Version 2.3.7 or older will end Google support for Android phones. From September 27, Google has notified users via email that they will no longer be able to sign into Google App on their devices. In the email, users are advised to update the phone to at least Android 3.0 to avoid any inconvenience.
This decision by Google means that if you have an Android device with Android version 184.108.40.206 or older, then after September 27, your device will be installed, including Gmail, Google Search, Google Drive and YouTube. No Google App works. 9to5Google also shares a screenshot of an email sent to users.

Why Google is doing this
According to Google, such users will see ‘username and password error’ whenever they try to sign into Google Apps on their devices after September 27. However, the number of users who use older versions of Android is very low. Google has taken this action to protect user data and to maintain account security.

Google says that if users try to add or create a new Google account or reset a factory, they will still get the error. Also, if they try to change their Google Account password, they will still get the error and the account will be signed out of all devices. Also, the username and password error will appear even if the user tries to remove the account from the device and add it again.
