Google Chrome will not support Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 in 2023

As of 2023 Google Chrome will no longer support Windows 7 and 8.1 versions of your browser

Tech giant Google recently announced that starting in 2023 it will not offer support for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. The measure requires a browser update, although those who do not have this option will be able to continue using Google Chrome.

After upgrading to Windows 10 and 11, users have witnessed other tweaks from Google. However, the news that as of February 7 of next year, Google Chrome will no longer support versions of Windows 7 and 8.1 generates some nervousness.

Particularly since the decision will affect browsing speed for those who cannot update, or will be exposed to certain cybersecurity risks.

It is important to emphasize that this is not an arbitrary measure. On the contrary, “it has coincided with the end of life cycle that Windows has and that is listed in the official Microsoft support documents.”

The main consequence of not having support for Windows 7 and 8.1 is that, definitively and irreversibly, the user will not be able to carry out new updates from next February 7.
