Google Play Store now lets you try out apps before downloading

You can now try out select Android apps without downloading them first.

Android users now have a way to instantly try out apps without installing them first.

Google announced "Android Instant Apps" at its 2016 developer conference and made it available to all developers this May. Accessible via a "Try It Now" button, Instant Apps work by your simply tapping a URL.

The small selection of Instant Apps available now includes the NY Times Crossword, Red Bull and Skyscanner.
