Microsoft is working on a new app to help Windows Insiders keep up with the latest news and builds surrounding the Windows Insider program. Called Project Catnip, the app will be a PWA and will be available for Insiders around the world. Microsoft is even planning to make the app available for Android and iOS and since it’s a PWA, the company shouldn’t have issues porting it to the mobile platforms.
At the moment, the app is available for selected Windows Insiders. At their #InsiderUp page, Microsoft mentioned that the app is currently in canary and will be available for Windows Insiders soon.
Project Catnip is our new PWA (Progressive Web App) of our Insider website that showcases the latest Windows Insider news and brings together key Insider information, including build releases, Insider stories, Flight Hub, and Insider cohorts you’re part of, all in one place. It also showcases your Insider profile and your Insider achievements. And because it’s a PWA, it works across platforms and has offline support.
Our canary ring filled up quickly and is trying it out now, but we’ll let you know when it’s available for all our Windows Insiders.
The app should be helpful for Insiders who want to keep up with the latest news, and especially those involving new build releases. Microsoft hasn’t laid out a specific agenda for the release but we should expect it to happen soon.
