Sms sending and Violations from google

Is it not a good idea to have sms sending or receiving within a app, as Google rejected my app of sms sending, as I am violating their sensitive terms and there are high risks on having such permissions in the app
Any suggestions please,

It is not possible to publish in the Google Play store apps with direct SMS capabilities.
Publish it outside Google Play.

Thank you!!!!

To be clear, you cannot publish to Google Play Store if you are using the SendMessageDirect block (unless you seek specific approval from Google). You should be OK if just using SendMessage, which will ensure the user is directed to the default messaging application to confirm the sending of the message.
