Adobe made an offcial announcement today regarding its Flash Player support for Android devices. According to the company’s official statement, users would no longer be able to download the Flash player from the Google Play Store after August 15th, 2012 which means that those who have already got flash installed in their devices would receive security updates over time but those who would like to download it in devices which do not come with Flash pre-installed in them would not be able to do so, thus the low cost Android devices would suffer thereof.

Adobe also added that the newly launched Android 4.1 (JellyBean) would not be getting Flash support on its new devices

Adobe’s official Statement read, “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.”
