Hi, it is possible to add apk file to “res” and install it when the game is started (if it is not installed before), in the background (hiding install progress)?

Your question is very shady… Possible…but shady

So how to do that?

You should not try to manually install an APK unless you are specifically trying to distribute software. What are you really trying to achieve?

Complicated, just how can I do such a thing?

Additionally newer versions of android and Google’s Play Protect requires that you identify an app’s installation source prior to the installation so on such devices the end user still has to verify that slipstream installation

I don’t using google play store

I cannot think of a legitimate reason why you would want to do that, what are you actually trying to achieve?
