Google Pauses Chrome and Chrome OS Release Schedule
Google is putting its usual Chrome release schedule on hold as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
Typically the company releases new builds of Chrome OS and the Chrome web browser every six weeks. But the company says it’s “pausing upcoming Chrome and Chrome OS releases for a while “due to adjusted work schedules at this time.” In other words, with many employees working from home, working on other projects, or otherwise affected by international efforts to slow the spread of the coronavirus and COVID-19, Google may not have the resources to reliably push out stable releases as quickly as usual.
Google’s announcement comes out a day after Chrome 81 was supposed to be released… and then never materialized. Rather than put out a potentially buggy Chrome 81, the company has decided to stick with the more stable Chrome 80 for now. But that doesn’t mean we won’t see any updates at all — Google is expected to roll out minor security updates as patches for Chrome 80.
