Android Instant Apps

OK, if this is not so new it is at least unexpected. From my side, at least.

We've had applets, Silverlight, and the myriad of JavaScript frameworks and libraries. However, the way Android apps are evolving seems rather interesting. I guess this is how apps were supposed to work. The "runner" downloads just the portion required to work.

Sounds like a hybrid between an HTML and mobile app. Let's see if and how will it work. Exciting to try to enable this in some existing apps and get out of the cycle of committing changes, merging, compiling, publishing, and waiting for beta testers to run the app for a while, and then the regular users to update. And some of them never do.
