Check when your Chromebook's updates will stop

Chromebooks, Chromebases and Chromeboxes automatically manage updates so that your device has the latest software and security features. To check your Auto Update Expiry (AUE) date:

  1. At the bottom right, select the time. 
  2. Select Settings .
  3. At the left panel, at the bottom, select About Chrome OS.
  4. Select Additional details.
  5. 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 will stop receiving Chrome OS and browser updates. These updates include:

  • Security updates, bug fixes and new features for Chromebooks. Existing features may stop working.
  • Support for certain apps and extensions that require specific Chrome OS or browser versions.

Auto Update Expiry policy

Each device has an Auto Update Expiry (AUE) date. We encourage you to check the AUE dates of devices before your purchase.

  • Before the AUE date, devices will receive new software updates from Google.
  • On and after the AUE date, devices will not receive software updates from Google.

Important: The 'End of Sale' date is controlled by the device manufacturer and isn't related to a device’s AUE date.
