Avatar Written by Maheen Kanwal ·  42 sec read >

Google will be shutting down the older versions of Google Drive, Docs, Slides and Sheets after April 3, 2017.

The users of older versions of these four applications need to upgrade them to latest versions to ensure uninterrupted service. The version of the apps being shut down are as follows:

  • Google Drive for Android (prior to version 2.4.311)
  • Google Docs for Android (prior to version 1.6.292)
  • Google Sheets for Android (prior to version 1.6.292)
  • Google Slides for Android (prior to version 1.6.292)
  • Google Drive for iOS (prior to version 4.16)
  • Google Docs for iOS (prior to version 1.2016.12204)
  • Google Sheets for iOS (prior to version 1.2016.12208)
  • Google Slides for iOS (prior to version 1.2016.12203)

This will affect the users on Android and iOS, and targets versions of the apps released before Nougat and iOS 10 made their respective debuts.The users will begin to see the alerts on March 1 warning them that the version they are using is too old and no longer supported. Also, some users with very old versions will be forced to upgrade when they receive the notification.

Most of the users are already using the upgraded versions of these apps but those who have older versions are advised to upgrade before April 3, 2017.
