In case you were wondering about Adobe Flash support for Android Jelly Bean, we have some bad news for you. The latest addition to the Android Market will probably not get a new version of Adobe Flash. Following the announcement they made back in November, Adobe have discontinued support for Flash. For the current generation of certified devices Adobe Flash will continually be available and supported through updates. However, once the new version of Android becomes available for the device, Adobe recommends that you uninstall the plug-in as they cannot guarantee any support for it. More so, devices that don’t come with Flash pre-installed will be unable to download and install it from the Store after August 15th. The full list of devices that come with Flash can be found on Adobe’s website. You should know that also from Adobe you can download and sideload any version of Flash for Android when it will no longer be available.
Lots of websites, especially those serve videos are still using Adobe’s rendering technology. HTML5 will soon replace Flash and it offers so much more but requires a joint effort to be implemented all over the web. If you tried to run video in Google’s Chrome for Android you may have noticed that it runs fine for most of them using HTML5. That is the future we are moving forward to.
