Why instant apps - Image 1

We always hesitate to download a mobile app and install it on our Android smartphones. Because the mobile apps take much time to download and require much space for its storage once, it is installed it on our phones. But it’s annoying when it shows ‘you are running out of space’. Just think that if you want to buy a furniture online and these days every online retailer wants to order on the mobile app only, and for that, you have to install that app and order your desired product. Once the order is done, the app is just laying on your smartphone without using again. In this way, the apps will fill out the internal storage and you will get the irritation of your phone. Now, Google has a solution for this. That is instant apps, which mean that without downloading any app you can use and access all the features.

What is an Instant app?

The instant app is a Google’s new feature that you can use and access to all the features of a mobile app without downloading it completely. It feels so good when you find an app on play store and start using it just by clicking Open App directly without installing it with hundreds of MB. It’s already available for some users and it’s in the beta stage and it will be all available in few days. Recently Google added a Try it now button for some android apps to use instantly. Some updates say that Google’s instant apps to vanish all the apps which are taking much storage space in our smartphones in future. The announcement about the idea of Android Instant App dates back to 2016 at Google I/O developer conference. The mobile experience was made so simple because the main focus was the web.

There were many advantages too:

In future, after the quick mobile app development, we don’t need to buy large storage phones and we don’t need to bother about the app size, our smartphone will never get slow for excess storage, there are many benefits of instant apps. Instant apps provide you with a greater user interaction with the apps, and increases user acquisition, and improves retention. With the help of instant Apps, parking app start-ups offer the feature which enables the user to reach the parking app without the need of installing it. Here, the user just needs to tap the NFC chip, in order to get navigated to the app.

For situational app start-ups, getting people to download their app is one of the biggest challenges they face. Users will be troubled by waiting for downloading the app, and then need to offer greater space in their smartphones. With the help of these instant apps, the E-commerce businesses are affected. Without these Instant apps, shopping process on smartphones using the mobile web pages would have been difficult.


Personally, I see a lot of appeals and hope this is a step toward a ‘no downloads future’. Within the app, we have an option of linking our friends directly to pages, and this will definitely raise the number of people using this instant app. Instants apps are the game-changing idea to make a better availability at any time without installing them. It will change the android app development methods and gives best app development growth.
