Google is killing Chrome Apps for desktops, for good

Well, almost a year-and-half later Google has completed the job and now, Chrome browser will not be able to access or install any apps from the store.

The removal of apps from the Chrome Web Store was actually first announced by Google back in August 2016.

Google is officially done with Chrome Apps for desktops: it's now removed the Apps section from the Chrome Web Store, leaving only Extensions and Themes available for you to customize your browser with from here on out.

Google says it is "roughly targeting mid-2018" for PWA desktop apps.

As explained in the report, there were two broad types of Chrome apps available to users. Provide remote assistance to Windows, Mac and Linux users, or access your Windows and Mac desktops at any time, all from the Chrome browser on virtually any device, including Chromebooks. There's still no word on removing Chrome Apps from Chrome OS, though. Extensions are also installed through the Chrome Web Store and usually live next to the address bar as buttons.

Rex Advsrs Ltd stated it has 11,116 shares. 24,599 are held by Quantitative Systematic Strategies Ltd Limited Liability Company. After $0.66 actual EPS reported by Abbott Laboratories for the previous quarter, Wall Street now forecasts 10.61% EPS growth.

"The Chrome browser will continue to load packaged and hosted apps on Windows, Mac, and Linux beyond the previously announced deprecation timeline".

Chrome for Android has already supported PWAs, and they aim to make the web feel like a native app.

Google had big plans for its progressive Web Apps.

For Chromebook users, or ChromeOS users chrome apps will continue to work there and you will get regular updates from the app developers. These applications which are already being rolled out for Chrome on Android and will function more like full-fledged applications with push notification capabilities and an installable app icon.

According to Ars Technica, Google is directing developers towards a different way for desktop: Progressive Web Apps (PWA). When Google's done working on PWAs on Android, the company could move forward by bringing it to other versions of the Chrome web browser.
