    Oh, good point! Not having that rule, it never entered my mind. Thank you! That makes a lot of sense.

    this is true, but there was a way around it. not counting those who sneak in their phones, you could always text or receive text through email.

    Just FYI...for anyone that wants to try version 3.3.044 from APK Mirror. It still doesn't have the new option. I picked the exact same version number that is on my wife's phone and installed it. Nope, no new option. There is obviously a difference in the update through the Play Store vs the APK files on APK Mirror. Just wanted to save someone the headache if they were thinking about it. Just wait for the Play Store.

    I would never trust downloads from a third party site. you never really know what is really included or not included with the apk. there is no real security.

    I trust APK Mirror. They are very reputable. I have had no major issues with installing any apps from there. Sure, I picked the wrong version once and had a hard time uninstalling it. That was my fault, not theirs. Their site is safe. Many Moderators, IT professionals and developers recommend their site. I was only posting to save others time that might have thought they could get the new update early, not as a safety warning. I would never mention site that I felt was unsafe.

    maybe it is but both times you said you used it the first time it was a wrong version and the second time it was the right version but did not have all the features of that version. so in the end, it would be better just to wait for the play store than have that frustration .

    I agree, and that's why I posted here. To save others any frustration. I still feel it's a safe site and would install an APK from them again, and would recommend the same to others.

    My work phone (Droid Turbo 2) just received the app update, and it's on Verizon. So this definitely is rolling out for Verizon phones.

    Check your app, I just got the option to use the web. And I'm using the app from Apkmirror. So it seems to be rolling out.
