Here is how you can easily enable instant apps for Google Play Store on any Android-powered smartphone or tablet. Google Play Store Instant Apps became part of the Android operating system starting from Nougat 7.0 update. “Instant Apps“, as the name implies, provides users with easy access to certain sections of the OS. There is no need to connect your Android device with a computer to customize a particular part of the software. For those who don’t know what Instant Apps is all about, here is a brief overview of its functions.
What is Google Instant Apps – And What Is Its Use?
Google Instant Apps are very much like portable software which allows users to carry it around on a portable storage device and connect to the computer for use anywhere in the world.
So if you download an app from the Play Store, with the Instant Apps enabled, you will be able to use them without needing your smartphone.
Basically, the Instant Apps function loads a small fragment of an app onto your Android phone. This small file size saves mobile data when installing it over a network carrier or WiFi connection, besides it reduces the time required to set up the app.
To make use of Google Play Store Instant Apps, developers have to create a separate, smaller version of their applications. Instant Apps take up fewer system resources and bandwidth to run on mobile phones. This feature is useful when the device is linked to a slow internet connection and there is a desperate need to use an application. It saves time that would otherwise be wasted in loading a heavier version of the app on a shoddy network connection.
On Android Nougat or later firmware versions, you can easily enable this feature. See the steps below on how to enable it.
