Chrome, Google extend support for Windows 7 by a year

Chrome is available on many platforms including Windows 7. Google has decided to extend support for this environment until 2023. In short, the browser will benefit from security updates for many more months.

The search giant realizes that adapting to a new operating system is not that easy. This is especially true for companies where often an entire software ecosystem has been developed. So it takes time, preparation and “resources”. The operation is delicate and can lead to a loss of productivity.

The Internet browser plays a big role as it is often the gateway to online services and applications, the cloud and SaaS. SaaS is a contraction of Software as a Service (SaaS). It is a commercial operating model of software in which software is installed on a remote server instead of the user’s machine.

Google explains that one of its missions through Chrome is to limit potential disruptions to productivity. So businesses still running Windows 7 can still benefit from security updates and bug fixes.

The veteran has decided to extend this support for the second time. When Microsoft abandoned Windows 7, support for Chrome was announced until July 2021. Meanwhile, the world has been hit by an unprecedented health crisis. The firm then decided to postpone this date to January 2022.

This deadline has once again been postponed by several months. Chrome for Windows 7 will continue to receive important security and stability updates until January 15, 2023. Interestingly, this date coincides with the end of Windows 7 Extended Support for Business. This would then be the back end of Windows 7.
