Last week, Google declared a bunch of alterations in its app store, Google Play. The major change is the roll out of Android Instant Apps that were rolled out last year by Google at the time of its IO conference.
Instant Apps operate on Google servers as an alternative to the device. This not only assists to save time but also storage and internet data. Consumers can experience the app totally prior to downloading it.
“We are also eager to incorporate Android Instant Apps with the new button of ‘Try it Now’ on listings of the store. With a single click, users can jump right into the experience of the app without downloading,” claimed director of product management for Google Play Apps & Games, Vineet Buch, to the media in an interview.
Most of the Instant Apps are noticeable in the Google Play app store below the section of “Apps to Try Now.” On the other hand, in India, the option of “Try it Now” is still not obtainable. The apps only showcase the option of “Install.”
The list comprises apps such as NYTimes – Crossword, Skyscanner – Flights, Hotels and Car Hire, Tasty, BuzzFeed: News, Onefootball – Football scores, Quizzes, ShareTheMeal – Help Children, and Red Bull TV: Live Sports, Music & Entertainment.
In January this year, Google began real-world trial of its feature for Instant Apps. At that time, the restricted trial comprised apps from Wish, BuzzFeed, Viki, and Periscope.
The search major has also refreshed its section of Editor’s Choice in 17 nations. The refreshed design follows with a new house for Games comprising screenshots and trailers. “We have rolled out an enhanced house for games with screenshots and trailers of gameplay and 2 new browse targets are arriving soon. ‘Premium’ (for paid games) and ‘New’ (for trending and upcoming games),” claimed Buch to the media.
In addition to this, the firm is extending “live operations” banners on the Play Store to allow consumers know about huge in-game events in well-liked games downloaded on their gadgets. New features on console for developers of Google Play were also declared.
