Intuit, maker of QuickBooks, has notified its ProAdvisors that after April 20, 2021, it will no longer support its QuickBooks Online Windows or Mac desktop apps.
These apps allow users to launch QuickBooks Online directly from their desktops instead of requiring that they first open web browsers, such as Microsofit Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Safari.
No action is required by any user. The apps will still be available to users as long as their browsers can support them. However, users will no longer be able to download, receive customer support, or software updates to the apps.
The company made the decision to discontinue support of these apps because of limited customer use. All users will receive in-app notifications starting this week.
Intuit recommends that after April 20, users access QuickBooks Online through their preferred browsers by signing in at https://quickbooks.intuit.com/sign-in-offer/.
Meanwhile, the company is turning its attention to investing in other products and services more widely used by accountants and their clients.
