JAKARTA - Google will stop supporting devices running Android 2.3.7 (Gingerbread) or lower starting September 27.

"As part of our ongoing efforts to keep our users safe, Google will no longer allow sign-in on Android devices running Android 2.3.7 or lower starting September 27, 2021", Google said in a statement.

"If you're signed in to your device after September 27, you may get username or password errors when you try to use Google products and services such as Gmail, YouTube, and Maps".

The device details include Android 1.0, 1.1 (unnamed), 1.5 Cupcake, 1.6 Donut, 2.0 Eclair, 2.2 Froyo, and 2.3 Gingerbread. They can no longer sign in to Google apps like Gmail, YouTube, Play Store, and Drive.

The company claims that this is done to protect user account privacy. To continue Google services, users must upgrade to Android 3.0 or higher.

Android 2.3.7 was released almost 10 years ago. But given that there are more than three billion active Android devices in the world, this change is likely to affect more than a few people who may still stick to the old technology.

If anyone is still using Android 2.3.7 or earlier after September 27, they can still use some Google services via the browser on the device.
