When i started working in Microsoft Power Apps I started to feel that I am missing source control integration with GIT or VSTS/Devops. But then i realized that Microsoft Power apps is focused on helping people build apps without code or less-code. It means that source control Integration with git or VSTS Or Azure DEVOps are not part of those near-term plans and was never a part of plan from Microsoft side,
But good thing is that you can always restore a Microsoft Power app to a previous version that was saved to the cloud from your Power Apps account.
