Google is all set to discontinue its support with two Android OS, which are Gingerbread and Honeycomb. Google has announced that there will be no support of Google Play Service for Gingerbread and Honeycomb Android versions.
As Google is all set to discontinue Google Play service support for the Gingerbread and Honeycomb, Android app developers have to continue with minimum support from Android version 4.0.1 ice cream sandwich. Google has confirmed that the current version 10.0.0 of Google Play service is the last one for the Android versions and the next version of Google Play service will not support for these two versions.
If you are not familiar with the Google Play service, then I will give you a small introduction about it. The Play Services offers a set of software libraries to the developer, to add features to the app. With the new move by Google, there will be no new libraries will be available for the app.
The exact reason behind the discontinue of support is unknown, but the two old versions of Android has very less number users. In the latest Android distribution shown that. In the Google Play Store there is already many apps which doesn’t supports to the older versions of Android. So, maybe these are the reasons behind this move by Google.
