How To Test Your Internet Speed With Fast.com — Simplest Internet Speed Test By Netflix


Fast.com is a simple internet connection speed test tool launched by Netflix. It tells you the real-time download speeds and gives you a link to compare your results with the famous Ookla’s Speedtest.net. Netflix says that it measures your current download speed by performing a series of downloads from Netflix servers.

Are you tired of your ISP’s deception and the slow internet connection speed? Well, you have an option of checking your connection speed and filing a complaint. To check the internet connection speeds, numerous broadband tests are available and they have their own specialties.

While many of you might be using Ookla’s Speedtest from time to time, Netflix is here with the simplest internet connection speed test ever called fast.com. They also give the option to compare your results with Ookla internet connection speed test.

As you visit the newly released service, you see a minimal interface that just measures your internet service provider’s download speed. After a few seconds of the test, the results are right in front of you in huge digits.

Unlike Ookla’s test, fast.com shows no ads and is designed by Netflix to check your download speeds if you are facing any streaming issues with your ISP.

How to take Fast.com internet connection speed test?

As I earlier said, you just need to visit Fast.com and your test automatically starts. If you want to check the internet connection speed once more, you need to hit the reload button and the test starts again.

Fast.com measures your current download speed by performing a series of downloads from Netflix servers. “This consumer speed test is different than our Netflix ISP Speed Index. Fast.com measures your personal Internet connection at any given time,” the Netflix website writes.

Earlier in May, Netflix also introduced a tool to help the users control how much data they use.

Fast.com vs Ookla Speedtest.net results:

I decided to take both Fast.com and Ookla Speedtest and there was a surprising difference between those. While Speedtest.net recorded a download speed of 40-60 Mbps, Fast.com’s result  was stuck around 10 Mbps.


Go ahead, take the both internet connection speed tests,

Google’s Android Instant Apps — Use Them In Your Browser Without Installing


Android Instant Apps are being called the next big thing that can revolutionize mobile experience. To be launched by the end of this year, one will be able to launch the Instant Apps with just a click on a URL, use the specific portion of that app, and forget about it. This functionality will save space and time, making our app experience as seamless as browsing a web page.

At its I/O developer conference, Google announced many new products and services. The company even surprised everybody by launching a website to submit suggestions for the name of next version of Android i.e. Android N.

From the same platform, Google showed off a new approach to native Android apps that allows you to use apps without installing them on your Android device. This allows developers to take advantage of the modules of applications without actually using them.

What are Android Instant Apps?
Android Instant Apps are being developed to blur the lines between a mobile app and a web app. This feature will be rolled out slowly to the users, but Google wants you to rethink the concept of mobile apps.

While downloading an application takes some time and storage space, Instant Articles run simply by clicking on a URL.

Google says that the idea behind Instant Apps is to make the app experience as simple as surfing a website. In future, you’ll visit an app via a web page, perform the desired action, and never think about it again.


To enable this feature, developers need to break their apps into smaller modules that can start within few seconds. Instead of rewriting the app from scratch, they can use the existing source code and implement the Instant App support within a day, according to Google.

In its I/O demo, the Google presenter showed different apps like Buzzfeed and B&H with Instant App ability and completed the tasks in seconds without installing any app.

In the demo, Google used a device running Android 4.4 KitKat. It’s expected that Google will allow the Instant Apps to run on any device running Android Jellybean or newer.

The tech giant is expected to roll out the Instant Apps by the end of 2016.
