Final software update notification
If you get a "Final software update" notification, your device will stop receiving ChromeOS and browser updates. These updates include:
- Security updates, bug fixes, and new features for Chromebooks. Existing features may stop working.
- Support for certain apps that require specific ChromeOS or browser versions.
Automatic updates policy
- Chromebooks receive 10 years of automatic updates.*
- These improvements automatically help keep your Chromebook up to date for longer with enhanced security and stability for 10 years from the platform release date.
- To make sure your Chromebook stays compatible with our updates, Google works with all Chromebook component manufacturers to develop and test the software on every single Chromebook.
- Even if your Chromebook no longer gets automatic updates, it still comes with verified boot, meaning every time the Chromebook starts up, it does a self-check. If it detects that the system has been tampered with or corrupted in any way, typically it repairs itself, reverting back to its original state.
- You can check how long devices will receive automatic updates.
Important: The “End of Sale” date is controlled by the device manufacturer and isn't related to a device’s eligibility for Google updates.
* For devices prior to 2021 that are eligible to receive extended updates, some features and services may not be supported.
