Google Play Instant lets you try games before installing them

Instant Games will operate with a smaller portion of the app that can allow users to get a feel for the game before committing. This should be an easy choice. iTunes lets anyone switch their App Store country relatively easily, but Google makes you jump through several hoops and. just hope for the best. Google noted in its blog post that the number of Android users who installed a game in the previous year has more than doubled.

"Try before you buy" is coming to the world of Android games, with Google Inc. launching a new feature that allows games to be run without the need for them to be downloaded.

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.

When speaking about Instant games, Google's Jonathan Karmel and Benjamin Frenkel said they initially placed a 2MB limit on file sizes, but they later increased this limit to 10MB.

We think that it is a great program that can result in helping users save significant data costs as they will not have to download the entire game only to find that it does not meet their expectation. In addition, the Google Play Games app gives players the ability to learn more about their favorite games, including Words With Friends 2 and Solitaire, with related news and content. Just tap the "Install now!" button to install the game. Video adverts are infecting Google Play.

As of now only few game developers have adopted the Instant Play on their games.

The demos have already started to translate into more downloads for game developers. Google Play app is now getting new features in the latest update. A new Arcade tab has been added to view trailers and games with specific tags. There is also the users that are not even willing to test a new game because they have to install it first.
