it is now more than five years ago we said goodbye to Android Market to receive with open arms to Google Play, but that did not happen with all versions of the operating system. Versions prior to Android 2.2 Froyo don’t received the Play Store and now in a few days it will be definitely without any apps store.
the Android Market has its days numbered. Google has announced that the next June 30 will no longer support this store, so that the few devices with Android 2.1 Eclair or earlier versions will no longer be able to download or buy apps from this ancient store.
The end of support of Android Market will affect very few users, less than 0.1% of devices have any of these versions already so old. the Android 2.1 Eclair was released seven years ago, so that Google’s decision is entirely reasonable.
Android Market came in October 2008 with the launch of the first Android device, the T-Mobile G1, and for four years was the app store’s official operating system of Google. Then in 2012 it was replaced by Google Play, a store is available starting with Android 2.2 Froyo.
