There Will Be No Certified Implementations of Flash Player for Android 4.1


At the beginning of November everybody was shocked to hear that Adobe was preparing to throw in the towel in relationship to the mobile world and its Flash Player. We even expected no support for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich but somehow we were glad to be wrong.

However, Adobe said it out loud and clear this time: “we have not continued developing and testing Flash Player for this new version of Android and its available browser options.  There will be no certified implementations of Flash Player for Android 4.1“.

Starting August 15, Google Play Store access to Flash Player updates will be limited to certified devices, which are basically those that ship with the Flash Player out of the box. And, to answer all of your questions: “if a device is upgraded from Android 4.0 to Android 4.1, the current version of Flash Player may exhibit unpredictable behavior, as it is not certified for use with Android 4.1.  Future updates to Flash Player will not work.  We recommend uninstalling Flash Player on devices which have been upgraded to Android 4.1.

Do you think this time it’s really the end of the road for Flash Player on your Android? Let us know in the comments below and also tell us whether you’ll be missing it. Find out more info at the source link below!
