Adobe confirms there'll be no Flash Player for Android Jelly Bean

Last November Adobe Systems announced a restructure that would see the business stop developing its Flash multimedia player for mobile browsers. Instead, it would increase its investment in HTML5 and would work to help developers enable video playback within apps.

It’s now confirmed that the forthcoming ‘Jelly Bean’ version 4.1 update of the Android OS will not have a certified Flash player. This means that browsers on devices sold with or updated to Android v4.1 won’t officially support Flash.

In a blog post, the company wrote “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.”

It also notes that devices that don’t already have Flash Player installed will no longer be able to install it from the Google Play Store after 15th August 2012.
