Google Chrome for Windows 7 Will Continue to Get Updates Until July 2021
Microsoft will release the last set of security updates for Windows 7 on January 14, so next week, the 2009 operating system will officially be given an “unsupported” badge.
And while the risks of running outdated software are obvious, users sticking with Windows 7 won’t have to worry about the lack of updates for their browser. At least if they use Google Chrome.
The Mountain View-based search giant announced this week that Google Chrome for Windows 7 will be supported until at least July 15, 2021, so users have 18 more months to complete the migration to a support platform.
“If you haven’t started your move to Windows 10 yet, or even if your organization is mid-way through migration, you can still benefit from the enterprise capabilities of Chrome,” Max Christoff, Engineering Director, Chrome, says.
