We're working on some amazing apps.
Known as Progressive Web Apps, they are lightweight and:
- Are installed with one click to your device.
- Take up significantly less storage space than typical apps — 90% less in some cases.
- Provide similar native-like experience on Android and iOS devices.
Check out the Google PWA Showcase.
