Starting September 27, Android devices running version 2.3.7 or older will no longer be able to sign in to Google services such as Gmail, YouTube or Maps. It is also no longer possible to create accounts. Google is introducing this measure for security reasons.

If users with Android version 2.3.7 try to log in after September 27 this year, or try to create a new account, they will see an error message according to Google. It is still possible for these devices to log in to a Google account via the web browser and use some services. It is not clear which services these are.

Google recommends users to update their Android devices to a more recent version of the operating system. The oldest version with which you can log in from September 27, or create new accounts with Google services, will then be Android 3.0.
