In March of this year, Google announced that the company’s Chrome browser would begin seeing 4-week updates with the release of version 94 of the desktop browser. This shortens the milestone cycle by two weeks from the current 6-week cycle that we have known for more than a decade and that doesn’t include the bi-weekly security updates that roll as incremental versions. At that time, it was unclear whether or not the Chrome operating system, a.k.a. Chrome OS, would move to this new update cycle but we speculated that this may be the case in lieu of Google splitting Chrome OS from the Chrome browser via Lacros.

Today, our theories have been confirmed and Google has announced upcoming changes to the Chrome OS release schedule that will mirror the future releases of the Chrome desktop browser. According to the Chromium Blog Post, the Chrome OS release schedule will shift to a 4-week rollout beginning in Q3 with version 94 of the operating system. The adjusted timeline will result in an awkward gap in the release schedule but Google has shared its plan to keep things lined up after the change.
