There are some apps that are purely developed for only Google Pixel devices. These apps not only improves the functionality but even adds value to the devices. Google’s refined software and impressive applications always remain favorite among the third-party development community. Several Pixel-based Mods are made available for non-Pixel devices. An example is, Google Camera, aka Gcam Mod, is quite popular among photography enthusiasts. Similarly, Pixel phone-based themes and boot animations are also quite popular among non-Pixel users.
In a way forward, the search giant has surprisingly made the Google Phone app available on the Play Store for non-Pixel devices. Before now, the Google Phone app was limited to Pixel and Android One smartphones. The users needed to root the device to use the modified apk or Magisk Module on their respective devices. But the users can now directly use the Google Phone app on a non-Pixel phone by directly installing it from the Play Store.

According to research done by our folks at XDA Developers, the Google Phone App is currently compatible with specific devices that have com.google.android.dialer.support shared library support. However, the above saying is not confirmed by any official source, but it seems a legit reason behind the app compatibility. You can check the smartphone compatibility by running the ADB command on CMD after connecting via USB cable:
