Recently, there has been news spreading rapidly about another product joining the ranks of discontinued Google services – and this time, it’s the beloved Jamboard. Effective October 1, 2024, the app will sadly transition into a view-only mode, allowing users one last chance to bid farewell by backing up their cherished Jam files. The final curtain call is scheduled for December 31, 2024, when Jamboard will officially shut down, leaving us without one of the most popular and innovative whiteboarding tools.
With Jamboard’s closure looming, countless users are now on the hunt for a suitable alternative. Businesses have relied on Jamboard for various purposes, including brainstorming and presentations, and its closure will disrupt their workflows, compelling them to seek alternative solutions. Similarly, educators will once again need to find a tool to create engaging and interactive learning experiences for their students.
