It’s been almost a year since the Windows 7 operating system has hit EOL, and a number of improvements have come in terms of what programmes can and will no longer support it.
Windows 7 users need to upgrade by 2022
Google currently has almost 3 billion users, and a few million do use Windows 7, either in the unsupported version or in the EOS version.
Whatever the case might be, you will need to update to Windows 10 by January 2022 if you still want to use the new versions of Google Chrome.
Chrome is extending our support for Windows 7 until at least January 15, 2022, after reviewing the current situation, and based on input from our valued enterprise clients.
That’s an extension of 6 months from our previously announced July 15, 2021 date. We will continue to assess the situations facing our company customers and communicate any additional changes in the future.
This extension seems to have been due to the COVID-19 pandemic relative to the initial announcement, but Windows 7 users will still get a 6-month window through which they can upgrade to the newer OS.
Do you use Google Chrome, and if so, will you consider upgrading to Windows 10 more quickly with this announcement?
