Adobe not supporting Flash on Android Jelly Bean

updated 09:27 am EDT, Fri June 29, 2012

New Flash installs also being disabled on Google Play

Adobe will stop supporting Flash Player in Android from Android 4.1 onwards, with new installs of Flash on the mobile OS ceasing altogether in the near future. A company blog post has announced that there will not be a certified implementation of Flash Player on Jelly Bean; development and testing of Flash for the new version of Android has already ceased.

As of August 15th, moreover, Flash Player will be withdrawn from the Google Play Store. Downloads after that date will mostly be limited to updates for devices with Flash Player already installed. Some files should be be available in the Adobe archives for download, but without Google Play-based updates.

Late last year, Adobe confirmed that it was stopping work on mobile Flash, finishing at version 11.1 for Android and the BlackBerry PlayBook. Future developments were redirected to bugfixes and closing security holes, with the company focusing on AIR.

    SJ was right.

    One less reason to buy an Android phone.
