You can now switch your sites to run on PHP 8!

Upgrading your site to use PHP 8 can be done by clicking on the Settings menu item from the site dashboard and changing your PHP version to 8.0.

To make things easier, we also released an upgrade that allows WP-CLI to run its commands using the PHP version of the site it’s running on. This means that if you keep your sites on PHP 7.4, everything will work as you expect it to, making for a much smoother server and site management workflow.
