On June 16, 2009, Microsoft Vice President Erik Jorgensen said that Microsoft plans to scale back Soapbox, citing tough economic conditions.
The last version of Soapbox was available in English (U.S.); service and upload instructions are also in English. There were, however, plans for language availability to be widened in the future. Videos were shown at 400 x 300 pixels by default, but could be expanded to play in full screen. Soapbox played videos using Microsoft's Windows Media Player plug-in when loaded with Internet Explorer, while videos loaded in other browsers were displayed with Adobe Flash Player.
On July 21, 2009, it was announced that Microsoft would be closing the service to uploads at the end of July. The service was closed entirely at the end of August 2009.
