Google Maps, Gmail and YouTube Will Be Blocked on Millions of Phones


The world’s largest search engine Google (Google), is going to do this in the next few days, which you probably would not have even imagined. Google is going to shut down its most popular services. From September 27, some of Google’s services like Google Maps, YouTube and Gmail will not work on some Android devices. Let us tell you that these are some of the benefits of Google used by many people all over the world.

Google has announced a deadline on its website. According to this deadline, users will have to update their phones or get a new mobile phone. This decision of Google is going to have an impact on millions of Android users around the world.

What Google said

Google has said that users who are still using Google Account on Android 2.3 devices will be blocked. This outdated version of Google was launched in December 2010. It has been said from Google that it is withdrawing support for this platform. The company believes that this decision has been taken to keep the users safe. Google often removes outdated versions of Android software and launches a newer version in its place.


Why was this step taken?

Google does this because older versions are more prone to bugs and hackers. The latest version of Android Android 11 is the most advanced version available today for Android smartphones. In February 2017, Google suspended Google Pay how this service was suspended for users using Android 2.3. This month, whoever is operating the device with the help of this software, will be difficult for them to log in to the Google account.

Threats to other apps too

Users using 2.3 will get notifications related to username and wrong password. Even if they have added the correct login id and password, they will not be able to log in even after a valid id and password. If they add Google Calendar or Gmail account to this version, they will have to face the same problem. Along with this, other popular Google apps like YouTube, Google Play Store, Gmail, Google Calendar and other Google apps will also be closed. To use these apps, you have to upgrade your phone to Android 3.0.
