Google will stop support for Chrome on Windows 7. Google had previously given a deadline of July 15, 2021, but it is extending it by six more months based on feedback from its customers.
In a blog post, the giant tech firm has explained how the migration from Windows 7 to Windows 10 is going to take longer than expected. According to Google, 21pc of organizations are still using Windows 7, and while 78pc of companies have completed the migration, only 1pc of organizations are planning to start migrating soon.
The deadline extension is six months for now, and Google will continue to evaluate the situation and make changes accordingly.
“With this extension of support, enterprises with their upgrades still in progress can rest assured that their users remaining on Windows 7 will continue to benefit from Chrome’s security and productivity benefits,” Google said in its blog post.
“IT teams can also take advantage of Chrome’s existing enterprise capabilities and future roadmap, including our continued investment in cloud management, enterprise security capabilities, and our plans to integrate more closely with the broader ecosystem across the operating system versions,” it added.
This means that the search giant is extending Chrome support for Windows 7, including security and productivity benefits, until at least January 15, 2022.
