Google Play Instant

Native Android apps, without the installation

With Google Play Instant, people can tap to try an app or game without installing it first. Increase engagement with your Android app and gain more installs by surfacing your instant app across the Play Store, Google Search, social networks, and anywhere you share a link.

Google Play Instant is open to all app and game developers.

Get started

Access from anywhere

People can get to your flagship Android experience from any URL—including search, social media, messaging, and other deep links—without needing to install your app first.

Upgrade your existing app

Instant app functionality is an upgrade to your existing Android app, not a new, separate app. Use the same Android APIs, the same project, and the same source code.

Android Studio provides the tools you need to modularize your app so that users load only the portion of the instant app that they need, when they need it.

To get started building an instant app, download Android Studio and install the Instant apps Development SDK.

Works on the latest Android devices

Google Play Instant supports all Android devices running Android 5.0 (API level 21) or higher.
