 ANDROID NEWS

Android will let you try games without installing them thanks to Search Trial Run Ads

Power of the cloud

We don't often cover software updates here on Pocket Gamer but I thought this was newsworthy. Android just announced at GDC that it will soon let all Android users try apps directly from a search result without installing it.

Running via a streaming API, you'll just have to hit the "Try Now" button when you search for an app and you should be all set.

Here's what it looks like:



You'll be limited to the first ten minutes of the game but this is rather neat and a new way for developers to communicate about their apps.

Of course, since it uses a lot of bandwidth, this will restricted to Wi-Fi only.

You should see it pop up on your Android phone and tablet soon.
