It looks like Google wants to get more people up on their updated versions of Google Drive. The company has started notifying users of legacy versions of their office suite apps — including Drive, Docs, Sheets, and Slides through the G Suite — that they will be prompting them to move over to the latest versions of the app.

Google says these versions of the app will be shuttered:

  • 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)

Google also says that a subset of very old versions will also be shut down March 1st. If, for whatever reason, you haven’t been able to pull yourself away from these old versions, it’s a good idea to pull away now and get acclimated with something newer as it’s become inevitable.
