Yesterday we told you that some Samsung mobiles would lose access to Google services shortly. Today we update this information and we tell you that all Android phones with said software version they will lose access to Google services. What requirements must a smartphone have to enter this blacklist? Relax, you are probably not affected by the end of support: only devices with Android 2.3 Gingerbread enter the bag. Google has gotten tired of offering support and there is bad news for mobiles with this version.
Say goodbye to Google services if you have Android 2.3 Gingerbread
Google has announced that all mobiles with Android 2.3 Gingerbread will no longer have access to their services as of September 27, 2021. That is, within two months, mobile phones active with this version will close their session in Gmail and will not be able to use the company’s applications in a standard way.
This does not mean that the mobile stops working, but it does mean that you will not have access to the main services that make it work as up to now. You will not be able to access Google Maps, or Gmail or download apps from the Play Store. The installation of applications is complicated and, ultimately, the mobile is no longer a decent Android.
The good news is that Android 2.3 Gingerbread currently has 11 years. This means that there are very few users who are still using a device with this android version. We do not know the real figure, but it is sure that worldwide there are only a few thousand mobile phones.
Google has grown tired of supporting a operating system that is hardly used and, therefore, its support in the services it offers stops. If you have a Android mobile 2.3 you should know that in two months you will not be able to use it as before. Of course, if you have one, it probably has been in a drawer for several years.
