Currently, Google Play Store is a home for more than 2.2 million of apps and almost hundreds of apps join the family every week. Android users have densely occupied the smartphones and contribute the major portion of the smartphone holders. In the last five years, it's only because of cheap Android smartphones that almost everyone has the connectivity to the internet. Android phones played a very cardinal role in the transformation of the world into a digital driven system.

Almost 7 years back Google launched the Android Platform ;’Eclair’ or Android 2.1, the world has evolved since then. Technology has taken over the business and every sector but somewhere, in the beginning, its Android phones which rooted the evolution. Now the tech giant has decided to kill the Android version 2.1 and lower by not providing any support. According to the statement directly from Google, on June 30 the company will be ending the support of the Android market app on Android 2.1 Eclair and the prior devices.

The users won't be able to access or install any Android apps from the App market on these versions from June 30 onwards. The action will take place without any notification to the users due to the Technical restriction in the original Android Application Market.

Now the users are using the Nougat version which is the latest and eagerly waiting for the Android O. Most of the developers are no longer supporting the Eclair or below so there is no point in continuing it. Google also mentioned that it will keep supporting the Android Version 2.2 and above as long as it is feasible.

There is no doubt Android rule the market when it comes to the quantity, however, Apple is all time revenue generating machine. It's time to say goodbye to the Android 2.2 and below so in case you are using one, you won't be able to use anymore from June 30th.
