Initially, the corporation had the intention of ending support on July 15th, 2021. However, because of the widespread COVID-19 outbreak, Google decided to push back the deadline, initially to January 15, 2022, and then again to January 10, 2023. Users who are still on Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 will no longer be eligible for security updates or technical support from Microsoft.
The business has stated that outdated versions of the Windows operating system would no longer receive security or software patches after January 10th.
