Google announced yesterday that it will guarantee updates for ten years for Chromebooks running Chrome OS.

Google promises ten years of updates for Chromebooks

The ten-year updates will primarily apply to Chromebooks sold from 2021 onwards but will also be available for Chromebooks purchased earlier. In a blog post, Google writes:

Starting in 2024, if you have Chromebooks that were released from 2021 onwards, you’ll automatically get 10 years of updates. For Chromebooks released before 2021 and already in use, users and IT admins will have the option to extend automatic updates to 10 years from the platform’s release (after they receive their last automatic update).
