Microsoft has announced general availability of the WebView2 component of Edge, that allows integrating the Edge core with Win32 C/C++ apps. By using WebView2, developers can build modern apps that support all the existing Windows versions.

The official announcement says

WebView2 is Microsoft’s new embedded web control, built on top of Microsoft Edge (Chromium). This means that as a Windows app developer you will now have access to the latest web tech in both existing and new apps. WebView2 lets you combine the ease and agility of developing for the web with the power of building a native desktop application. If you’re not familiar with WebView2 yet, our Ignite talk this year provides a great overview to bring you up to speed.

In the future, Microsoft is going to update WebView2 with every major stable release of the Edge browser, shipping new APIs and features to the component.

It is worth mentioning that WinUI 3 and the next .NET version are also on the way to the production branch.
