WebAPKs on Android

When the user adds your Progressive Web App to their home screen on Android, Chrome automatically generates an APK for you, which we sometimes call a WebAPK. Being installed via an APK makes it possible for your app to show up in the app launcher, in Android's app settings and to register a set of intent filters.

Responsive images

A picture is worth 1000 words, and images play an integral part of every page. But they also often account for most of the downloaded bytes. With responsive web design not only can our layouts change based on device characteristics, but images as well.
