Since the cancellation of the Microsoft Windows 10 Mobile system, Microsoft immediately devoted itself to the Android world. Over the years, many Android applications have been released, which has been dubbed by netizens as “the first developer of Android.”
With the release of Surface Duo, Microsoft’s first Android-equipped device, Microsoft has once again become an Android device manufacturer. As a software giant in the PC era, the deep cooperation between Microsoft and Google, the leader of Android, is good news for many people.
Today, Microsoft announced cooperation with Google. One of the purposes of this cooperation is to add more PWA applications to Play Store.
In the future, developers can use Microsoft PWABuilder tool to develop PWA applications, and at the same time use Google’s Bubblewrap tool to more deeply integrate into the Android system, including a “native application-like” notification push experience, custom application startup pages, change the app name and customize the appearance of the Android status bar and navigation bar.
Developers can use the tools provided by Microsoft and Google to make the experience of the PWA application more feel like a native application, eliminating the feeling of fragmentation that web applications bring to users.
Undoubtedly, one of the most important purposes of Microsoft’s cooperation with Google this time is to bring a more productive developer environment to the Android system, thereby making up for the regret of the lack of certain office applications on Android
