Google to Shift Chrome Apps to Progressive Chrome Apps

  • Enabling site isolation feature via Chrome flags

However, Apps will still be available on Chrome OS-powered devices, like Chromebooks, and they're accessible via direct links to their Chrome Web Store pages. Google announced this via a blog post on 19th August 2016 and now have updated the blog post on 5th December 2017, making the change live from today.

Back in August a year ago, Google announced that it would be shuttering down the apps section in the Chrome Web Store. According to a report by Ars Technica, Chrome applications which are already installed by users will continue to function for the time being but will be phased out come Q1 2018.

As explained in the report, there were two broad types of Chrome apps available to users. There's still no word on removing Chrome Apps from Chrome OS, though.

Users who have Chrome OS laptops won't have to worry since they will still continue to have access to Chrome apps for the foreseeable future, according to Engadget. Some packaged apps were able to take advantage of USB-connected hardware, but if Google's figures are right, it seems like not many people cared for them.

With the removal of Chrome apps, Google wants developers to start adopting Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) for Mac, Linux and Windows PCs. Another example of a PWA website is one where it can be "installed" and added to the user's home screen.

We already knew that Google had big plans for its Progressive Web Apps (PWAs).

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. By early 2018, Chrome apps will be rendered unusable and instead be replaced by recently-launched Progressive Web Apps (PWA) that rolled out on Android in February this year. ChromeStory has found the web portal for Chrome Remote Desktop at remotedesktop.google.com, where it appears to have options to both gain access to someone's device, or give access to your device to someone else for tech support.
