Android P may start blocking apps from running if they target older APIs

Developed exclusively for Google's instant apps platform, Android players can now enjoy an install-free way to engage with their favorite Word and Solitaire games anytime and anywhere, with just a tap of the "try it now" button.

"To make it even easier to dive right in and enjoy new apps and games on Android devices, we're introducing Google Play Instant".

Last year, Google had come up with a remarkable up-gradation on the Play Store by bringing Instant Apps support. These apps consume less space and are less data hungry.

You can also check out all the eligible games on Play Store itself under the tab "Instant Gameplay".

For now, there are a handful of games available such as Clash Royale, Words with Friends 2, Bubble Witch 3 Saga and more. We're thrilled to announce that instant apps is now available for games.

Google has launched a new AR app that's both simple to use and fun. In a post on the Android Developers blog, the company said that the number of Android users who have installed games has more than doubled within the a year ago.

Curious whether an Android game is worth the download? Instant apps do not need to be installed on the device, but they offer the full experience of a conventional mobile game. While the game mechanics are the same for full-version downloads and Instant games, the latter restrictions the amount of time a user can spend playing.

Google also promises that the video ads will use machine learning to ensure their relevance, so you should only get videos for stuff that's similar to the apps you already use.

Instant apps required changes to the Java-based Android SDK, but now with a games version, Google is juggling changes to the NDK and game engines like Unity. Moreover, Google is also bundling gameplay videos and news related to the gaming title in question.
