How to Enable Instant Apps and How to use them in Android Nougat

Now that we have devices running on Android 7.0, it’s time to move over the traditional formula of installing apps before using them. Android Nougat provides users with the option of using instant apps on the latest Android edition. Instant apps are those which can be used on Android mobiles without being downloaded.

This involves downloading the app on a temporary basis, through a shared link or using it on the web. This does not change your experience of the app, as this version is not optimized for the web, and is instead a broken down version which will install when needed, and then get deleted later. Users will continue to get access to all the key features and design aspects.
