Google is ending support for signing into its app on Android 2.3.7 and below (via 9to5Google). The announcement was made through email to all the users who are still actively using these Android versions. Google stated that "signing in to your account on Google apps will no longer be supported." Android versions below version 2.3.7 are: Android 1.0 Android 1.1 Android 1.5 Cupcake Android 1.6 Donut Android 2.0 Eclair Android 2.2 Froyo Android 2.3 Gingerbread The company says that the change will only impact system and application-level sign-ins and will not affect web browsers. This means that users will no longer be able to sign in to apps like YouTube, Gmail, Google Drive, and other apps that need a Google account. Users will only be able to sign into their accounts with Android versions 3.0 or newer.
In a recent blog post, Drew Rowny, Google’s Product Lead, Messages, has shared the tech giant’s future plans. As revealed, Google is rolling out the end-to-end encryption feature to its Messages app. The Messages by Google is one of the popular Android apps among users for general communication. It is also often available as the default pre-installed messaging app in the latest Android phones. However, despite being popular, it still lagged behind other instant messaging apps like WhatsApp and Signal as it lacks key features such as end-to-end encryption. Nonetheless, Google now gears up to compete with other apps with its plans to roll out e2e encryption to Messages. This feature will ensure superior privacy to the users’ chats.
