Adobe Systems has discontinued distributing Adobe flash player for Android OS through Google Play Store. Instead it is now available as APK file for developers, android enthusiasts and other users to install it on phone and make web browsers and flash supported apps run the flash contents. Since HTML5 has overtaken web, the importance of flash has started diminishing. Most websites including YouTube now utilize HTML5 but still supports flash. Web browsers for Windows do require flash player installed to play online videos and play games but for android, several apps are available that can catch video files from websites and play them on phone.
How it Works:
The developer provides several tools for developing games and applications for flash player which can be utilized by third party developers to create their own products. Adobe Flash Player is a freeware software available for all popular desktop and mobile platforms including Android.
How to Install it:
Most of the times, when an application asks for adobe flash player, it also provides a link to download that. If it does not then you can download it from here. The APK file once reached your phone can be executed normally like you install software on PC and proceed with installation process. Make sure you enable “Unknown Sources” settings in phone to allow the phone to install non-market apps.
How to Use it:
There is no special skills required to handle this app. The adobe flash player application is fully automated which means you do not need to alter the settings. Still if you wish to customize it according to your needs, just run “Flash Player Settings” from menu. Make sure you are connected to internet.
Separate Flash Player versions are available for Android 2.x, 3.x, 4.x, 5.x which can be downloaded below. (We have tested Flash Player app with Android 5.0 and later versions and it works just fine.)
Safe to Install: These are original and unmodified Flash Player APK as provided by the Developer. See hashes on download page.
