Its official Windows 7 support ends January 14, 2020

Windows 7 support will end on January 14, 2020.  After that, technical assistance and software updates from Windows Update that help protect your PC will no longer be available for the product.  While you could continue to use your PC running Windows 7, without continued software and security updates, it will be at greater risk for viruses and malware.  Microsoft strongly recommends that you move to a new PC running Windows 10 sometime before January 2020 to avoid a situation where you need service or support that is no longer available.

I believe KB4493132 will begin to be rolled out via Windows Update which will inform users the OS is going to reach end of life. I haven't got it on any of my installs yet however:
