Microsoft will discontinue their latest service update for Windows 8.1 users, where the Microsoft Edge Chromium 110 service will stop operating and get support to run, Friday (12/23).
Some time ago, Microsoft has given the same announcement where it applies to those who are still using Windows 7 and Windows 8. Microsoft declared that the Microsoft Edge Chromium 110 service will stop providing their services.
When Windows 7 and Windows 8 users access the Microsoft Edge Chromium 110 service, then automatically the web from Microsoft will suggest using an operating system that still provides active support.
Well the same thing will happen by those who are still using Windows 8.1 where Microsoft will start discontinuing the Microsoft Edge Chromium 110 service, as has been expected by the company where Windows users should at least use a system that still gets the latest support.
Regarding the system, Microsoft said it only provides Microsoft Edge Chromium 110 support for Windows 10 and Windows 11 users only. Therefore, for those who want to get this access, they must use the operating system requested by the company.
Microsoft seems to be one of the developers who started enforcing this rule in Microsoft Edge Chromium 110, because besides them there are still other companies that say they will stop support to be able to run on Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 like Google Chrome.
To be sure, in the next few months there are many browsers based on Chromium that will eliminate their support for this outdated operating system. Google Chrome has reportedly also overtaken Microsoft Edge Chromium 110 for not providing their support in legacy operating systems.
"Starting from the Microsoft Edge Chromium 110 version, Microsoft will not provide support for Windows 8.1 users as much as Windows 7 and Windows 8 users. This will come into effect in early 2023." Microsoft wrote.
What do you think? Are you a user of one of the three operating systems mentioned above? It looks like you do have to move to the Windows 10 operating system or later to get much better access to support from Microsoft and other platforms.
