I did all required changes for v3 and uploaded the extension.

Nevertheless I received an email from Google telling me that I still have manifest v2 extensions.

How can I find out what is missing?

How can I test if the migration to v3 was successful?

Chrome / DevTools do not show any errors / info what is missing or wrong.

Hi,

Looking at the two published extensions under your email, I can see that they are both on Manifest V3.

We did send the email to a slightly wider group than intended, so it sounds likely it was a mistake - sorry about that.

Great work on migrating :)

There isn't currently a way to test the post MV2 deprecation behavior I'm afraid.

If the `manifest_version` key in your manifest.json is set to 3, and your extension functions as expected, you're good :)

Hi Oliver,

Thank you for the swift reply and the check of my extensions :)

I received the email on December 4, 2023, and have not received any other emails since. Looks good, I guess.
