Adobe to Nick Flash Player off the Android store from 15th August

The company announced its decision through a blog post and further said that only those users who have already installed the flash player on their devices will be receiving any future updates. To ensure that this is the case, Adobe is going to make configuration changes on its Google Play Flash Player page.

“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.” read the blog post.

“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.” the post read further.

The Photoshop maker has already announced that it is not going to develop a Flash Player for Android Jelly Bean and that it is not going to work with Google either to get Flash working with Nexus 7’s default browser – Chrome.

Adobe has said that it is going to work towards development of AIR for mobile platforms which is currently available for all versions of Android right from Gingerbread to Jelly Bean.
