Hi, Casey. Thanks for your post. If you published your courses without checking the box for HTML5 support, it very well might. I'm not 100% on this, so hopefully some other community members can chime in here, but if you didn't publish with HTML5 support out of Storyline 1 and 2, Chrome may still ask you to use a Flash plug in. If they completely abandon the ability to do that your course won't run as expected. 

You can always republish your course ensuring you check that box. You can find resources on publishing to multiple environments here and a comparative chart on supported output here. I hope that helps.

Hi Casey,

One option you'd want to consider is republishing courses with HTML5 publish option within the Articulate publish options selected if not previously done.   

As to the user experience, that's really a function of Google Chrome.  Here is a published plan of record from Google:

The plan has yet to be finalized, but starting in Q4 of 2016 Chrome will default to using HTML5 when available. For sites that require Adobe Flash, the browser will show users a prompt to manually enable the plugin. Once allowed, the site will reload and Chrome will remember a user’s preference on future visits.

Flash Player will still be installed as part of Chrome, but it will be invisible to websites. Google has built-in measures to address sites that direct users to install Flash from Adobe. When users click on an “Install Flash” link, Chrome will show the prompt to allowlist Flash on that site.
