Android has stopped using dessert names since a long time. However, most people who are even rudimentary in Android should be familiar with Gingerbread. Version 2.3.7 is now officially gone.

Android Gingerbread was released for the first time in December 2010. It includes versions with numbers ranging from 2.3 to 2.7. Gingerbread is also well-known because it was the first issue that many smartphone owners came into contact with Google’s mobile OS, which was still in its infancy at the time.

It is possible to still use Android 2.3.x on millions of smartphones, which means that the seventh version of Android was not killed. It is not possible to know how many are still in daily use by non-tech-savvy people, but this is not an isolated case.

Google login is no longer possible

Yesterday’s chapter on gingerbread is officially over. Google has announced in a support article that it won’t be possible for a device running Android 2.3.7 or lower to log into an account with the search engine giant.

Google: “If your device is signed in after September 27, you might get username or password error when you attempt to use Google products like Gmail, YouTube, and Maps.

However, it should be noted that you could not make calls using a gingerbread smartphone for the past several months or years. Android 2.3.x does not support apps or other services, and Gingerbread is a significant security risk.
