"We have written to Google on the need for uniform regulations among fintech players, Google says you can't have a lending product which is less than 60 days while all these apps had 7-14 day products", said a member of FACE (Fintech Association for Customer Empowerment), was quoted as saying by ET. Google Messages is also one of the apps that can be easily side-loaded on any smartphone. From there you can swipe other cards to open another app in full-screen mode, and return back to the split-view with two apps running simultaneously whenever you want. In simple words, you don't have to kill the split-screen mode to use another app in full-screen mode once Android 12 arrives. As per a fresh leak though, an upcoming Android 12 feature called "App Pairs" will help with the split-screen multitasking experience to a large extent. This will be useful for supporting rumble in games that were designed for it, which includes many console games that are accessible to mobile players through cloud gaming services like Google's own Stadia, NVIDIA's GeForce NOW, Microsoft's xCloud, and more. Here's hoping that Google is able to merge them in time. An APK teardown has now shown strings that hint that Google Messages will stop working on uncertified Android smartphones by the end of March 2021.


Users of Huawei devices do search for ways to sideloads apps from Google like YouTube, Play Games, Gmail and ofcourse, the Play Store. "Google will add more for package-level hibernation (app is hibernated for all users)", his tweet read.


"Play Protect certified devices go through a rigorous security review and compatibility testing process, performed by Google, to ensure user data and app information are kept safe".
