    • Along with Microsoft, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox will also say goodbye to Adobe Flash Player.
    • In July 2017, it was announced that Adobe would discontinue the update to Flash Player after 31 December 2020.

    American software company Adobe has updated the final schedule for its Flash player. It has also announced that it will stop Flash content from 12 January 2021. The company has asked users to uninstall their flash player before reaching its final support.

    The new Adobe update comes at the time when Microsoft announced to discontinue support for Adobe Flash Player on Edge and Internet Explorer. Along with Microsoft, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox are also willing to call Adobe Flash Player a goodbye.

    In the last release of Flash Player, the company said that Adobe will not support Flash Player after 31 December 2020. At the same time, Adobe Flash Player will start blocking content from 12 January 2021. Adobe will prevent users from accessing Flash content on their web browsers.

    Microsoft had already announced that Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer will not support Adobe Flash Player after December 2020. In July 2017, it was announced that Adobe would stop updating and delivering the Flash Player after December 31, 2020. 

    This is being done due to less usage of this technology and the availability of more secure options like HTML, WebGL, and WebAssembly.

    Adobe first announced the retirement of its flash player in July 2017. The company has taken this decision in partnership with Apple, Google Facebook Microsoft, and Mozilla. Flash Player started its journey in January 1996 and this made any web application, game, and browser animation easy.
