Web apps are coming to Windows 10, Microsoft has announced.
The company will soon support them on Windows 10 PCs and tablets, Microsoft says.
The new features, which are described in detail in the New York Times, will make it easier to build web apps and improve their performance.
The latest version of Microsoft’s developer toolkit (DxDi) also supports the Web components.
The platform has long supported web components, but Microsoft announced earlier this year that it would also support them as an option in Windows 10 Pro.
The Web Components Platform was announced at Microsoft’s Build 2016 conference in San Francisco earlier this month.
In that announcement, Microsoft said the platform would support the same technologies that Microsoft has supported for years in Windows 8 and Windows 10.
In a blog post announcing the platform, Microsoft’s Chief Operating Officer Kevin Turner said it “will enable you to build apps and services on Windows and run them in your web browser.”
“You’ll also be able to write web apps that work on Windows as well as Windows 10 devices,” Turner said.
“Microsoft will deliver Web Components to developers through the Windows Platform and the Microsoft Web SDK, so you can start creating amazing web experiences right now.”
The platform was unveiled at the Build developer conference earlier this week, and Microsoft has also revealed the first version of its Web components for Windows 10 PC and Mac, which will run on desktop PCs, tablets and smartphones.
The browser will also get Web Components support in the next Windows 10 build, which is due out in the spring.
Microsoft has already started to test the Web Components in Windows and macOS apps for developers.
The developer tool suite, which also includes Windows Defender, will be available to developers in the coming weeks.
Windows 10 users can get Web Component support as part of the Microsoft Developer Toolkit.
That version will be made available in a free update later this year.
