If a device isn’t certified by Google, it will no longer be able to use Google apps.
Apparently T-Mobile sold me a phone that is not certified by Google. The OnePlus 6T
Google is blocking devices that are not certified by Google.
Which basically means Google doesn’t have a record of the Android compatibility test results.
If you discover one of your apps is not working properly. If you hold down the app until you get options and you select app info. Select advanced options at the bottom, select app details, and get this message "this app isn't compatible with your device anymore, contact the developers for more info"
Google warned that eventually all of their apps including Messages won’t work on uncertified devices after some time.
Or that you cannot even bring up Netflix or Disney plus on the Google app store.
Chances are your phone is on the list of uncertified devices.
Check to see if your phone has been certified with Google play store.
If anybody knows an effective way to get this resolved PLEASE LET ME KNOW!
I've talked to 5 T-Mobile techs and 1-oneplus tech as well as emailing OnePlus.
I seem to know more about the issue than they do. And there response seems to be deny or minimize the issue. Or suggest I give them more money by upgrading to a new phone. Why should I pay up for the negligence?
