    Flash Player hasn't been supported by Adobe on Android since 4.1 Jellybean back in 2012. Flash for mobile and out-of-the-box support for the technology disapeared. Technically, it was still easy to play Flash-based websites until 4.3, though, as the AOSP Android browser that was then pre-loaded on every smartphone still supported Flash.

    When Android 4.4 Kit Kat was released, Google switched to Chromium for WebView support. WebView is the built-in browser used by the system to navigate to web pages without using your default browser. When WebView was replaced with Chromium, this broke support for third party browsers using Flash such as Dolphin and Puffin etc. Same thing with Android 5.0, officially, you can't get Flash sites to work on Chrome, Firefox, Dolphin and that's where FlashFox comes in.

    Phone Arena put together a quick guide on how to add Flash support to devices running Android 5.0 and it really couldn’t be easier:
