Developers from XDA Developers reported on the future function of Android, which the operating system will borrow from modern consoles or PCs. We are talking about launching games from the app store while they are still being downloaded.
The correct name for this feature is incremental file system. It allows you to run large games by downloading only part of the content, and while the gamer is playing, the rest of the information is loaded in the background.
According to the source, Google is currently testing this feature on its Google Pixel 4 XL smartphones, and the full launch of the feature is planned only by 2021 — that is, by the release of Android 12.
