Ryan Hayes posted on Twitter that Microsoft Bing will be crawling the web for PWAs and will then decide to “auto-ingests quality” PWAs into the Windows store. He posted this based on what Microsoft said at the Microsoft Edge Web Summit.
Here is the tweet:
Microsoft will crawl the web for PWAs and auto-ingests quality ones into the Windows store. Pay attention to PWAs, y’all. #MSEdgeSummit

This may be a big thing for both Microsoft and Bing. Emily Grossman said “Boom!” with excitement. Because right now PWAs are growing fast but still early on in their adoption by core developers.
If Google did something similar, which they might, who knows, it would be even bigger. Google is strongly behind PWAs, Progressive Web Apps, and it will be interesting to see how they deal with it in search and their native app stores.
