It seems that search giant Google is planning to roll out the ability to download Android apps directly from Google search results. This would mean that when you search for an app on the Google search app, you will be taken directly to the install screen rather than Google Play store.
Google is trying out every way to enhance your Android using experience and the latest development would eliminate the need of visiting the Play Store altogether. This would be covered under an update from Google and some users would be lucky to enjoy this update, not all. Previously, if you searched for an app on Google, it redirected to the Play Store from where you were needed to download the application; for now, Google has separated app results from the traditional web results.
As for now, the smartphones getting this update will be able to download an app directly from the Google search wherein searching for an app and selecting it will directly open the app installation permission window, side-lining the Play Store opening process. It should be noted that this update comes only for the searches within the Google app, and not any other browsers as Chrome, Firefox and UC browser, meaning if you search via the other browsers, the process will remain the same as previous and you would be redirected to the Google Play Store in order to download the app.
