Google starting limited testing of Android Instant Apps

Android Instant Apps was announced at Google I/O last year, and it got quite a bit of attention and quite a few fans. It promised the ability to run compatible apps without downloading them.

Want to read a BuzzFeed article? You can click it in search results and open the app instead of the webpage without an install. Want to easily buy something? Open the app rather than the site and check out easier with Android Pay. It should be a really useful feature if developers can integrate it right.

A limited test of this new feature is finally starting with apps like BuzzFeed, Wish, Periscope, and Viki. The limited test will allow Android users to give this new feature a try and leave feedback. Hopefully it’ll be expanded soon to more apps and users.

Let us know in the comments if you manage to play with it!
