early March 2016 Google Chrome 32-bit will NOT be updated any more on Linux

It will still work but no be supported - no updates.

 

I think google Chrome for 64-bit will be ending soon

 

You might look at Chromium - which Linux teams will still support and have been for a while.

It is not part of Google.

I have been getting the warning also.  I thought it was just for Ubuntu 15.10 but it looks as if they are leaving open source all together.

Chrome 32 bit is being phased out across all platforms.  The 64 bit is still going to be supported and is Not being phased out. 64 bit computers are the future for now and for a company to support a product in shrinking market like the 32 bit can become quite expensive.  I'm seeing more and more distro's doing away with their 32 bit ISO images for the same reason.

I suspect the only 32-bit OSs will be those for older systems like Puppy, LUbuntu, XUbuntu, etc.

Yes I agree, and even in time these will move on to 64 bit.
