Google officially abandoned Android 2.3.7: account will not be able to log in

In December 2010, Google released the smartphone operating system Android 2.3. In February 2017, the new version 10.2 of the Android payment service Google Pay canceled support for Android 2.3. Now, Google will officially abandon the system.

According to foreign media reports, Google recently issued a statement stating that Google accounts will not be allowed to log in on Android devices running Android 2.3.7 or lower.


According to Google, from September 27, 2021, Google will no longer allow login on Android devices running Android 2.3.7 or lower, and can only log in on Android version 3.0 or higher.

When users try to log in to Android devices with Android 2.3.7 or lower after September 27, if they use Google products and services such as Gmail, YouTube, and Maps, user name or password errors may occur.

If the device cannot be updated to Android version 3.0 or above, the user can try to log in to the Google account on the device’s web browser. After successfully logging in, you can still use some Google services.


It is understood that in the early morning of December 7, 2010, Beijing time, Google officially released the smartphone operating system Android 2.3, which is also known as the Android Gingerbread system.

As the seventh version of Android, Android Gingerbread is also one of the most iconic versions in the history of the platform, because it is the first version to fully launch the annual update plan. This version lasted for a full 10 months when it was usually 3 months.
