Adobe nicked the flash player off the Google Play Store on August 15 and it also stated that neither will it be updating the software anymore nor will it be working with Google to make it compatible with future Android versions.
“Flash Player continues to be available on Google Play for users in the UK for a short while due to requests from strategic partners,” said a spokesperson for Adobe notes BBC. No dates for removal of the player have been announced though. BBC is one of the strategic partners of Adobe in the UK and it is already working with the Photoshop maker on video player alternatives to make its TV shows available on mobiles.
Adobe has put up a note on its Google Play Store Flash Player page which reads “Flash player is no longer being updated for new device configurations. Flash player will not be supported on any android version beyond android 4.0.x”. This clearly indicates that it will not be working with Android Jelly Bean.
