These progression web installs will now be looking more like native app installs in Chrome for Android that is Google is releasing a new PWA install user interface (UI) that resembles closely to its Google Play Store user interface, having the similar features like app name, description, a few screenshots and also an Install option. PWA has contributed to many benefits like increasing mobile traffic, improving load and installation speed, increasing average conversion, session and of course engagement.

This news was announced by Chrome Developers on Twitter via a tweet, saying that the new install UI for PWA is much better. The user will just have to click on the Install option as they usually do when installing apps from the Google Play Store and the new UI will be installed. Developers can adopt this progressive web application installs as well.

For developers to adopt this, they just need to add the screenshots and descriptions to utilize this new user interface and Chrome for Android will then use this user interface for their progressive web app install. To add images to the app, the width and height of the images should be 320px to the minimum and 3840px to the maximum, the same criteria goes for the screenshots as well. The format to be used for the screenshots should be JPG or PNG file format and the maximum dimension mentioned cannot be twice larger than the minimum dimension.
