Like in Android: Windows 11 will allow you to add widgets from external developers

At the Microsoft Build 2022 technology conference, the company announced that it will add support for widgets from external developers to Windows 11 before the end of 2022.

Currently, the system only supports widgets from Microsoft itself. In particular, this is a widget for Outlook – a weather forecast, as well as a widget for viewing news and entertainment content. 

But after the innovations, developers will be able to create widgets as add-ons to Win32 and PWA applications that already work on Windows.

“Toward the end of 2022, developers will be able to start building widgets and using them as add-ons for their own apps on Windows 11,” said Panos Panay, chief product officer at Microsoft.
