Android is showing an Adobe app in the sharing menu and "Open with" dialog as if it's installed but will install it when I click on it.

Is this a new perk of advertising with Google Play? Is Adobe paying money to place an ad right in Android?

Blame Microsoft not Google

This clearly is a violation of monetisation and ads policy as stated in the blog. See Google Play Content Policies
