📧 How to install Outlook online as a PWA app in Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge?

Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) are a type of Web application that use modern Web technologies to provide users with an experience similar to that of a native mobile app. They are designed to be fast, reliable and attractive and can be accessed through a Web browser on a variety of devices, such as smartphones, tablets and laptops. One of the key features of a PWA is that it can be installed on a user's device, just like a native mobile app. This makes it possible for users to access the app even when they are offline or have a poor Internet connection.

PWAs can also be added to a user's home screen and can receive push notifications, which can help increase engagement and retain users. This can be especially useful for organizations that want to provide mobile app functionality without requiring users to download and install a separate app from an app store. Instead, users can simply access the PWA through a Web browser on their device.

In summary, PWAs offer the ability to deliver a native-like user experience on the Web, without requiring users to download and install a separate app from an app store. They are fast, reliable and attractive and can be accessed on different devices through a Web browser. In addition, they can be installed on a user's device and receive push notifications, which can help increase engagement and retain users.

I install outlook as a PWA in Microsoft edge. But i am not receiving any desktop notifications. I enabled the desktop notifications inside the WPA and "allow" notification permission in the Microsoft edge. Any solution?
