Try Before You Buy? Now You Can With Android


Ever wanted a try a mobile game out before having to install or even buy it? Well, Google’s got you covered with a whole new search feature that will let you demo a game before you ever go into the Google Play Store.

It’s actually a new ad feature announced today with the very un-sexy title of “search trial run ads” announced today as part of GDC 2016. These will let you play a game for up to 10 minutes, which is generally plenty of time to let you decide if you want it or not.

Available starting in the coming weeks, you simply type in the title of the game through Google search on your smartphone, and a “try now” button should appear under the listing.

Clicking the button should launch the game without actually requiring you to download it, though you will need to be on a Wi-Fi to play the 10-minute demo.
