Microsoft and Google join forces to boost web apps on the Play Store

Presented some time ago as an alternative to traditional applications by Google, PWA (or Progressive Web Apps) has been gaining relevance over time and the adhesion of relevant developers like Twitter and even Microsoft, which started offering the same system in Windows Store and Chromium-based Edge.

This synergy in the interests of Google and Microsoft, in turn, provided another unexpected joining of forces between the two companies, with the proposal to simplify the development and publication work for developers, making the tools Google Bubblewrap and Microsoft PWABuilder become become compatible with each other.

According to Judah Gabriel Himango, from Microsoft, the collaboration between companies seeks to make the web a more capable application platform, something that will especially benefit smartphones with Android.

“We are happy to announce a new collaboration between Microsoft and Google for the benefit of the web developer community. Microsoft’s PWABuilder and Google’s Bubblewrap are now working together to help developers publish PWAs to the Google Play Store.”

An interesting point in this signed partnership is that thanks to the joining of forces in this field, the web apps system is expected to become more robust, thanks to the compensation of deficiencies that exist in both tools. Examples of this are the offer of Web Shortcuts that are only present in PWABuilder and the advanced support of Bubblewrap web activities.

Although the announcement was only made now, work on joint development has been going on for some time now and the first reflections of this have already begun to emerge with the inclusion in PWABuilder of implementations that already existed in Bubblewrap, which includes customization in the status bar and navigation, app launch screen, notification management and more.
