Google started fiddling with app streamingabout a year ago via searches in the Google app, but only for a few specific apps. Then, we spotted some evidence of app streaming in a Play Store teardowna couple months ago. It looks like this feature has started rolling out today, allowing you to stream games to try before you buy. One AP staffer in addition to our tipster has this option available already, but it's a little buggy.
App streaming in the Play Store will be used to offer limited time trials of paid content (apparently just games right now). If this feature is available, a button will show up next to the purchase option that reads "Try Now." Tap that, and the game will begin streaming. Importantly, this is only a 10-minute trial. We've seen some crashes with game streaming, but it does successfully stream—see the screens. It's working with Ticket to Ride , and probably more games.
