Google is removing support for Google Maps, YouTube, Gmail and other apps from a handful of Android devices later this month, Report informs referring to The Sun.
The US tech giant plans to block users from signing in with their Google Account on devices using Android 2.3 from Sept. 27. That’s because older versions of operating systems are far more vulnerable to bugs and hackers.
Later this month, anyone using a device running the software will find that they're unable to log in to their Google account. They’ll receive a username and password error, even if they've plugged in the correct credentials. Trying to add a Google Calendar or Gmail account to the settings menu of the device will result in the same error. Other popular Google apps will also stop working, including YouTube, Google Play Store, Google Maps, Gmail, Google Calendar, and more.
The ageing version of Google’s operating system was launched in December 2010.
