Check your Chromebook’s update schedule

Chromebooks, Chromebases, and Chromeboxes automatically manage updates so that your device has the latest software and security features. To check your update schedule:

  1. At the bottom right, select the time and then Settings .
  2. At the bottom left, select About ChromeOS.
  3. Select Additional details.
  4. In the “Update schedule” section, you’ll find when your Chromebook will receive its last update.

Final software update notification

If you get a "Final software update" notification, your device won’t receive ChromeOS and browser updates anymore. 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 keep your Chromebook up to date for longer with enhanced security and stability.
  • To make sure your Chromebook stays compatible with our updates, Google works with all Chromebook component manufacturers.
  • Even if your Chromebook no longer gets automatic updates, it still comes with a verified boot. If the system is tampered with, it repairs itself.
  • 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 will receive extended updates, some features and services may not be supported. Learn about extended updates support.
