Microsoft Edge will Redirect PWAs to Apps installed from Store


Microsoft is testing another useful feature in the latest version of Edge browser in Canary channel that helps in replacing PWAs installed via browser with Windows Store PWAs

redirect pwas to installed store apps

You might be wondering how is it going to work right? Suppose if users have installed both PWA and Store version of the particular web page on their computer, and Edge Web App-Store App Migration feature is enabled, then the browser will automatically open Store app instead of opening PWA installed via Edge.

The feature is available behind the flags in Edge Canary v88.0.692.0 and users who want to try out this new feature have to enable it manually. Here’s how you can do that:

Update Edge Canary to the latest version and then visit this flag address: edge://flags/#edge-webapp-storeapp-migration.

Using the “Enable Migration of browser installed PWA to Store installed app” drop-down change the settings from Default to Enabled.

Edge Web App Store App Migration

Click Restart button to apply the changes.

With addition of this new feature in the Edge browser, the Microsoft clears that they’re going to give priority to Microsoft Store apps over PWAs installed using Edge browser.
