Google just announced that they’re going to be doing their best to push web apps forward, as opposed to native apps, in the next few years. Their plan? Two-fold. First, they’re developing PWA (Progressive Web Apps) frameworks which will make it easier than ever to develop web apps and get them out there to users. Second, they’re improving Google Chrome so that even non-PWA web apps will work better and faster in the browser.

 What Are Progressive Web Apps?

Progressive web apps, or PWAs, are a new type of app which runs on any device that is connected to the internet. These apps work and act like native apps, but with one crucial difference: they’re served through browsers rather than through an app store. And these apps are much more powerful than what we traditionally think of as web experiences—they offer us notifications, offline support, push messages for instant updates and rely on responsive interfaces that fit mobile screens perfectly.

Essentially, PWAs use modern browser features in new ways in order to give users a whole new kind of web experience. Google’s already trying this out with its newly released service Google Maps Go. I’m so excited!

 Why Are They Important?

In recent years, we’ve seen a shift in web-based applications. Where once they were static pages, they are now real-time, event-driven systems that interact with live data sets. And while these modern-day apps may be more responsive than their predecessors, they can be difficult to build. Unlike typical web pages and software services, these dynamic applications often require a backend system running code on either servers or virtual machines that provide persistent storage for the data being served and receive requests from front end clients.

In the past decade, Google has made big bets on containers as a way of packaging up an application for deployment and management. Today, the company is announcing a new project called Kubernetes which it hopes will become a standard tool for building and managing this next generation of web apps. The software was built by Google engineers who have been running some of these new types of applications inside production at scale over the last few years and wants to share what they’ve learned with other developers. We want developers to focus on just writing their app, says Joe Beda, Product Manager at Google. And not have to worry about all this other stuff.

 Who Can Use Them?

The goal is for these apps to work with whatever device you have in your hand, be it a phone, tablet or laptop. With services like Gmail, YouTube and Google Docs already making that possible on mobile devices, these new apps can take it a step further. For example, your groceries list could automatically update with items as you walk through the store. And reminders that pop up on your watch might not require your phone at all. The idea is that services like Maps and Search will get better too.

And with more voice input through Android phones and Chrome-based computers (that understand context), it’ll be easier than ever before to interact with technology without having to type anything at all–simply by talking out loud. – In order to make this happen, Google says they’re going to offer people an open source platform called Flutter which will enable them to build beautiful native interfaces for both iOS and Android from a single codebase.

– There’s no word yet on when these new web apps will come out but we do know what they’re called: Spartan and Rapid. – These are the next generation of tools that will help developers create high quality apps quickly and easily, whether it’s for desktop, smartphone or another emerging form factor.

 How Do I Get Started?

So, you want to be a part of this new revolution in web apps? There are many ways to get started. Firstly, what kinds of developer skills do you have? For now, it’s not important if you have absolutely none- there are tons of online tutorials that can teach you everything from JavaScript basics all the way up to Node.js and React with Redux! The next thing you should figure out is which environment best suits your needs: Windows 10 or Mac OSX/Linux? Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome as your browser? Visual Studio Code or Atom (by GitHub)? And finally, what tech stack framework do you prefer? For example React/Node is a pretty popular combo right now.

 What If I Already Have a Mobile App?

It can be easy to overlook your mobile app if you already have one, but with Google potentially on the way, now may be a good time to step back and assess how your app is doing in light of changes that may be coming. While Google won’t force your hand with regard to what features you have or don’t have in your app, they’re heavily investing in new functionality and it may not always align with what you’ve built into your own app.

This gives a powerful example of why it’s necessary for small business owners and entrepreneurs like you not only to adapt when necessary but also make sure they are adapting while there is still time before other developments occur that could steal their thunder. Make sure to follow this advice, as well as everything else we’ve discussed today, so that you can give yourself the best chance at success!

 Where Can I Learn More?

Many people are interested in developing for Google’s newest technology, Progressive Web Apps. These apps are designed specifically for mobile devices and can be installed on a phone, tablet or computer without having to go through the Google Play Store. They work similarly to mobile apps but are much more lightweight, quicker and cheaper than other options on the market.

This is because they run from a browser without any of the usual baggage like clunky UI’s or hardware requirements like having access to a camera or GPS capabilities. The downside? You have to do all the programming yourself, and if you want your app to look good it will require some time learning how to use web technologies that you may not have used before. For example: CSS3, Flexbox layout modules, JavaScript frameworks such as AngularJS, ReactJS and VueJS etc.
