A progressive web app is an application software that is delivered via the web.
Progressive web apps (PWAs) are web applications that are built on web pages or websites, but appear like traditional apps / mobile apps. PWAs combine features from modern browsers with the benefit of a mobile experience. Users can access all the information and capabilities without downloading a mobile app. Instead app-like experiences are delivered to users, right in their browsers.
PWAs use a number of specific technologies to allow them to take advantage of both web and native app features. An app can be considered a PWA if it works offline, is installable, can send notifications and is easy to synchronize. PWAs don’t depend on a single API, but instead use multiple technologies to deliver the best web experience possible.
PWAs are more discoverable – as it is easier and faster to visit a website than install an app.
