Microsoft is planning on bringing Progressive Web Apps to Windows 10 and Edge browser. PWA is a web app that provides experience as native app. It is a fresh web technology that makes websites work better offline or with very little internet connection.
This also means that you can get notification without installing the app package itself. Microsoft is also planning on bringing PWAs to Microsoft Store, which is the renamed version of Windows Store. Microsoft engineers are working on crawling and indexing features for PWA to use it for Microsoft store.
“Over the coming months, we’ll be ramping up our automatic indexing in the Microsoft Store from a few initial candidates to a broader sample. Throughout this process, we’ll continue to vet our quality measures for PWAs, to make sure we’re providing a valuable, trustworthy, and delightful experience to our mutual customers on Windows devices,” stated the Microsoft team.
Previously, Microsoft had been using Universal Windows Platform (UWP) for the web application and are not planning on completely ditching it after bringing in Progressive Web Apps. PWA is a best solution for making their apps available on all kinds of platforms. The developers of the company are also working on new products that are soon to be launched to make the user experience even better.
