But users must be able to sign in to Gmail, Google Search, Google Drive, YouTube and other Google services through their phone’s browser.

On phones running Android 2.3.7 and lower since September 27, users will see a “username or password error” when they try to sign in to any Google apps they’ve loaded. This email may be seen as a warning to some users. which are still older software versions. These users are urged to update software or switch phones.
The app will not work even after a factory reset
The report says that after September 27, users of older Android versions will see an error when they try to sign in to Google products and services, such as Gmail, YouTube, and Maps. If users try to factory reset by signing up for a new Google account or a new phone, they will still see the same error on their phone screen. Users will see this error even after creating a new password and logging in again.
