    Why isn't Flash Player a 1-Step Process to Install?

      Like how Spotify updates upon re-open of the program.

          It depends on the browser. 

           

          Flash Player is a built-in component of Google Chrome and Internet Explorer on Windows 8 and higher.  Neither requires a separate download or update.

           

          For other browsers, building, maintaining and distributing Flash Player to 1.2 billion users is a tremendously expensive undertaking for a product that we offer free of charge.  We provide bundled offers with the downloads as a cost-recovery mechanism, which adds some friction to the installation process.
