Google drops its support for Android Gingerbread 2.3 on Google Play Services marking the end of one of the best operating system.
Nothing is infinite and lasting, and everything ends sooner or later with the need for a breath of fresh air, and this is applicable in all aspects of life. Also in mobile telephony it is the same, which has always been characterized by a product renewal and a technology breakthrough almost every year. Google well knows about this and now has decided to not support older version of Android on Google Play Store.
Official data reflect the low percentage use of the latest operating systems, except for Lollipop, as Marshmallow for example, which has been very little used. And not satisfied with that data, those of Mountain View decided to launch Android 7.0 Nougat, to leave another pile of terminals in the lurch.
Due to this acceleration in Android update, Google needs to retire the first operating systems that have already been obsolete and almost no one uses, and the first system that was the most popular of the Android era in running out of support was Android 2.2 Froyo. It was a one of the most revolutionary layers for its many novelties in functions and design. It is no longer just Google, but different applications like WhatsApp whose updates are very frequent have also decided to banish versions as old as the one named 2.2 or 2.1.
Well this time, it seems that it has been the turn to one of the best versions and the most used by Android users, and that is none other than the Android version 2.3 Gingerbread. It was a version that I personally loved at the time and that worked very well. Currently only 1% of users use this version, so they has decided not to give more support from version 10.2.x of Google Play Services
