when will Microsoft stop supporting IE8?

I keep getting a message that IE8 will not be supported soon when browsing at Google. What is the official end of support for IE8 scheduled? I am still on XP SP3.

It will be supported on XP SP3 until extended support ends for that operating system which is April 2014.  Similarly, it will be supported on Vista until extended support ends for that operating system in April 2017 (or unless and until they ship a new version of IE through a future OS service pack).
