However, the phenomenon of "app fatigue" should not lead you to the conclusion that the future belongs to progressive web apps alone. As we explain again and again in discussions with clients and prospective customers, in each case it depends on the application scenario whether a PWA or a native app is the best solution, because PWAs are web pages with "app-like" functionality. From a purely technically perspective, they are very different from native apps and this makes them an alternative or addition, depending on the application scenario. It may well be the case that a native app is the best choice for a project. Likewise, it will hardly be the case that all existing apps now have to be converted to PWAs.
Most people today, using the internet from a mobile device is a matter of course - and this development naturally promotes native apps and PWAs alike.
Google is responding to this trend towards predominantly mobile internet use with its mobile-first index. The official roll-out started this year. The index uses the mobile version of a website to evaluate its relevance for predominantly mobile users. Of course, this is not just an invitation to all website operators to adapt or completely rebuild their web presence accordingly, but it is also becoming relevant to implement new technologies.
PWAs - Progressive Web Apps - are one of these future-oriented technologies.
