By the appointed date, users of older Android versions will encounter a message saying that the username or password is wrong when the user tries to access any of the Google services, add or create an account, or try to log in with a Google account on any phone that works with one Old version, or trying to change your Google account password on an old Android phone.
Google indicated that users of old Android phones will still be able to use its services via Internet browsers from their phones, with the exception of Google Chrome, but it advises them to update their phones to new versions or buy phones that support newer versions of Android 2.3.7.
