Wow, this was a tough read for folks who have grown fond of Flip. The shock and surprise are still there, like watching someone desecrate a hallowed place, deface a rock face.

I still remember when I cut Flipgrid (say its name) out my activities. I no longer cared for the direction those who had acquired it were taking it. I still remember the plucky little group of folks that made Flipgrid so great.

Thank you, Flipgrid. Thank you.

The Announcement

For nearly 12 years, amazing educators like you have welcomed Flipgrid and then Flip into your classrooms to empower student voice, creativity and self-expression, and we’re excited to continue our journey together, now inside Microsoft Teams for Education ( In order to streamline the number of apps educators need to use in their classroom and integrate Flip into more natural assignment rhythms, we have moved some of the core Flip features into Teams for Education and will be retiring our web site and mobile apps by September 30, 2024. If you are not already using Teams for Education, visit this page ( and click “sign up for free”. Once downloaded and set up for your classroom, you can easily share video assignments and messages with students and receive video responses using the Flip camera. This saves educators time having to onboard to Flip outside of the Microsoft 365 ecosystem, and it enhances the already rich classroom management toolset available for our Teams for Education users. Starting July 1, Flip will no longer be available in mobile app stores, and our web site on will go into view-only mode. While you will no longer be able to create new groups, topics or videos after this date, you will still have access to download your Flip videos through September 30. Thank you again, from the bottom of our hearts, for all the great ideas, support and passion you’ve shown for Flip and for all that you do each day to empower future generations. While it’s incredibly hard to say goodbye to our Flip standalone apps, this community has meant the world to us, and we have every intention of continuing on our mission together to empower every learner. There are exciting new possibilities on the horizon for educators and students, and we look forward to what the future holds!
