Google Shuts Down Chrome Apps From Web Store, Moves to PWAs

Chrome 63 Now Available for Android Linux Mac and Windows What's New

We were also aware of it that Google would drop Chrome web apps from Linux, Mac and Windows.

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

To allow your PC to be accessed, you'll need to install the Chrome Remote Desktop extension from the Chrome Web Store. In the post, Google said that "approximately 1 percent of users on Windows, Mac and Linux actively use Chrome packaged apps".

Google told developers via email the Chrome team is working to enable Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) that can be installed on the desktop.

Chrome OS users, however, will still be able to access them for the foreseeable future. It'll be interesting to see if people care to adopt these once they're widely available. "There are two types of Chrome apps: packaged apps and hosted apps", Google explained in a blog post from previous year. Google hasn't announced anything yet for Chrome OS, but it's likely that Chrome apps might go away, too. Additional enhancements to the Chrome apps platform will apply only to Chrome OS devices, including kiosks. "We have been investigating ways to simplify the transition for developers that depend on exclusive Chrome App APIs, and will continue to focus on this - in particular the Sockets, HID and Serial APIs". Other features of a PWA website include integrated push notifications and some offline capabilities, according to Ars Technica. PWAs already work on Samsung's own web browser on its Android smartphones and Android versions of Firefox and Opera. PWAs got a big boost to move beyond Android when Microsoft announced it was bringing PWAs to Windows 10, and even Apple has slowly started work on adding PWA support to Safari.

Google removes apps from 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.
