A total of eight Chromebooks will now reportedly receive software updates until June 2025, for an added three years to the original Auto Update Expiration Date of 2022.

Initially discovered by Chrome Unboxed, the Google Auto Update Policy page was updated to increase the End of Life date for eight Chromebooks.

It follows the recent update to Chrome OS 77, which began its stable rollout with improvements to Google Assistant and media management tools.

The laptops gaining the extra three years are all Lenovo products, except for the Poin2 Chromebook 14.

Each Chromebook sold is given a guarantee by Google of regular automatic updates for 6.5 years, though this only applies to the hardware platform.

This recent move shows a push from Google to extend the life of their Chromebook products, as rumours swell surrounding a possible merger between Android and Chrome OS into Fuchsia.

However, as usual, there is some fine print to be aware of, with Google stating the updates are ‘subject to certain limitations’ from third-party suppliers.

“Google will work with suppliers in an effort to ensure continued support”.
