-Use Safari, Internet Explorer, or Firefox. Current versions of these browsers will continue to support the Blue Jeans plug-in.
-Try the New Blue Jeans App (not yet available). Blue Jeans is currently working on a stand-alone application for Mac and Windows. Instead of running inside a web browser, the Blue Jeans app installs and runs like any other program. The Blue Jeans app will be generally available no later than the date when Google disables plug-ins in Chrome.
