Windows 10 ALERT - Brand new feature launching that you may find ESSENTIAL

Clutter-free Printing

Microsoft has just released a new Windows 10 Spring Creators Update Preview build to Fast ring PC Insiders. Now that plan is becoming a reality, with Microsoft giving users a preview of PWAs and breaking down its strategy to bring them to the Microsoft Store. The company first made their anti-password goals clear back in 2015 with the release of Windows 10 which launched with the "Windows Hello" facial recognition system for logins.

"Now, we are expanding HDR video access to more users via new functionality via Settings Apps Video playback". The main events are some new graphics options and, for Windows 10 S users, a way to go completely password free.

PWAs are already supported in the Chrome and Firefox browsers, on desktops and mobiles, and will be supported in Windows 10's Edge following the Redstone 4 update.

Following the next Windows 10 update, codenamed "Redstone 4", the Microsoft Store will start listing the PWAs inside the Microsoft Store, with Microsoft getting ready to add what it considers to be the best PWAs to the Store. The firm has already combed through some 1.5 million web apps to pick out a small selection of PWAs for initial testing. It will run in its own sandboxed area as an AppX file, doing away with the need for an open browser.

Developers will also be able to submit their Progressive Web Apps to the Store.

Microsoft was quick to say that it isn't abandoning UWP apps, explaining that "the Universal Windows Platform fully embraces Progressive Web Apps". Microsoft engineers are beginning some experiments with crawling and indexing quality PWAs from the Web over the coming weeks to list them in the Microsoft Store. This means you can get notifications or interact with various Web-powered features, without installing any app package on your system. These apps are built on or optimized by web technologies like Cache API, Fetch networking, Push notifications, Service Worker, and Web App Manifest. Microsoft has scheduled Build 2018 developer conference for May 7-9 and the conference will be held at Seattle same as past year.

In a blog post, the Microsoft team revealed that they have been using the Bing Crawler to search out and review PWAs that they're thinking ofoffering in the app store.

Microsoft recommends that devs who want to differentiate their product on each platform develop native apps, rather than PWAs, but also stresses the cost and time savings of building a single PWA to run across all platforms.
