Is it possible to try out an app on my live store without customers seeing it?

I know with theme edits you can duplicate the theme and work on the unpublished version, but apps aren't tied to themes. It's either installed & enabled, or deleted. I'm hoping there's a workflow I'm missing that will make editing my store less stressful lol.

My website is live and I want to be able to try out apps and take my time setting them up, then make them "live" when I'm ready. Right now, my website would become unstable as I add and remove features, mess with things, potentially confusing customers and rendering my site inoperable.

Is there any way to install an app on my store, and work on it in an unpublished state? I'd hate to have to turn off my store whenever I want to experiment with something.

Thanks!

OH YIKES just found out that deleting apps don't necessarily remove them from your store. Staging environment is more important than ever! Trying out apps can be pretty destructive! Liable to break my store at any moment
