Google shuts chrome apps section for Mac and Windows users

Google shuts chrome apps section for Mac and Windows users

Google has shut down the "app" section of the Chrome Web Store for those platforms, meaning you can't install Chrome Apps anymore.

Now Google announced that users can no longer have access to the Web Store and cannot install the apps through the Chrome Web Store.

Chrome on Android already supports installing PWAs, even giving them their own icon in the app drawer.It will be interesting how Google gives that same treatment to Windows, Mac, and Linux. This extension enables you to install, view, and modify the Chrome Remote Desktop native client from the web UI. PWAs use the modern web capabilities to deliver an app-like experience to the web or desktop users.

The company explained its intention to do away with apps a year ago, and as we noted back in August when it officially announced its plans, only about 1 percent of Windows, macOS and Linux users actually used Apps, so they've gotta go.

In September, India's army chief General Bipin Rawat had said that India could not afford to be complacent and must be prepared for war.

Google has shut down the "Apps" section of the Chrome Web Store as it pushes for Progressive Web Apps. Developers can continue to build Chrome apps (or Android apps) for Chrome OS. Chromebooks are already capable of running some Android apps and apps on the Chrome browser would seem redundant. "Another update will be posted here when a new date for the Chrome Apps EOL on Windows, Mac, and Linux has been finalised." said an update on the blog post. Existing apps will continue to work and receive updates. Another example of a PWA website is one where it can be "installed" and added to the user's home screen.

Google removes apps from Chrome web browser. 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.

PWA is the acronym of Progressive Web Apps.

Chrome Remote Desktop is of course Google's remote admin tool, allowing you to remotely access your, or someone else's computer, tablet or phone.
