Google will cease to support Android 4.4 (KitKat) by August 2023

Android 4.4 or also known as KitKat has been existing since 2013. Now the support for its Google Play Services will end by August 2023

Android KitKat is no longer supported by Google by August 2023

Android KitKat, which was released in 2013, was a popular version of Android. However, as of May 2023, only about 15 million devices were still using KitKat. This represents a very small percentage of the global Android user base, so Google has decided to stop supporting KitKat in future releases of Google Play services.

This means that devices running KitKat will no longer receive security updates or bug fixes. They will also be unable to run newer versions of Android apps, which may cause them to become buggy or unusable.

If you are still using a device running KitKat, you should consider upgrading to a newer version of Android. This will ensure that you continue to receive security updates and bug fixes, and that you can run the latest Android apps.

Here are some of the risks of continuing to use a KitKat device:

  • Your device may become more vulnerable to security threats.
  • You may not be able to run the latest apps.
  • Your device may become slower and less responsive.

If you are considering upgrading, here are some things to keep in mind:

  • You can check your device’s current version of Android by going to Settings > System > Advanced > System update.
  • You can find out more about upgrading your device by visiting the manufacturer’s website or contacting their customer support.

Upgrading to a newer version of Android is a good way to ensure that your device remains secure and up-to-date. It can also help to improve your device’s performance and extend its lifespan.
