What do we recommend ??

Our suggestion is to go with PWA. We could also use a combination of AMP and PWA. The primary AMP will be used only to load the page faster and from there on we can use PWA .


AMP gets content in front of users fast, while PWA enables rich user experience and engagement through features like push notifications, add to home screen button etc.


AMP is more for content but with PWA user-experience and user-engagement can be enhanced
