Blocking or technical failure?

Google was among the first companies to impose sanctions on Russia because of the war in Ukraine. It seems that the company is gradually curtailing its business in the Russian market and users need to think about where and how to migrate from the company's services, look for alternative software options.

One of the steps taken by Google was the cancellation of all paid subscriptions and the inability to make purchases in the Play Store. Now users from Russia are faced with the fact that they are deprived of the opportunity to update the Chrome browser through the Google app store. The company did not make any official announcements regarding the introduction of restrictions, perhaps it quietly made it impossible to update Google Chrome and blocks the installation of a new version of the browser.


Obviously, the problem is widespread and does not depend on the version of the Android operating system, as well as the manufacturer of the gadget. On Apple devices, the current version of the browser is installed without problems. Therefore, you should not write off the fact that the problem may be purely technical in nature. It is worth waiting for Google's comments on the impossibility for Russian users to update Chrome.
