Android Instant Apps
Android Instant Apps are a new fast and smart way to give people access to content in apps without actually having the apps installed. It allows you to view content/link that you might receive from a friend, in an app even if you don’t have the app installed. For example, if you receive a link that only can be viewed in a specific app which you don’t have, Android will do a temporary download with only the specific modules of the app, which are required to view the link you received. This allows you to only have the apps that you actually use installed on your phone and therefore save space on your phone, instead of having loads of irrelevant apps.
