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

Last year, Google had come up with a remarkable up-gradation on the Play Store by bringing Instant Apps support. "We're excited to work with Google in reimagining the iconic gameplay of our Words With Friends 2 and Solitaire titles for more than 1 billion Android players around the world in a seamless, free-to-play experience".

Instant apps are Google's solution. The preview shows the warnings when the old apps are opened.

This is very much useful if the game is large in size, because if you download and install a large game on your device and end up disliking it, it will be a waste of your mobile/Wi-Fi data.

Now the Instant Gameplay section includes only a handful of titles like Clash Royale, Words With Friends 2, and Final Fantasy XV: A New Empire. The latest update version is 1.0.0.1662 which brings mainly improvements to the app. Set games will have a lightning bolt and "Play" icon underneath the title and then your game will load nearly instantly.

"With all the great games available on Google Play, we want to make discovery easier and remove friction during the install process". Bigger games like Final Fantasy only let you fight a single monster in a blank hallway, which seems to have little to do with the primary city-building gameplay. Interestingly, there are a few games that are a part of this service right now.

Called Just a Line, the app essentially lets you draw white lines in the air and then share your creation with a short video.

Accessing the Google Instant Play games is pretty straightforward. Instant apps can also be useful to getting reluctant friends hooked on the same game. That being said this is just the first batch of games and we are pretty sure that Google will add a lot more in the future.

Google is keen to develop augmented reality (AR) technology, and this is why it is constantly funding and pushing new AR experiments.
