I'm sure you've heard about Google Play Services. In practice, they are those services that were talked about so much in the matter between Huawei and the United States and that the Chinese giant lost. Pray beyond the Huawei there are others smartphones who will lose access to the Play Store. In practice Google will cut support for Google Play Services on older smartphones. Now, with support coming to an end, several services also end up not working. But let's then look at Android smartphones that will lose access to the Play Store.
But how many Android smartphones will lose access to the Play Store?
I'll explain. All this started when Google decided to announce on its official blog that it will no longer support Google Play Services, on smartphones running Android Jelly Bean. In other words, this covers equipment between version 4.1 and 4.3. The search engine giant claimed that this was because Jelly Bean now represents less than 1% of the Android universe. In fact, the utilization rate stands at 0.7%.
So the last release for this platform will be the Play Services v21.30.99 that arrives in August. After that it was over.
I remember that the first version of Android Jelly Bean (4.1) was released in July 2012. That said, it arrived with many new features that deserved a lot of attention at the time. I'm talking about expandable notifications, USB audio and a better interface.
Meanwhile Android 4.2 version arrived in November 2012. The main improvements in this version were an improved lock screen and support for multiple user accounts. Finally, Android 4.3 was released in July 2013 and arrived with Bluetooth LE and a new camera app.
Is ending support for these services the end of the world?
No, because only 0.7% of people still use this version. In addition, you should no longer be able to run multiple applications which are available on the Play Store. In any case, it is obvious that someone will always be upset.
