Check If Your Native App Is Installed With getInstalledRelatedApps

As the capability gap between web and native gets smaller, it becomes easier to offer the same experience for both web and native users. This may lead to cases where users have both the web and native versions installed on the same device. Apps should be able to detect this situation. The getInstalledRelatedApps API is a new web platform API that allows your web app to check to see if your native app is installed on the users device, and vice versa.

Badging for App Icons

The Badging API is a new web platform API that allows installed web apps to set an application-wide badge, shown in an operating-system-specific place associated with the application, such as the shelf or home screen. Badging makes it easy to subtly notify the user that there is some new activity that might require their attention, or it can be used to indicate a small amount of information, such as an unread count.

Fresher service workers, by default

Starting in Chrome 68, HTTP requests that check for updates to the service worker script will no longer be fulfilled by the HTTP cache by default.
