Custom ROM in Redmi 3S I have installed Gapps(from opengapps) using TWRP recovery. Recently, I got an update from play store for dialer app, but not for messages which released recently. Why message app doesn't received update? Do I need to flash latest Gapps to get this?

  • It can happen that Google Play does not recognize an installed system app and therefore does not update it. Open the app info page in the PlayStore app and perform a manual update. Afterwards this app will be updated automatically when the next update is published.

Google distributes updates in waves (based on geographical location etc.) to balance load so that may be a reason for you not getting an update right away. Additionally updates depend on your phone android version, architecture (arm vs x86, 32-bit or 64-bit) and screen resolution so that may also be a factor in getting or not getting an app update. As of now you can see all released versions of the messaging app from google on the APKMirror website:


and manually sideload the appropriate version based on your phone's specs.
