Google isn't the only company ending support for IE11 though as last November, Microsoft ended support for the Teams web app in the browser while announcing that Office 365 apps would no longer be supported from August 17 of this year.
Ending IE11 support
The end of support for IE11 in Workspace will affect users of Google Workspace Essentials, Business Starter, Business Standard, Business Plus, Enterprise Essentials, Enterprise Standard, and Enterprise Plus, as well as G Suite Basic, Business, Education, Enterprise for Education, and Nonprofits customers, which is why Google is warning users about the upcoming change.
For those that didn't see its blog post though, the company has begun showing a banner alert to Workspace users in IE11 telling them they'll need to upgrade their browser by March 15 to continue using its services.
While users could switch to Chrome or Firefox, Microsoft has made a number of advancements to Chromium-based Edge since its initial release in 2019 and the browser now really feels like a modern replacement of IE11.
