Yes! For people who have been using the same phone for many years, now is the time to buy a new phone because users are deprived of important apps by Google.
Google has announced that from September 27, Google’s popular apps YouTube, Google Play Store, Google Maps, Gmail, and others, will not work in Android 2.3 and Ginger version.
To use these apps, you will need to upgrade to Android 3.0 since older Android phones do not have operating system upgrades, or you need to get a phone.
Android 2.3 or Android Gingerbread was introduced in December 2010 and is now obsolete 11 years later.
Note that the support for this version of Android has already been removed from WhatsApp.
It is difficult to say how many phones will be affected by Google’s decision. Still, it is estimated that there are currently more than 3 billion Android devices operating around the world, so many people could be affected by this change.
