Microsoft has recently announced that the Progressive Web Apps is coming soon to the Windows Store and it will be available for Windows 10 devices. The Progressive Web Apps uses the latest web technologies and it is installable like an app. The PWAs looks just like the traditional mobile apps and it will be able to fill the app gap to some extent.

Microsoft Teams is one of the first apps that would soon hit the Windows Store. It appears that with the Windows 10 Redstone 4 update, the full-featured Progressive Web Apps will be launched for the operating system. The update is coming next spring and it will have the solution to the app gap.

Microsoft’s Senior Program Manager Kirupa Chinnathambi has confirmed that the next major Windows 10 release will carry the Progressive Web Apps support. Microsoft is however already planning to release the early version of PWAs and it could be tested in Microsoft Edge browser.

Windows 10 will receive the full-feature PWAs with the Redstone 4 update. The Windows Insider will be able to get the PWAs before the public release. On the other hand, Microsoft hasn’t confirmed whether PWA will be supported by Windows 10 Mobile, although it should, however, as Windows 10 Mobile is not the company’s priority, the support is still uncertain.
