This doesn't really come as a surprise given that Adobe announced last year that it was ceasing development on Flash Player for mobile devices, but the company has clarified that it will not support Adobe Flash Player on the new Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system. Adobe says that no devices running Android 4.1 will come with Flash Player, and devices that are upgraded from Android 4.0 to 4.1 may "exhibit unpredictable behavior" if the plugin is still installed. Adobe recommends users uninstall the Flash Player plugin on devices that have Android 4.1. Additionally, Adobe says that starting on August 15 of this year, it will limit installs of the Flash Player plugin to devices that already have it, meaning that no new installs of the plugin will be allowed.
