Flash Player for Samsung Galaxy

Once you get the brand new Samung Galaxy S5/S4, you may encounter the Flash issue: Galaxy S5/S4 doesn’t support Flash! That’s because Adobe was no longer releasing any updates for Flash Player for Android devices and the Flash player app was withdrawn from Play Store.

So, to make Flash work on your S5/S4, we need both Flash player (which is not pre-installed) and a third-party browser. Here is the detailed steps on how to install flash player on your Samsung Galaxy.

1 Enable "Unknown Sources"

Before downloading Adobe Flash, make sure your Android device is connected to the Internet. Go to Menu>-Settings>-Security and check the “Unknown sources” check box. Then tap “OK” to confirm your selection.

2 Download and install Adobe Flash Player

On the Archive page of Adobe, scroll down to“Flash Player for Android 4.0 archives”and select Flash Player 11.1 for Android 4.0 ( Then download begins automatically. After a few seconds, tap “Install”to install in on your phone.

3 Get a browser that supports Flash on Galaxy

After installing Adobe Flash, you may still find that neither Chrome nor the stock browser (aka internet app) works with Flash on your S5/S4. So you should get another browser that supports flash. Firefox for Android is a good choice. It's a reliable browser for most sites. Please notice, after installing Flash, you need restart Firefox (in the Task Manager, stop it; then start it again).

The steps mentioned above seem a little bit complicated. Actually, instead of using Adobe Flash Player, you may change another flash player for Android. Wondershare Player for Android is highly recommended. With it, you can not only browse flash without any hassle, but also get connected to all your large-screen devices to enrich your digital life!
