How to query CSV URL from AGO

I am working on building a web application and I'd like to know if it is possible to query a hosted CSV file from a URL in AGO WebApp? 

For instance, I can feed in the USGS earthquake information ( ) and add the data points to my map. I can then perform analysis on this layer in the Web Map, but not in a Web App. I understand that to query layers they need to be feature layers, but why can I perform queries in the Web Map but not in a Web Application? The only solution I've seen to convert this CSV into a feature layer while maintaining the live stream is by using JavaScript. Is there a way to do this in the Web App builder?

   This would only be possible if you are using WAB Dev and make some modifications to the code base to allow for this.
