Google Play Instant will let you try a game without installing it

Android P Will Block Apps Built for Android 4.1 or Lower: Report

For example, the maximum file size for games that can be played instantly is 10MB, an increase from the 2MB maximum size for other apps.

During the last December, Google demands its developers to apps which are one year older should be present in the store.

While it's safe to say that installing an app isn't a big barrier for most mobile users at this point, there's definitely something to be said for letting players experience a game before giving up valuable storage space to a full install. Google Play Instant brings that same kind of immediate software gratification to Android gamers. Well, your wish is Google's command, as Android Instant is now a thing. The concept actually debuted back in 2016, but at the time it was mainly introduced for non-gaming apps including BuzzFeed, Vimeo, and gift-buying service Hollar. After trying out a title, it's easy to install the game by tapping the button. Google Play Instant experiences will be available in the Google Play Store, the Google Play Games app, or wherever game links are shared.

Fargo, all Toys 'R' Us stores to close nationwide
Locally, there is a Toys "R" Us store on Commercial Drive in New Hartford, located right next door to a Babies "R" Us store. Legions of adults who came of age in the 1980s and 1990s can probably still whistle the jingle: "I'm a Toys "R" Us kid".


The results can be pretty impressive. While you try out the game in this mode, you will see a persistent "Install" button which will let you install the full app whenever you want. Allowing them to get a taster of the experience, make a judgement on whether or not it is something they would like to look at further, and are given an option to then download the full application from within the Instant experience.

The new features include a way for Android users to try apps without a complete download. Today you can check out some of the titles from the Instant Gameplay collection. Meanwhile, Demo Loops will help developers test games on live devices in the Test Lab. This is in addition to the current alpha/beta and limited to 100 testers. Google also said game developers would be able to use customized renderings and other data from Maps inside games.

Not all games can be played instantly without downloading them, but there are a few titles with this feature already available. "At this point we are not announcing a date [for the open beta]".
