude, but nevertheless, the “satellite SOS” worked perfectly: the rescuers were impressed by the accuracy and completeness of the information provided. Recall that an emergency message via satellite on the iPhone 14 includes not only coordinates, but also a small questionnaire, by filling out which the victim can briefly report what happened and what help he needs. This makes it easier for the rescue services. In mid-November, the function started working in the US and Canada, it will be available for free for two years, Apple has not yet announced anything about its cost in the future. The service should be launched in some European countries soon.

This is useful for enhancing protection. According to Samsung itself, this solution is 2.5 billion times safer than using a single fingerprint. In addition, Samsung’s new screens will be able to scan fingerprints across their entire area, which will make the use of such scanners simply more convenient.

ISORG has announced that its own OPD (Organic Photo Diode) multi-fingerprint scanning technology is ready. The company believes that Samsung is likely to use similar materials and processes for its OLED 2.0 all-in-one fingerprint scanner.

The head of ISORG believes that Samsung can release relevant products as early as 2025. That is, perhaps such scanners will receive the flagship smartphones of the Galaxy S25 line.
