I have a PWA app in the Microsoft Store that calls several WinRT APIs via JavaScript. I understand this will not be supported in Edge+Chromium. Will EdgeHTML PWAs continue to be supported? Will this type of app be deprecated in the future? When?

 

Will I be able to publish a PWA to the Store that supports Edge+Chromium instead of HTML?

 

Will I be able to create new PWA Store app that supports EdgeHTML + WinrRT APIs?

 

How will a developer select which rendering engine they need for thier Store PWA?

 

Thanks!

Hi Mike, we will have more information about PWAs and EdgeHTML coming soon. Thank you for taking the time and testing your PWA with the preview versions of Microsoft Edge.
