How do Android Instant Apps Work?
Moreover, Android instant apps can be useful for users who don't intend to keep an app on their mobiles for long. For example, if a user travels to a new town and uses a taxi app there once or twice, they don't need to install the full app on their mobiles.
Best part? Instant apps don't take a lot of space, as end users do not install them.
Instant apps development can bring a number of benefits. Below are just some of them:
Instant Apps are widely used by retail sites, mobile game developers, real-estate sites, taxi and city guide sites, and many more.
How Do Instant Apps Work?
Android users can access an instant app by following a URL. When Google Play receives a request for a URL, it looks up for an instant app that matches it. After it identifies such an app, Google Play sends the necessary code file (only the part of the app that is associated with the requested URL) to the user's mobile device. The device automatically opens the file and runs the app. Once you close the window, it disappears.
How to Create an Instant App for Android
From a developer's perspective, instant apps are easy to create and don't require additional skills. The development process of instant apps doesn't differ much from building a traditional app. On top of that, it's pretty simple to turn a native application into an instant app for Android. So there is no need to create a new and separate app. A skilled developer can update your app to an instant app within a day or two.
