Hi,
Will it be possible in the future to implement a feature which allows to generate and install apk files from within the C3 editor on Android devices ?
Thanks.

Yes, the build system should return APKs: https://www.scirra.com/blog/187/building-mobile-apps-in-construct-3

On an early version of the build system, Iain did manage to run a build on an Android device, and install and run the APK that came back. (You have to enable unknown sources on the phone.) So yes, you should be able to build your game as an APK and run it as an APK, all from an Android device.
