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



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.
