Where is there a Flash Adobe Player for Android download? Android has 85.9% of the Global mobile OS market share in sales to end users in the 1st quarter of 2018.
Yet, there doesn't appear to be a version of Flash Player available for ANY version of Android (the most current version is 8.0 Oreo). This makes no sense!
If there is one that is current that exists, but I am simply not seeing it, PLEASE let me know...
Flash Player is not supported on any mobile OS (Android, Blackberry, iOS, Windows Phone). It is only supported on the desktop (Linux, Mac, Windows). See Tech specs | Adobe Flash Player for supported platforms.
On mobile devices, the option I'm aware of is to use a browser, such as Puffin, the renders Flash in the cloud.
Thanks for your rapid response to my post.
The question was rhetorical. I am not interested in utilizing nor in
loading another browser solely so I can utilize the functionality of Flash
Player which may be needed to render things on a few sites. My Chrome
browser is all that I use. Ergo, it would be nice if Flash Player
functioned in the Chrome browser on the Android OS in addition to
functioning in the Chrome browser within the Windows OS.
As Android is now the most used OS on the planet in TOTAL devices used
(even supplanting Microsoft Windows), it would make sense that Adobe would
respond to this trend by catering to the demand...

Flash Player support for Android was dropped in September 2013. Flash Player will EOL at the end of 2020 (Flash & The Future of Interactive Content | Adobe Blog ). There are no plans to support Android in the interim.
It appears that it will be extinct in about 2 more years. So internet sites
like DirecTV.com (the one that specifically prompted me to begin this
conversation) it seems, will need to find alternatives.
That is correct.
why not have a new flash player android
Did you read the messages? Flash will be gone for every computer in 2020, Adobe certainly will not do something for Android now.
