The 2022 release wave 2 plan covers all new functionalities planned to be delivered to market from October 2022 to March 2023. In this article, you'll find the product overview and what's new and planned for Power Apps.
Microsoft Power Apps is the industry-leading low-code application development platform that underpins Dynamics 365 extensibility, Microsoft 365 customization, and a standalone custom line of business applications for customers worldwide. Power Apps dramatically lowers the cost, complexity, and time of software development through powerful low-code development tools, a robust and secure data platform in Microsoft Dataverse, and hundreds of connectors to common business data sources.
Power Apps is investing in several areas as part of Microsoft Power Platform 2022 release wave 2:
Trust: Secure and governable enterprise apps are critical to creating trust with your users and enterprise IT teams.
Data: Makers and developers of all skill levels will be more productive over Microsoft Dataverse, multiply their productivity with fusion teams, and leverage intelligence to assist development.
Fusion: Power Apps will add built-in collaboration for end users and integration with Microsoft 365 to allow teams to collaborate and act on business data, as well as key updates to modernize user experiences.

Updates to Power Apps 2022 release wave 2
Fusion of components, composition, and collaboration
Power Apps allows everyone to be productive by supporting a collaborative environment for fusion teams to bring together the best of their assets and skills into a single solution. We'll invest in ensuring that makers can work collaboratively on an app, bringing together the skills, insights, and knowledge of multiple makers into a single application in real time. We'll also ensure that skills across highly visual custom UI, data and model driven UI, and code-first components can all be used in a single application.
Every system connected
Dataverse and the ecosystem of connectors allow organizations to build apps that use data from multiple sources, including data from Microsoft, Dataverse, and third-party sources. To continue to enable makers to build applications, we'll continue to improve our Dataverse experiences to manage and use data within the platform, simplifying virtual tables and connections to external data sources and improving offline capabilities to ensure data can be used in apps regardless of connectivity.
Power Apps will continue to ensure app users are as productive as they can be. This will be achieved through a modern and simple experience and enabling collaboration between users. Power Apps will ensure app experiences are familiar, allow users to collaborate with team members in their apps, and work with data from their apps in their existing tools like Microsoft Teams.
