When using iMessage, what is the reason why the messages might suddenly convert to text messages?

when I text my niece we're always using iMessage... then suddenly the chat bubbles change from blue to green and the fine print started saying "sent as text message" this is the first time I've seen this.. what's the reason?

Makes sense, she went to stay at a friends house out in the country and that's when it changed. Thanks!

I have no idea, does it still send the message?

Yes, the messages are still sent and received just like any other text you'd send, but the iMessage features aren't available
