Google announced that Gmail will stop working on Chrome Browser version 53 and lower by the end of this year. Windows XP and Windows Vista are likely to be affected by this as they run on version 49. As from next week, users will start seeing a banner at the top of Gmail telling them to upgrade to an up-to-date version of Google’s browser.
Users who remain on Chrome v53 and below could start being redirected to the basic HTML version of Gmail as early as December
Moreover, Google also suggested that users of outdated versions of chrome are more vulnerable to security exploits.
