Google plans to improve Progressive Web Apps in the next beta version of Chrome, a change that will give the apps far more functionality than they currently enjoy. Google has been experimenting with Progressive Web Apps since 2015. The apps are rooted in the Chrome browser, rather than the Android OS itself, and have until now been limited in scope. For example, Progressive Web Apps could only exist on the Android home screen. Google says the new Progressive Web Apps can appear in the app drawer section of the launcher, as well as be managed via the device's settings. Progressive Web Apps will be able to receive incoming intents from other apps, and support full Android notifications (rather than Chrome notifications). Google said it hopes to eventually enable Progressive Web Apps for all browsers that function on Android. The new beta build of Chrome with Progressive Web Apps in tow is expected to become available in the days ahead.
