How to play Flash on Android devices
Want to access Flash content on an Android device? As you might have noticed, it’s not as easy as it used to be, since Adobe stopped development of its Flash Player for Android, back in November 2011. So, what do you do if you want to play Flash games, watch Flash video, or enjoy interactive Flash web sites on an Android device? There are a few different ways to access Flash on Android, though none of them are as effective as the days when Flash was ubiquitous across the Android platform. Still, if you’re desperate to access Flash content on and Android device these will do the job for you:
1. Legacy version of Flash Player for Android
It’s still possible to get hold of the last version of Flash for Android and install this on your device. You can download the Flash Player for Android APK from Softonic then transfer it to a folder on your device.
Before you start to install you need to tell the operating system that it’s OK to install applications from outside of Google Play.
To do this go to Settings > Security and check the Unknown sources box to allow installation of apps from sources other than the Play store.
Browse to the Flash Player installer on your device and tap the icon to open it, before hitting Install. Click Done once installation has been completed.
Now open up your Android browser and go to Settings > Advanced. Make sure that the Enable plug-ins box is set to Always on.
