We last reported about the issue with Google Messages app making it incompatible with Nokia smartphones. Because of this error there was no impact on the working of the Android messaging app but users were seeing the error message of “app is no longer compatible”.
While Nokia Mobile Twitter account confirmed to us that the issue has been fixed with a new Messages app update, the update was not yet available for users.
Hi @Nokiapoweruser, thank you for your message. Google has now updated the messaging app, please check on your phone.

But now it seems that the Messages update is rolling out to everyone and fixing this compatibility issue as reported by many of our readers. The updated app version that we have received on our Nokia 7.1 is 5.0.062.
