Tired of downloading games only to realize they suck? Google Play Instant might mean never doing that again.

We talked about Android Instant Apps last year: the feature lets users try an app out before downloading it. This week a couple of games are joining the platform. Frederic Lardinois, writing for TechCrunch:

You can now see what playing a level or two of Clash Royale, Final Fantasy XV: A New Empire or Panda Pop is like without having to go through the usual install procedure. Instead, you simply head for the Google Play store, find a game that supports this feature, and hit the “Try now” button.

Eventually Google Play will have an entire section of games you can start playing immediately, which will make finding something to play a lot easier. For now you can try this feature out by tapping the “Try Now” button for Clash Royal or Final Fantasy XV: A New Empire.
