The decision, which was announced earlier in the summer, followed the company's decision to halt development of the software for mobile devices, in general.
Adobe was clear to note that the mobile decision will not affect the Flash player for PCs, or Air, which lets developers turn normally web-based apps into mobile apps using Flash.
The company says the main reason for removing the plug-in is the launch of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Adobe says they expected "unpredictable behaviour," which would be completely unacceptable, if you tried using the software with Jelly Bean.
If you are currently running Jelly Bean, Adobe also encourages you to uninstall the Flash Player.
Current versions will continue to receive security updates until September 2013.
