Google Play has a new dynamic to speed up the download of applications

The Google team implement a new dynamic to make the process of downloading and installing apps on Android faster.

To do this, apply a system that is based on shared user data to prioritize part of the download and optimize the process.

This is how the new Google Play download option will work

Installing an app is as simple as pressing the option in Google Play and waiting for the download and installation process to finish. However, Google wants to further optimize this process to make it much faster and reduce the consumption of resources on the device.

To do this, Google Play implement a system that seeks to learn how users use the app to speed up the download and installation process. So use certain user data. How does this system work and what does it entail?

This dynamic will be launched from a new option called App Install Optimization that will be added to Google Play. If the user activates it (since it will not be enabled by default), it will start an optimization process to speed up the download of the app.

Google can tell you which parts of an application you use the first time you open it after installation. When enough people do this, Google can optimize the application to install, open, and run faster for everyone.

So using the data of the users who activate the option, you can detect the most important parts of the app to prioritize the download for quick execution, and then move on to the rest.

What types of data to collect from users? Google mentions that it does not collect user identification data (name, email) or data outside the application or content related to the download. That is, only collect how users interact the first time they open the app to identify the parts to prioritize in the download.

This feature is not yet available on Google Play at the moment, but should be added shortly. When Google implements this option, you will find it in Settings.
