In Android, almost every component that is visible to the user is replaceable- this also applies to the app, which enables a basic function of the device: the phone app. Almost every manufacturer has its own phone app and even Google has had its own phone app for many years, which was actually only offered exclusively for their own devices – but that now seems to be changing. The Google phone app can now be installed on some other smartphones.
The Google Phone app isn’t so exciting, but it does contain some additional features that some users may miss in their standard app. The app has been able to be installed and used on many other smartphones outside the Google universe since Friday.
It is worth to mention that not all smartphones are able to install the app, Samsung and OnePlus phone are currently a major exception. But, They could get this privilege soon. To check whether your smartphone is compatible, simply try downloading and installing the app from the Play Store.
