Google Play Instant lets you try games without having to download them first

Last year Google introduced Instant Apps, which lets you try out an app without installing anything. Today, the company has brought the tech to games and introduced Google Play Instant, which means you can now tap and try a game without having to download and install it first.

You can experience Google Play Instant through the Google Play Store, the Google Play Games app, or wherever game links are shared. More specifically, the redesigned Google Play Games app is gaining a new ‘Arcade’ tab, which will highlight the current crop of Instant games as well as letting you check out game video trailers or use tags like “New” or “Action” to find a particular type of game. You’ll also find supported titles (only six at the moment) in the Instant Gameplay collection section in the Google Play Store.

According to TechCrunch, this project is currently a closed beta, but Google plans to open it up to more developers later this year. Google is also saying that we should “check back later this year as more games become available.”
