Looks like Google’s figured it out: free trials for games from the Google Play Store will soon grace your Android handset.

Announced at Google Developer Day, the new service will be called “Search Trial Run Ads” and launch in a few weeks. It will let you stream a game right from the search results page in the Google Play app, letting Android gamers try out new titles before buying.
