Google Chrome 89 is now live, and the company has started warning developers to offer offline experiences for installable PWAs. This will become mandatory with Chrome 93 later this year.
Microsoft is continuing to make improvements on its new Chromium-based Edge browser. Now, if you install a PWA from the app, it will show up in the top level of the Start Menu instead of a folder.
Today, Microsoft announced the general availability of PWABuilder 2.0. The new web app includes a Feature Store, which provides code snippets that you can copy and paste into your Progressive Web App.
In the next feature update to Windows 10, Microsoft is going to allow users to download Progressive Web Apps from directly within the Edge browser, with a button in the URL textbox.
At a session at its Build 2018 developer conference, Microsoft announced some new features that are going to be available for Progressive Web Apps in the next feature update to Windows 10, Redstone 5.
It appears that the first wave of Progressive Web Apps (PWA) has hit the Microsoft Store, with more than a dozen PWAs now available. More apps will likely make their way soon as well.
According to a report, Microsoft has begun testing the PWA version of its Slack competitor in the Microsoft Store. An alpha version of the Hosted Web App (HWA) is being tested with select users.
In a blog post today, Microsoft confirmed the details of its plan to bring Progressive Web Apps to Windows 10 with the next feature update to the OS. They'll be available through the Microsoft Store.
