1 : Wow, just wow google, disabling this app has increased my phone's battery life threefold. It's just malware and you should disable it. It's only "use" is a gateway for certain things, such as discord invites from external links. The thing is, all other phone types can do this without an external app, such as apple. Useless bit of malware built into your phone with no real purpose.

2 : Continuous updates and very little improvment to show for it. After 20 updates we finally have HD calling that is a little more reliable. Has potential but I wonder if enough conversations are being had with network providers or whether Google is trying to create the best fit ? All this app has achieved so far is to push users away from Google and toward other providers. This must have been reserved for the 'failed to graduate' team. Presumably Google felt sorry for them.

1 : Misterious "bug fixes" every 3 days. Android permissions use & abuse. Battery use and abuse. When a single company is able to generate so much damage to so many consumers and get away with it, that means Google has become a monopoly and is, without a question, abusing it's dominant position. Microsoft was harrased and fined billions of dollars for A BROWSER. Yet, Google is free to do whatever they like. The US (or any govt) are just not there. Money talks. Welcome to the 21st century.

1 : There is a problem with this app preventing SMS text messages from being received or sent. It appears to impact all devices that run android and all phone carriers. Although updates are regularly offered, the services seem to fail shortly afterwards. Toggling your sim card on/off/on seems to help also, but this is very annoying and we should not have to do this.

1 : STILL: With 4 bars, phone calls sound like the other person is underwater! Any basic text, msm, etc says "waiting for connection." -"NOT SENT" now also says "waiting for recipients phone to be online." WHAT?? Really ticked off. I keep my data OFF to save the battery. Also, my texts don't get received if the person has their phone off or their data off. This did NOT FIX BUGS AND INSTABILITY, IT CREATED THEM. Fix this now!

1 : Please fix the issue of delayed sms. These basic services of a phone and Google doesn't even care to fix the issue. When you can't do it properly why would you restrict the OEMs from taking care of the call and messaging app and make Google phone and messages compulsory. Please fix it ASAP. I'm using Redmi Note 10 pro.

1 : Need to fix this now ! Suddenly can't get pics sent through messages. Yesterday, they literally changed the settings to "disable' , where you pick how much MB can be downloaded to messages. Most people have it set to default which was 105 mb, it was changed to disable'. Today it is back to 105 mb. Also not sending or receiving messages today.

2 : Impacts reading of messages in vehicle infotainment system. Even after switching from the Verizon Messaging App to Google Messages, I am unable to access SMS messages on my 2011 Ford Sync 2 system that were previously accessable; getting a dialog box saying this phone is incompatible. This used to work but not now. Why is that? I've got a screen shot showing the failure dialog box and an onscreen indicator of pending messages that cannot be displayed. The MotoZ Bluetooth options are all set on.

1 : I'm having to text this on my phone instead of my Samsung device I got back in 2016. The fact that this software spams and almost purposefully crashes apps like the play store, chrome Google etc is ticking me off. I tried to do the good old uninstall update trick but that doesn't work either. I found it so sad that such a large cooperate can be so lasy. Hope you fix this for both phone and tablet users.

1 : Trying to activate chat features on my S21 but keep getting an error message within samsung messages saying Registration Failed and Google messages just keeps saying its trying to verify my number. Not happy! It's very disappointing considering I've been a Samsung user for years. This needs to be sorted out asap!!!

FAQs & Tutorials

Q: What is an .APK File?

A: An Android Package Kit (APK for short) is the package file format used by the Android operating system for distribution and installation of mobile applications. Just like Windows (PC) systems use an .exe file for installing software, Android does the same.

Q: What is an .XAPK File?

A: XAPK is a zip format standard that includes Android App Bundles or APK files (installation packages), along with OBB, cache assets, and other data files. This format ensures that an app is downloaded and runs successfully on Android devices. Due to the Google Play Store's limitation on app file sizes, developers often use the XAPK file format for apps larger than 100MB. This approach allows users to download APK files on Android without experiencing corruption issues.

Q: How to install .APK File?

Installing APK files on Android devices is straightforward. Here's a step-by-step guide:

  1. Download the APK File: Download the APK file from this website and save it in an easy-to-find location, such as your device's 'Downloads' folder.
  2. Open and Install the APK File: Locate and open the APK file you just downloaded. A prompt will appear asking for your confirmation to install the app. Tap "Install" to proceed with the installation.
  3. Complete Installation and Launch the App: Wait for the installation process to complete. Once installed, you can open the app directly or find it in your app drawer.

Q: How to install .XAPK File?

To install an XAPK file, you need to use the Split APKs Installer (SAI) application. Here's how to do it:

  1. Install SAI: Download and install the Split APKs Installer (SAI) app. The installation process is similar to that of any regular APK file.
  2. Install the XAPK:
    - Open the Split APKs Installer (SAI) on your device.
    - In SAI, tap on the 'Install APKs/XAPK' button.
    - Navigate to the folder where you saved the downloaded XAPK file.
    - Select the XAPK file you wish to install and proceed.
  3. Complete the Installation: Follow the on-screen instructions within SAI to complete the installation process. Once the installation is finished, the app will be available in your app drawer for use.
