Google will soon stop updating Play Services for phones running Android Jelly Bean Ė this covers all three versions, 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3 (API version 16 through 18, respectively). The lifeline hasnít been cut yet, JB phones will receive one last update with version 21.30.99, which is scheduled fore release at the end of August.

Jelly Bean was first announced in 2012, nine years ago. It brought major improvements such a Project Butter, which made the UI run smoothly (with vsync at 60 Hz). Other major additions include Google Now, the now-deprecated Android Beam, expandable notifications and the ability to mute notifications from individual apps, along with a number of audio improvements (AAC support, gap-less playback, multi-channel audio, USB audio for external DACs).

Android 4.2 came later that year, 4.3 arrived in 2013, both kept the Jelly Bean name. All three versions of JB account for less than 1% of active Android devices and Google isnít convinced that these are actually in use. Either way, it will end support for these Android versions, which will lighten the load of its development team (older versions require a lot of special-case handling).

App developers are encouraged to also drop support for Jelly Bean. If they set their apps to target API version 19+ (Android 4.4 KitKat), JB phones will still be able to install older versions of the app, but they will not see newer versions.

However, if an app has a significant portion of its user base that is still on JB, developers can upload multiple APKs to the Play Store so that even Android 4.1-4.3 devices can continue receiving app updates.
