“No More Flash Player” Google Says,”Shift to HTML5″

Nick just like Spencer is a net guru. Both of them are always on the loop to get you informed. If you are a regular Internet user usually at your laptop or PC, you are familiar with the term ‘flash player’. Yes, this has been a common thing in various web platforms. For example, Nick is a fun of music. The only music site he is well familiar of is Google’s Youtube. This guy whenever he wants to get access to the site, the OS alerts, activate flash. A hectic situation for Nick. The good news is here. Flash players are to go extinct now we are switching to HTML5.

To verify this, I will take you to Google’s Post and I quote;

Google display ads go 100% HTML5

Over the last few years, we’ve rolled out tools to encourage advertisers to use HTML5, so you can reach the widest possible audience across screens ( To enhance the browsing experience for more people on more devices, the Google Display Network and DoubleClick Digital Marketing are now going 100% HTML5:

– Starting June 30th, 2016, display ads built in Flash can no longer be uploaded into AdWords and DoubleClick Digital Marketing.
– Starting January 2nd, 2017, display ads in the Flash format can no longer run on the Google Display Network or through DoubleClick.

It’s important to update your display ads^ to HTML5 before these dates.

AdWords advertisers who currently use Flash ads in their campaigns have several easy ways to ensure your creative can continue to show on the Google Display Network. Read more here:

^Video ads built in Flash will not be impacted at this time. ”

I decided to involve the post for the lazy ones who can’t click the numerous links for referral. Now watching videos and browsing over the cyberspace will be an easy ‘task’ for Nick.

Thank you Google you’ve done to us a great deal.
