Google’s Big Change! Youtube, Gmail will not Support on these Android Smartphones After September 27


There is bad news for the users of Android phones. This is because Google will no longer offer sign-in support on Android phones running version 2.3.7 or lower. From an email sent by Google to users, it has been learned that this change will be implemented from September 27. Older phone users have been advised to update to at least Android 3.0 Honeycomb to continue using Google apps beyond September. This will affect the system and app-level sign-in, but users should be able to sign in to Gmail, Google Search, Google Drive, YouTube, and other Google services through their phone’s browser.

In its report, 9to5Google shared a screenshot of an email sent to users who are likely to be affected by the change. There are very few such users who are using very old versions of Android. Google is making this change for the account security and data security of the users.

Starting September 27, users on phones running Android version 2.3.7 and lower will see a ‘username or password error’ whenever they try to sign-in to any of the Google apps loaded.

This email may be seen as a warning sign to some of these users who are still using older software versions. Such users are being urged to update the software or switch phones.

The report said that after September 27, users of older Android versions will see an error when they try to sign in to Google products and services such as Gmail, YouTube and Maps. If users try to sign in again by creating a new Google account or factory resetting the phone, they will still see the same error on their phone screen. This error will continue to be visible to users even after creating a new password, and signing in again.

If seen, after September 27, phone users with Android version 2.3.7 or lower will not be left with any workaround, so that they can use Google apps and services. Therefore, it is better that before this, users should search for a new phone for themselves.
