Google has informed that Android smartphones and other devices which run on Android 2.3.7 or older OS, won’t be able to sign into apps created by Google. According to 91Mobiles, Android devices which are supported by the Gingerbread or older Android OS won’t be able to use Google apps such as Gmail, Youtube & Keep, after 27th September, 2021.
The users of such Android devices will still be able to use websites to access the service of the google apps, after 27th September, 2021.
“As part of our ongoing efforts to keep our users safe, Google will no longer allow sign-in on Android devices that run Android 2.3.7 or lower starting September 27, 2021,” Google informed. “If you sign into your device after September 27, you may get username or password errors when you try to use Google products and services like Gmail, YouTube, and Maps” it further added.
Google plans to ensure the account privacy and security of its users by preventing older devices from signing into Google Apps. According to report, only a small fraction of people are going to be affected by this decision, as Android Gingerbread Smartphones are used by only a tiny group of people, which are grouped together in ‘others’ category in the list of Android OS.
