Google has announced that Google Play Services will stop supporting Android Jelly Bean after August 2021.
Android Jelly Bean was originally released in 2012, making it some nine years old. As such, Jelly Bean only accounts for less than 1% of the installed Android user base.
Google is now preparing to discontinue Play Services support for the older version of Android, with the last update being version 21.30.99 of the Services APK, scheduled for the end of August.
While no one likes to see support for their OS being dropped, it’s not surprising Google is ending support for Jelly Bean after nearly a decade.
