Google Mobile’s Flash Warnings Now Rolling Out To More Languages
Google's mobile warning for Adobe Flash powered sites rolls out to more global languages.
In July, Google began labeling the mobile search results that had results from Flash enabled sites with mobile warnings. The warning cautioned mobile users from clicking to the site, by showing a notice that reads: “Uses Flash. May not work on your device. Try anyway | Learn more.”
That warning is rolling out to more international languages today. In early October, it expanded to Spanish searches on google.es, Japanese queries on google.co.jp, and British queries on google.co.uk.
Today, according to Google’s Johannes Mehlem, it is expanding to “more non-English queries.”
Here is what the warning might look like in English and German:
This warning is also included in the new mobile usability reports within Google Webmaster Tools, that also launched this morning.
