There is an update coming up for Adobe Connect on Oct. 22, 2017.
This update introduces a new Adobe Connect application to join meetings. The Adobe Connect application replaces the Adobe Connect Add-in (version 9.x).
You are prompted to install the new Adobe Connect application in the following scenarios:
- You host or join a 9.x meeting for the first time with an earlier version of the Adobe Connect add-in.
- You share your screen or PowerPoint (PPTX format) files and do not have Adobe Connect application installed.
New in Adobe Connect 9.7 is a desktop application available for both Microsoft Windows and Apple Macintosh users. Now you can easily join, and manage meetings from your desktop. The Adobe Connect application is a stand-alone application that replaces the current Adobe Connect Add-in. With the new Adobe Connect application, users do not need Adobe Flash Player installed or enabled in browsers to join or conduct meetings.
While a new independent application is an option for all users, those users who have the Adobe Flash Player fully enabled in their browser can continue to access Adobe Connect without any downloads
With the Adobe Connect application, users can bookmark frequently visited rooms and view a history of recent meetings, making joining Adobe Connect sessions more seamless than ever.
