Google the tech giant has started rolling out the instants apps. During the developer conference known as the Google’s I/O developer that was held last year, Instant Apps for Android was tagged as a feature that would forever alter the way users use their mobile apps on their mobile devices.
According to the Android Developer blog, it was made known that the feature would be made accessible using a few apps as part of beta testing, through this users can participate in.
What do the phrase Android Instant Apps mean? Through the use of the Instant App feature, users will have an opportunity to download and run apps on their android gadgets such as tablets as well as smartphones. The users can do all this without having to install the apps.
While the users are visiting particular websites, the may come across an invitation to download a mobile app instead of using the website. The app will enable the streamlined mobile device experience to get to access the website content, however, the user can forego the installation process of the app and instead access the browser version of the website.
Through the use of the Instant Apps technology, the Android apps will load immediately on the android devices. While it may not be as fast as accessing the website the whole process will take just a few seconds. This will be much faster compared to downloading the app and installing it first. In order to benefit from this technology the developers will need to update their apps to include this functionality, this is because the Instant Apps utilizes the same technology found in the Android apps.
The feature is opened for limited testing just about 8 months after it was revealed, however, it is opened for the limited testing only. The initial apps to use this feature will be those Periscope, BuzzFeed, Viki as well as Wish. During this testing period, the android team will be collecting feedback from the user who will be taking part in the testing this amazing feature with the aim of expanding to more apps in the near future. There is also the room for the users who are interested in testing the Instant App, all they have to do id access the website of the initial apps offering this feature.
