Google is Bringing Instant Apps to Games on Android

Android P may start blocking apps from running if they target older APIs

That allowed users to access certain features, such as a purchase through a retail app, without actually installing it.

The Google Play Instant feature can be found in the "Arcade" tab in the Google Play Games app as "Instant Gameplay". Google said it plans to provide other game developers with the Instant Apps framework later this year, which should translate into more Instant titles available on Google Play.

They also explained that Google Play Instant removes some of the friction involved in convincing people to download games.

Navratilova paid 10 times less than McEnroe for Wimbledon
In January, BBC News senior editor Carrie Gracie quit her job to protest what she saw as systemic pay inequality at the company. The series is part of Panorama: Britain's Equal Pay Scandal , and Navratilova's interview airs in the United Kingdom tonight.

Called Google Play Instant, it essentially adds the ability for app developers to include an native experience demo, created using the same code as the main app which is faster for users to download and play. Users can also check news and YouTube videos related to their favorite games.

From the point of view of a developer, the initiative will help them solve the in-game analytics which now goes unhindered when a game is quickly uninstalled by the user.

Having said that, there aren't a lot many games that support Play Instant right now as Play Instant is still in closed beta with Google planning to open it "more broadly later this year".

Premier League Review - Matchday 31
Manchester City remain 13 points clear at the top of the Premier League table after a reduced programme in Week 31. The prolific goalscorer is also on course to break the record of Premier League goals in a season.

According to Google, on game listings that support Instant, you'll be able to hit a button and begin trying out the game before you commit to downloading it. Even at 10MB, though, Instant games are small compared to full-version downloads.

If you happen to like the game after playing the trial version, you can simply install the game by tapping the "Install Now" button on the top-left corner in the gameplay. We're thrilled to announce that instant apps is now available for games.

For now, there are a limited number of titles that are compatible with Google Play Instant, but it's a number that's sure to grow over time. It was problematic, especially for newer, graphically demanding games, as installing them involved downloading at least a gigabyte worth of data.
