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. – Robert Aug 29 '18 at 15:00

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.
