Here is how you can enable and use Android Instant Apps

Last year, Google made waves by announcing its exciting feature for its mobile operating system dubbed Instant Apps. The idea behind Android Instant Apps is to close the gap between web apps and native apps. In other words, Instant Apps allows you to open a native app by simply tapping on a URL, eliminating the need to install it from the Google Play Store.


Instant Apps is one of the most anticipated features for Android and Google is finally rolling out it, but only to select smartphones running Android 7.1.1 or newer and apps. In this guide, we will walk you through the steps to enable and use Instant Apps.

  1. Steps to enable Instant Apps on your Android device

Step one: First and foremost, you need to launch the Settings app on your device. Once you are in, all you need to do is to tap Google under the Personal section

Step two: Next up, head to the Services category and select Instant Apps to proceed

Step three: Once you are done, all you need to do is to tap on the toggle on the top-right of the screen and tap Yes, I’m in

Once you are done, you are now ready to use Instant Apps. If you are struggling to use the feature, read on.
