Google Is Making Apps Very Similar To Websites, What This Means For Android
Google has just unveiled to the public the latest Chrome Beta. And with it, the company had given progressive web apps a privilege.
These progressive web apps are websites that are very similar to how apps work. An example of this is Flipkart Lite, which is a website. Try to open it using the new Android Chrome beta version. You will then see that there is an "add to home screen" button.
If you choose it, it will then get added to your app page or home screen. You will also gain access in controlling the notifications that are found in the controls of the notification system of Android devices.
The Future Of Apps And Websites
According to Engadget, these progressive web apps are using the newest HTML and internet features that are said to help in making them more reliable, speedy and more interactive. This is done with the help of service workers that are the one that caches the important resources.
When this is done properly, the app loads faster and would not depend on any internet connection for it to be usable. It is also said that these progressive web apps feel natural to the senses as it also has its own distinct user experience that immerses its user.
Progressive Web Apps Are Challenging To Make
According to The Verge, as of the meantime, these progressive web apps are still not widely used as this requires an enormous amount of effort on the part of the developers. It is also important to know that these are not the same with the instant apps that enable the user to open the app itself.
Whichever the case is, Google is indeed doing its best to improve the user experience and make its subjects become more interactive and captivating.
