Android Instant Apps - Cookie API Sample

This sample app demonstrates how to use the Cookie API.

It contains storage and retrieval of values using both, the Android Framework API and the InstantApps Play Services API.


This API is available to both, the Instant App as well as the Installed App, and allows to migrate user-generated data from an instant app to an installed app.

The flow for this API is as follows:

  1. Check whether the cookie fits the allowance.
  2. Store data within the instant app.
  3. Retrieve data from the installed app.

This API is available for API 26 or higher via PackageManager and for API levels lesser than 26 via PackageManagerCompat.

Build Variants

This sample has two build variants:

  • framework -> Android 8.0 (API level 26) or higher
  • playServices -> Any API level

The two build variants provide the same features, but one uses the Framework API whereas the other one uses the InstantApps Play Services API.

Testing the API with this sample

  1. Run the application by checking the "deploy as instant app" in the run configuration
  2. Store some data
  3. Run the application by unchecking the "deploy as instant app" in the run configuration
  4. Retrieve the data stored earlier
