So this year Google has been putting a lot of drive and energy into PWA (Progressive Web App) According to this article over on cnbc.com, Nearly three-quarters of the world will use just their smartphones to access the internet by 2025.
Considering these stats, if you are thinking of building a new website or looking to redesign one, you should consider developing your website as PWA with no doubts.
What is a PWA?
The functionalities include working offline, push notifications, and device hardware access and enabling user experiences similar to native applications.
Why should you consider using a PWA?
A few weeks ago, I was looking for more information about PWA, and I found a very cool website pwastats.com, it shows the stats of all the most famous companies which are using PWA. It was impressive to find out how the companies improved the performance of their website, mostly more than 100%.
A Progressive Web App can cut load times, allow users to navigate offline, increase the time spent on the website, increase revenue, can be much smaller than a mobile app usually around 1MB in size.
Can anyone use a PWA?
To make a Progressive Web App at first, we need a responsive built website. If that requirement is met or already considered as part of a new website development then you can leave the rest up to us. We now include the option of PWA with all of our website builds.
But we won’t stop there we will also include:
- Progressive Web Apps (PWA)

And build them together to make your WordPress website instant, installable, accessible, offline usable, push notification supported, favoured in Google search results and Facebook News Feed & much more…
