One of the things that you probably like least when buying a new phone is installing all the applications you had on your old smartphone. This is one of the things that annoys me the most when trying a new device because I have to wait for at least 30 applications to download to the phone before I can use it.

In the Mountain View offices it seems that they have realized that this is a problem for some users, so apparently they are already working on a new function that will aim to speed up the download of applications, this isegún lo reporting from XDA-Developers.

It’s not just about installing faster, but about installing what matters most first

According to the North American media, the people of Google have been working on a function called “Instal hints”, which aims to stop installing the applications of a new device randomly, that is, what would happen with this tool is that First, the applications that users use the most would be installed on their phone.

An example of the above would be WhatsApp, because in a new configuration, WhatsApp is probably one of the last to be installed, which prevents you from using the app until the configuration is finished, however, if it is one of your most used apps it will be installed first and you can use it while the rest of the applications finish installing on your device.

On the other hand, it is also mentioned that within this new function parameters could be established so that the download of applications is faster when we configure a new phone, although here it will also depend to a great extent on our Internet connection.

The downside is that these things will only apply to new phones or those that are reset to factory settings and reconfigured.

Another detail that XDA Developers make very clear is that this function could both arrive in a monthly update, such as waiting until the launch of Android 12, and it could even be one of those features that despite being interesting never ends up reaching the final version of Android.
