What is a Progressive web app?

A Progressive Web App (PWA) is a type of Web application that provides user experiences similar to native apps. These apps offer features such as push notifications, offline usage and a low-latency user experience. PWAs are developed using Web technologies such as HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Thereby, these apps are designed to function on all devices, including desktop, mobile and tablet.
