Run Android Apps Without Installing Them

Android Instant Apps

Another Google I/O announcement. Android Instant Apps is Google’s new game-changing feature which lets you open apps on your phone, without installing them! A user can simply click a link and Google Play will instantly run the app by fetching of the pieces of it the user would need.

What’s great about this, for the end user, is that it removes the hassle of having to go to Google Play to install an app which won’t use regularly. See video below to see how to works.

Android Instant Apps is compatible with devices that are running Jellybean (Android 4.1, API level 16) or higher and have Google Play services installed.

Instant Apps is expected to roll out by the end of the year.
