One of the great things anyone would love about Android OS is flash support but this is coming to an end soon. Adobe announced in an official blog post two days ago.
Speaking about the Flash palyer in Google Play store,
However, with Android 4.1 this is no longer going to be the case, as 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.
Flash is one of the little edge Android has over iOS and it’s a fact that some Android users will be disappointed about this. HTML5 is the future of rich media on mobile and Adobe clearly admits this by taking this step.
iOS never supported Adobe Flash, Steve Jobs made that clear and with the death of Flash on Android, no other mobile OS supports Flash except, of course, Symbian. It even seems the most recent release of Symbian Belle lacks Flash support. Steve was right after all when he said Flash is rather old and no longer in vogue.
Beginning August 15th we will use the configuration settings in the Google Play Store to limit continued access to Flash Player updates to only those devices that have Flash Player already installed. Devices that do not have Flash Player already installed are increasingly likely to be incompatible with Flash Player and will no longer be able to install it from the Google Play Store after August 15th.
Starting from August 15, fresh installs of Flash will be disabled on Google Play and Adobe adviced uninstalling Flash from devices that’s already been upgraded to Android OS 4.1 Jelly Beans for stability reasons. HTML5 is the future or rich multimedia content on mobile.
