Works on the Latest Android Devices

Android Instant Apps supports the latest Android devices from Android 6.0 (API level 23) through Android O, across more than 40 countries. We'll be rolling out to more devices and countries soon, including expanding support to Android 5.0 (API level 21) devices shortly.

Upgrade Your Existing App

Android Instant Apps functionality is an upgrade to your existing Android app, not a new, separate app. It's 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 version 3.0 and install the Instant Apps Development SDK.
