PWA open PDF file

How can we open the PDF file in PWA?

I tried to like this but instead of opening it, it downloads the PDF file.

BEGINJS
window.open('Cover letter.pdf', '_system');
ENDJS

 

@asmat your code works for me in Chrome, Edge and FireFox (Desktop). I think you are facing the problem on Android.
Have you tried to show the PDF inside an IFrame object?
I'm not sure if it's even possible to show a PDF inside a WebView on Android...

Yes, the problem is only for android, I tried showing a PDF file inside Iframe but it seems impossible.

In the Cordova app, this task is very easy by using the file-opener2 plugin but in PWA, I don't know what should I do.
