Google is expanding its "instant apps" concept to mobile games to allow for lightning-fast previews of popular titles. The latest update version is 2.2.118 in the Google Play Store. In a post on the Android Developers blog, the company said that the number of Android users who have installed games has more than doubled within the previous year. Instead of wasting time downloading and installing a new title - and giving it permissions access - Google Play Instant lets you play without even installing.
Google Play Instant is slated to open up to more developers later this year. It may be possible to store the data in RAM on some higher end devices, but none of the now available Instant games do so. We're thrilled to announce that instant apps is now available for games. Just tap the "Install now!" button to install the game.
Russian monitors report election irregularities
Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny says he boycotted the presidential election and advises other Russians to do the same. In Moscow , the voting will start nine hours later, at 5:00 am GMT, and proceed until the polls close at 8:00 pm [17:00 GMT].
"Everything we've done on Play and Android to support game developers is being extended to several Google products", Purnima Kochikar, who leads business development for Google's Play app store, said in an interview. Amazon and Facebook Inc are also holding workshops for developers at the conference as they vie for increased advertising and licensing revenue.
It is limited to the aforementioned developers right now, but Google plans to offer it to more soon.
Accusation of Putin role in poisoning is shocking
British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said Britain's quarrel was not with the Russian people but with the Kremlin. The United States, France and Germany also condemned Russian Federation over the attack.
The list of games that are available under the Google Play Instant section on Play Store is now limited but big titles like Clash Royale and Final Fantasy are already available to try through the new service on Play Store. The app still serves as a home to jump into all your games, but Google's Benjamin Frenkel says that Play Games is more meant to "focus on curated content and have a stronger editorial voice". New tags like "New" or "Action" make it easier to find a particular type of game.
For now, instant apps will only be available to a select group of game developers as part of a closed beta program. While you can only play a portion of the game like this, you'll come across plenty of prompts to download the full app if you're so inclined.
