If you haven’t already downloaded it you’re out of luck. If you do have Flash already installed on your Android you’ll continue to get security updates, but that’s about it. And the reprieve for those who already have Flash will only last for so long. Google opted to not include Flash support in its newest OS version, so as users upgrade to Jelly Bean 4.1 (and eventually beyond) Flash will cease to work at all.
For now Adobe has released a list of device/OS combinations that still support Flash. The list contains more than 500 Android options sporting OS versions ranging from Froyo 2.2 to Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.
This development isn’t out of left field. With the rise of HTML5, and Apple’s refusal to make their devices Flash compatible, Adobe had a harder and harder time keeping the software pertinent within the mobile world. The official announcement of Flash for Android’s demise came earlier this summer and gave interested users some time to download Flash before it disappeared from Google Play for good. But not that date has come and gone.
