Microsoft Edge (Chromium) WebView2 control enables you to embed HTML, CSS, and JavaScript in your native Win32 C/C++ applications. With the latest browser rendering engine, it can display the web content in the applications.

 

As a Windows app developer, you will now have access to the latest web technologies in both existing and new applications. Though it is currently available for Win32 C/C++ applications, you have to wait for the general availability of support for .NET Framework 4.6.2 or later, .NET Core 3.0 or later, and WinUI 3.0.

 

You can now go ahead and download WebView2 SDK from NuGet Store and WebView2 Runtime from Microsoft site.
