If you have been working with Azure, you might have seen that there are different icons for Azure Web App, API app in Azure Portal and might be confused with the difference between them. All of these are part of the Azure App Service. Initially, there was some difference in features offered by these services individually, but now, the difference is only limited to naming, icons, and tooling.
a Single web app can be hosted by a customer to act as any mobile service or an API with all the features offered through the app services. So it no longer matters which app service type you choose to deploy unless you care what the icon looks like.
