And now, devices launched in 2023 and beyond will receive automatic updates for even longer. The new Lenovo 10e Chromebook tablet and Acer Chromebook 712 will both receive automatic updated until June 2028.

Though the two Chromebooks are indeed going to be updated until 2028, not all Chromebooks coming in 2023 will receive updates for this long. It all depends on the hardware platform running in that Chromebook and some Chromebooks coming this year will be on older, already established hardware platforms.

Acer 712 and Lenovo 10e

For example, if a new Chromebook device arrives next year with the same hardware platform as those two Chromebooks, they’d only receive seven years of updates.

Google also announced its improved Admin Console with faster load times and the ability to search and filter through devices. You’ll also be able to see the Automatic Update Expiration dates for the devices.

At first, Google offered three years of guaranteed updated on older Chromebooks before eventually extending it to six years, thus giving schools a good idea of how long their investment will last.

Google’s efforts for extending the life of its Chromebooks are great, just make sure you know what the Automatic Update Expiration date will be before investing into your enterprise or institution. You can check out a list of planned expiration dates sorted by brand on Google’s Help page.
