How To Use Beachbody On Demand On Android (Updated)

I just picked up a new Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.  Coming from a Windows Phone, I haven’t been able to access Beachbody On Demand from my phone.  Tonight I was determined to make it happen!

Help! I Get An Error In Android Chrome!

Out of the box, I can’t use Beachbody on Demand using the Chrome Browser.  Maybe you’ve tried and you’ve received an error like this one:

Chrome Browser Error from Beachbody On DemandThe error states that “Your Flash Plug-in is Out of Date”.  It’s the same error I also get on Windows Phone.  That is because under the covers, Beachbody On Demand leverages the Flash Video format, and Adobe has decided not to officially support flash on Android.  Bummer!

 

 

 

All Is Not Lost!

However, this isn’t as bad as it may seem.  Chrome, the default web browser on Android implements Flash Video.  The error is saying that your Flash plug-in is out of date. It’s not saying Flash isn’t supported on this device.  All you need to do is scroll down to the bottom of this page, and check the checkbox labeled “Don’t show this message again”, and then hit that X up in the top left corner.

 

 

 

 

From there you are taken to the home page for Beachbody On Demand.  You can navigate to the workout you want to do and you’re on your way!   Below I started an Insanity Max Workout from The Challenge Du Jour. Happy Sweating!
