Ending support for IE11 for all Google Workspace apps

Microsoft recently announced that they will stop supporting Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11). As a result, we recommend our own users switch to a different browser as soon as possible, to avoid any possible disruptions in service such as degraded performance or security vulnerabilities. Google Workspace will officially stop supporting IE 11 on March 15, 2021.

Over the next few weeks we’ll start showing a banner to all Google Workspace users still using IE 11 that informs them of the need to upgrade their browser by March 15, 2021.

We’ll publish an additional reminder on the Google Workspace Updates blog as we approach the end of support for IE 11.

Check out the Help Center for more information on supported browsers for Google Workspace.

Getting started

  • Admins: We recommend you encourage IE 11 users in your organization to switch to a supported browser as soon as possible.
  • End users: To prepare for this change, we recommend using a supported browser with Google Workspace.
