Following the next Windows 10 update, codenamed "Redstone 4", the Microsoft Store will start listing the PWAs inside the Microsoft Store, with Microsoft getting ready to add what it considers to be the best PWAs to the Store. This means you can get notifications or interact with various Web-powered features, without installing any app package on your system.

For those using Windows 10 S, Microsoft's extra secure version of Windows, they will have the option to ditch passwords. It also makes it easier for users to access the apps on devices where the browser not a natural entry point, such as Xbox, Windows Mixed Reality, and other non-PC devices. In the next release of Windows 10, these PWAs will show up in the Microsoft Store.

There are many more minor changes besides these, and for the full list, check out Microsoft's usual lengthy blog post, which also clarifies the known issues with this new preview build. This update adds a calibration tool to the platform: just go to Video Playback settings and click "Change calibration settings for HDR video on my built-in display". From the images Microsoft has provided so far, it seems like users will then be able to use their fingerprint to approve Windows device sign-ins.

If you're anxious about your privacy after Windows Insider Build 17083 installed a Diagnostic Data Viewer on your computer, then you'll love this update.

PWAs can be grabbed from the Microsoft Store as an AppX file, and will run in their own sandboxed container, without needing the browser to be open at all. You can now delete whatever data the tool collected by going to Diagnostics & feedback under Privacy. Reactivating it is as sample as glancing at the pause button placed at the top or at the bottom of the screen. New buttons have been tacked on, too, for toggling the mic and camera, accessing captures, and editing the title of your Mixer stream. Today's Preview build brings one of the longest changelogs, with a number of features receiving fixes and improvements. However, there are plans to enable Service Worker and various technologies to enable features such as push notifications through PWAs with the release of EdgeHTML17 on stable Windows 10 builds in the coming future.
