Google pulling off Sign-in support from Android 2.3.7 or lower

Google is about to unveil their Android 12 stable version for everyone after three beta versions. We’ve also seen Google updating their apps like Google Contacts to support the all-new Materia You UI.

However, Google is not being a nice guy to everyone. They have started notifying Android 2.3.7 or lower users that they are pulling off Sign-in support from their devices. It means that Android 2.3.7 or lower users won’t be able to log in to their Google accounts. The update will be starting in late September 2021.

Android Community Manager, Zak Pollack said that Google will not allow sign-in on Android 2.3.7 or lower devices after September 27. He stated that “If you sign in to 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 means that the Google app will stop supporting Android 2.3.7 after September 27, 2021.

Android 2.3.7 or lower users started receiving the following mail with the link to the Android Community post by Zak Pollack.

Now, if you are one of the users of Android 2.3.7 or lower versions, you won’t be able to do the following things after 27 September 2021:

  1. Sign in to Google services and products such as Gmail, YouTube, and Maps.
  2. Add a new Google Account or create a new one.
  3. Perform a factory reset and then attempt to sign in.
