InVision Shutdown Announcement

In a surprising turn of events, InVision no longer be available in the market for prototype creations based on DSM as well as other products on which it was based. This is a decision for which the team has thought very carefully and the new practice will be implemented in the final 2024. The last day of InVision account day for users will be December 31st of the current year. After this day, at this moment, this function will be available, and no data will be stored.

Such an announcement would probably cause polarity, the strongest of which could be felt by those who, for example, have become familiar with the way InVision has been supporting all creative operations. Nevertheless, InVision guarantees that its goal here is to make sure that the transition takes place as well as possible For Enterprise customers the Sales people will be working with them directly and answer the questions the customers may possibly ask about this transition. If they need alternative Solutions, they will guide them to get information about them.

Self-serve (non-Enterprise) users will have sufficient time to remain InVision users until the end of 2024. Nevertheless, the yearly subscription sees the curtains this time, and the subscribers would now have to pick one out of the monthly subscription plans available.

InVision has proved to be a great ecosystem part of the design industry and engages it in a drastic change of prototype making and emphasizes the paramount role of a user-centric approach. As this chapter ends, what lies ahead for the design industry is growth and staying relevant. The design industry will remain stronger than ever in the years to come.


InVision’s Freehand visual collaboration product was acquired by Miro. Miro has exciting plans for Freehand and will be communicating with Freehand customers directly moving forward. This acquisition is part of the transition plan as InVision discontinues its design collaboration services.

For users of Freehand, this means that their workflows can continue on Miro’s platform. This is an important part of the transition, especially for those who have integrated Freehand into their creative processes.

InVision is committed to making this transition as smooth as possible and will provide support and guidance throughout the process. The goal is to ensure minimal disruption to users’ workflows and to provide them with a platform where they can continue their work.

This is a significant development in the design industry, and it’s expected that the acquisition of Freehand by Miro will bring new opportunities and innovations to the field.
