During its Edge Web Summit in 2017, Microsoft announced that it was planning to launch a version of Microsoft Teams, built as a Progressive Web App (PWA), on the Microsoft Store for Windows 10. While the company has been mum on those plans since the announcement, it looks like those plans are starting to take shape.
Petri reports that Microsoft has started testing the Teams PWA with a "small group of users" (via Thurrott). According to the report, Microsoft is currently calling the app a Hosted Web App (HWA), which works similarly to a PWA by using web code to deliver a native app-like experience. As far as functionality is concerned, the app experience should look and run just like the currently available Win32 Teams desktop app.
Petri notes that this version of Team is currently being tested outside of Microsoft, so it's likely we could see it arrive in the Microsoft Store sooner rather than later. Given that Microsoft will soon allow PWAs to join the Microsoft Store, the timing certainly makes sense.
