Windows 10 'Redstone 4' test build adds diagnostics-delete button

“Downloadable” Websites Or PWAs For Windows 10 Are Coming To Microsoft Store Windows 10 will soon get Progressive Web Apps to boost the Microsoft Store
Doris Mccormick | 09 February, 2018, 03:22

Well-known services and sites such as Flipboard, Twitter and Trivago already have PWAs, and Microsoft says it is whittling down the best web apps for inclusion in the Store from more than 1.5 million candidates.

In addition to giving Windows 10 S users a password-less experience, the latest version of Insider Preview also enables HDR video playback in more computers. The company first made their anti-password goals clear back in 2015 with the release of Windows 10 which launched with the "Windows Hello" facial recognition system for logins. Instead, users will unlock the system through the Authenticator App installed on the user's smartphone.

The company said their Bing Crawler has been working for nearly a year to find quality PWAs on the web which will populate the Store in the coming weeks.

Developers who want to boost the chances of getting their PWAs listed in the Microsoft Store can follow these guidelines, which also includes instructions on how to submit a PWA to the Microsoft Store.

PWAs can be grabbed from the Microsoft Store as an AppX file, and will run in their own sandboxed container, without needing the browser to be open at all. Today's test build allows users to delete that data.

Support for Service Workers has been a part of Microsoft Edge since December 2017, though limited to Windows Insiders.

Some of this may be available widely in Redstone 4, the next major build of Windows 10 rumored for March or April.

In the meantime, Microsoft is aiming to bring support for accessing PWAs right from its Edge browser. Further, it already reviewed almost 1.5 million candidates through which a "small initial set" of PWAs have been identified that will be indexed for Windows 10 users to test the experience over the coming weeks. The engineering team at Microsoft has apparently been using the Bing Crawler to identify PWAs on the Web for almost a year. Make sure it uses the discrete GPU.
