Android Instant Apps allows users to try out apps without the hassle of actually installing them. Instant Apps work by breaking down a native app into small parts, which can be loaded faster and downloaded, then executed quickly. It displays the UI screen for an app, and as soon as it is closed, it is removed without being installed in the first place.
now, Google has announced that Android Instant Apps are available in the Play Store with a prominent Try Now button that is displayed alongside the Install button.
Currently, there are very few apps which support the Android Instant Apps capability, but this feature has the potential to be popular for blind and low vision users downloading apps from the Play Store allowing users to test the accessibility of the apps without commitments. It can also be useful for budget devices which have a low amount of storage (16GB or less), and will definitely prove useful in situations where data connectivity is not optimal (as the full app doesn’t have to be downloaded to the phone).
