    In 2018, Google introduced a new format for releasing apps called Android App Bundle. This format helped developers dramatically reduce the size of the APK file, and instead of providing all the functionality of the application at once during installation, the application features are provided only when the user needs them. Now, to further improve the app installation experience for end users and reduce the time to download, open and run apps on Android devices, Google has launched a new project called App install optimization on Google Play. Here are the details of this plan. p

    App install optimization or "optimization" "App installation" is actually an option in Google Play that the user can activate. By activating this option, Google will find out which parts of an application you first access and how you do it after installing it. When more users enable this option, Google can optimize the application so that everyone can install, open and run it faster.

    According to Google, this process does not collect any personal information of users such as their name or email address, and will not be able to access anything beyond that application - such as other applications or content on your device. Also, no information will be collected about the content uploaded or downloaded in the app - such as photos in social feeds or leaderboard rankings - according to Google. All information will be used in the context of Google's privacy policy.

    The data that Google collects from you through App install optimization is combined with data collected from other users and used to find trends and which parts of the application are most important to users. According to Google, in the end, this process will have three main results for users: increase the speed of installing applications from Google Play, reduce the time required to open and run applications, as well as reduce the pressure on the CPU, battery and internal memory of devices.

    It is not bad to give an example to better understand the mechanism of this process. Suppose after installing the Instagram app on your smartphone, you spend the first 10 minutes after installation to create a profile and find your friends. If Google finds that most users do the same thing after installing Instagram from Google Play, it will set the stage for the first Instagram installs to be installed from Google Play on people's devices to create profiles and find friends. Be relevant. p

    Other sections of Instagram - such as the story viewer and the files needed for Instagram Posts - Remain uninstalled until the user decides to use them or their internet signal is stronger. In addition, instead of opening the entire application at once in RAM, your smartphone may load only the parts of the application that you use most. In this way, the amount of RAM used will be reduced and the pressure on the phone's processor will be reduced.

    To enable App install optimization, after opening the Play Store app, tap Settings to select Menu, and then enable App install optimization. Of course, participating in this Google plan is not mandatory for users, and those who do not want to, can go down the same path, disable it. But it is interesting to know that even if this option is disabled, the user can still benefit from the optimizations made by Google by collecting data from other users. Needless to say, this feature cannot be enabled in the Play Store app at this time, but it is mentioned in the latest version of this app (version 24.5.13).
