Google announced today that the Google Chrome web browser will likely drop support for Windows 7 and 8.1 starting February 2023.
After support is discontinued for these two Windows versions, the company says Chrome users must ensure that their devices are running at least Windows 10.
"With the release of Chrome 110 (tentatively scheduled for February 7th, 2023), we'll officially end support for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1," Google Chrome Support Manager revealed.
"You'll need to ensure your device is running Windows 10 or later to continue receiving future Chrome releases."
Google's decision to drop support for these platforms matches Microsoft's Windows lifecycle policy, which lists the Extended Security Update (ESU) program for Windows 7 and the Windows 8.1 end of support on January 10, 2023.
