One of the great innovations of recent years Continuous Web Apps, known in Spanish as Continuous Web Applications. These programs are characterized by being web applications that are able to function similar to native programs.
They are applications that specialize in providing experiences such as simple applications with the great benefit that they do not take up space on our device when dealing with web pages. These apps from now on will have a very important function that will bring them closer to the experience of using Android.
Continuous Web applications already have a context menu
In Android 7.0 Nougat, Google introduced a new context menu for apps. This menu appears when you touch and hold the app icon on the desktop, and it allows us to do things faster like take a selfie, call one of your favorite contacts or write a new email.
From now on, developing Web Applications will have the ability to customize their menus. This is indicated Thomas is amazing, Google Developer, on Twitter.

Since the last update of Chrome Canary, the experimental version of Chrome, the developmental Web apps we install from this browser will have the menus above.
For example, Thomas used the Chad Chonks app, a simple app that shows pictures of cats with sad faces. The app includes two sections, and allows us, from the context menu, to access each category.
The app serves as an example for developers who want to add shortcuts to their system. In the case of your own lawsuit, Thomas personally recommends that you include shortcuts from the App section of your app.
How does it affect us users? For example, in cases such as the use of On Twitter or Facebook.
