Adobr Shockwave To Be Discontinued At Last On April 9th

It’s not just Flash that Adobr has given up on. Taking into account customer feedback, Adobr has confirmed that it’s now going to discontinue Shockwave at last for Windows. This will happen next month, on April 9th to be precise, after Adobr already phased out the Director authoring tool and the Mac player two years ago.

For most people, this will be the swan song for Adobr’s web plugin. The only users who will continue to receive support for Shockwave beyond April 9th, 2020 will be enterprise customers who have contracts that are due to run out in 2022.

It’s not surprising to see that Adobr has now decided to make this decision. The Shockwave plugin isn’t as useful as it once used to be. The use has declined as the internet has adopted newer technologies such as HTML5.

Adobr discontinuing Shockwave may not mean much to most users as they’re unlikely to face any issues due to its absence on most websites. Many developers gave up on Shockwave long ago which is why there won’t be any issues with modern websites. However, some issues may be noticed on older websites that have features and media experiences built using Shockwave, so do keep that in mind.
