Google Calendar to Discontinue Support for Android 7.1: Google said earlier this month that Chrome version 119 for Android will be the last version that phones running Android 7 (Nougat) or lower will be able to use.
Google Calendar to Discontinue Support for Android 7.1 and Below
The news affected both Chrome for Android and Chrome for desktop. Chrome 120 doesn’t work with Android Nougat or a lower version of Android because of this. The company has now chosen to do the same thing with Google Calendar, a well-known program that millions of people use to plan their daily lives. They let users set up events, make notes, and plan talks.
There is no longer any support for older versions of Android. This is most likely for security reasons. Older versions of Android are easier to hack and steal data from, so Google wants to make sure its customers are safe.
A new flag called “UnsupportedOperatingSystem__enabled” is added to the latest version of the Google Calendar app (v2023.46.0-581792699-release). This flag tells the app what kind of operating system the user is using and shows them a message.
This flag has a special message that tells users that their device needs to be updated to at least Android 8 (Oreo) in order to keep using Google Calendar.
Also, newer versions of Android have a lot of new features and improvements that older versions didn’t have. Because of this, Google is telling people to make sure they have the latest version of Android on their devices.
