Imagine a world where you can use any Android app without actually the need to download or even install it on your smartphone. No installation required. Just tap the URL and the apps open even if the user doesn’t have the full app installed.
This is the world the god of the network intend to offer you … the world called instant App!
Google realized that downloading an app is a real pain in the ass sometimes when you don’t want to install the complete app on your smartphone.
Announced at Google I/O event on Wednesday, Android Instant Apps will break down the walls between websites and Android apps by allowing people to tap on a URL and open an Android app instantly, without even having to install it.
If you close an Instant App, it’s essentially gone. It technically lives on in your cache for a few hours.
It will be available for Android users later this year, and the good news is that Instant app features will work on Android 4.2 Jellybean and later.
This is why Android rules the system! If you are not on Android, you are wrong.
