Back in October 2019 Google announced that they would be changing the user agent for Googlebot in December 2019.
Updating the user agent of Googlebot
Googlebot uses a Chrome-based browser to render webpages, as we announced at Google I/O earlier this year. As part of this, in December 2019 we'll update Googlebot's user agent strings to reflect the new browser version, and periodically update the version numbers to match Chrome updates in Googlebot.
