Google wants deep integration of its Progressive Web Apps with Android

For years progressive web apps have been under Google’s consideration but never got fully integrated with Android. But now Google is working towards changing the whole scenario. The search giant made an announcement on Chromium Blog that now its progressive web apps will be integrated into Android. The update related to this whole new experience will be releasing in few weeks. This new version will enable the users to add progressive web apps to their home screen. Once these PWAs are saved on the home screen, Chrome will deeply integrate it into Android. These progressive web apps will also be added to the app drawer and will receive the same notification options which native apps currently have, along with receiving all the intents from other apps. As posted in Chromium Blog, “This new Add to Home screen feature is one more step in our journey to empower developers to build the best possible experience for their users, and we are committed to ensuring the same mechanisms for installing Progressive Web Apps are available to all browsers on Android.”
