If You Don’t Download Flash to Your Android by August 15th…You Won’t Be Able To
Consider this another nail in the coffin for Flash. Though it is currently still widely in use, Adobe is making it plain they are in the process of phasing Flash out. Adobe has even gone as far as announcing they will be removing Flash as an available download in the Google Play Store August 15th. In a statement on Adobe’s blog site, they state “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. 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”. This will not affect those who have already downloaded Flash via the Play Store, but for those who haven’t done so by the time August 15th arrives, they will no longer have the choice of doing so. This means either download Flash in the Play Store by August 15th, or you’ll have to find it on your own elsewhere once that date arrives.
