Google has announced that it will end support for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 early next year, with a new Chrome version.
The tech giant will officially end support for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 on February 7, 2023, when Chrome 110 is expected to be released, the company said in a support page.
Users must ensure their device is running Windows 10 or later to continue receiving future Chrome releases.
There will be no new updates for users of these operating systems, but older versions of Chrome will continue to work.
If anyone is still using Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, they are advised to upgrade to a supported version of Windows if they want to continue receiving Chrome’s security updates and new features, the company said.
