Progressive Web App
"Native app store apps do things like send push notifications, work offline, look and feel like an app (as Apple and Google have imagined them), load on the homescreen, and so on and so forth. Mobile Web Apps accessed in a mobile browser, by comparison, historically haven’t done those things. Progressive Web Apps fix that with new Web APIs, new design concepts, and new buzzwords." — Max Lynch (CEO, Ionic Framework)

"The Web Speech API allows you to interact with a website by talking and receiving audio feedback from the website. This new interaction method can allow users to cook while simultaneously looking for recipes and receiving instructions from a website.
The Web Speech API is composed of two parts: speech recognition and speech synthesis. Speech recognition is the browser’s ability to recognize what the user said. Developers can implement methods to interpret what the user said and associate with a work flow for the user to interact with the site. Speech synthesis is the browser’s ability to provide audio feedback. Developers can use speech synthesis to guide the user and relay information back to the user." — Winston Chen (Engineer, Samsung)
