We have known for a long time that progressive web apps are the future because they combine the best parts of the web with a classical native experience.
For Android users, the whole thing is now being raised to a new level. The latest update to the version of Chrome Canary for Android enables us now to use app shortcuts for PWAs.
To be more precise, this means that by pressing firmly on your PWA on the home screen, we can now open shortcuts to interact with the app faster. For example, we can have our customer card displayed directly, write messages / e-mails / SMS with one click, take photos, etc. without having to open the app and search for the required one. When used correctly, this not only saves us time but also stress.
In the future, the whole thing can also be individualized and adapted to any progressive web app.
