Enable HTTP/2 on Azure Web Apps
IIS 10.0 in Windows 10 already supports HTTP/2, Azure Web Apps should support it as well.
Marking as complete! Full deployment for all multi-tenant resources is now complete. Enabling HTTP/2 is documented in the blog here:
We will have UI support in the Azure Portal in the coming weeks for a simple toggle experience but you can update through the resource explorer right now.
Deployment to App Service Environmentx and national clouds will be coming shortly.
Please reach out over the developer forums for any questions or issues encountered.

and... where we are now?

Really looking forward to this. :)
I am impatiently waiting for this addition, with http2 support being available in all popular servers like nginx, apache and even IIS 10, it makes perfect sense to make it happen in Azure Web Apps also, sooner than later

I suspect this is going to take some time. There's a few things that have to happen: Windows Server 2016 needs to be released and extensively tested in Azure, all the cloud services running the app services need to be updated, and the way that SSL terminations works in Azure needs to change. Currently SSL termination happens at the load balancer, while HTTP/2 requires TLS all the way back to IIS (e.g. the VM running the app service). This is definitely a very much anticipated feature, however, because I honestly can't think of anything else that can add more end-user performance to app services than HTTP/2.
Agreed. This needs to be implemented soon. The browser support is almost there. Once more users migrate to Windows 10 from Windows 7 (IE11 only supports HTTP/2 in Windows 10).

A status update would be appreciated.

I, too, am interested in this implementation. Any update on this?
And how long has Edge supported HTTP2?
Oh yeah, just since the first Win10 technical preview....

Yes, HTTP/2 would be very nice finally.
