Android users who still run Android Nougat on their devices won't be able to upgrade the Google Chrome browser to version 120 on their devices. Google announced the change on its Chrome Enterprise and Education release notes page.
Google writes on the page: "The last version of Chrome that supports Android Nougat is Chrome 119, and it includes a message to affected users informing them to upgrade their operating system. Chrome 120 will not support nor ship to users running Android Nougat".
In other words: Google Chrome 119 is the last version of the mobile browser that will run on Android Nougat devices. Google suggests that affected users upgrade the operating system to a newer version to continue using Chrome and stay protected.
Problem is, Android Nougat is not supported anymore by manufacturers. Released in 2016, Android Nougat was the sevenths major version of the Android operating system. No Android manufacturer offered support for seven years. While some users may be able to upgrade to Android Orea, also known as Android 8, most may be stuck on Android Nougat.
