Gingerbread won’t be the main form getting cut off from Google Play Services bolster, as Google notes on the Android Developers Blog that the base Support API level is being knock up from 9 to 14, which is Android 4.0.1 Ice Cream Sandwich. This implies Android Honeycomb, which is adaptation 3.0, will likewise lose bolster for Google Play Services once form 10.2 hits the scene. As expressed above Google does not say a correct time allotment for this change, however they do specify that it will happen at some point in mid 2017, so it could come in January or it could be a tiny bit later.
