Manifest V2 support timeline
Understand when Manifest V2 will stop working for extensions
We're still working on the timeline of the MV2 phase-out plan, so keep an eye out for it in the coming months. We will provide at least 6 months between a timeline announcement and any experiments deprecating MV2 features.
Before announcing a new timeline, we are addressing prioritized platform gaps and closing critical bugs. You can track these on the Known Issues page.
For more information, see our most recent post on the chromium-extensions mailing list.
