Google removes Chrome Apps from Web Store, pushes to PWAs

Google's Progressive Web Apps will replace Chrome Apps next year

However, Chrome users who just browse the web will still be able to download and install extensions and themes. 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.

In the wake of Google's decision to kill off Chrome Apps like Remote Desktop for Mac, Windows and Linux users, Google is about to launch a web portal for Chrome Remote Desktop. Google expects that PWAs will be available on desktops come mid-2018.

All types of Chrome apps will remain supported and maintained on Chrome OS for the foreseeable future. In the post, Google said that "approximately 1 percent of users on Windows, Mac and Linux actively use Chrome packaged apps". These extensions, also available through the Chrome Web Store will be right where there were accessible from previously. Additional enhancements to the Chrome apps platform will apply only to Chrome OS devices, including kiosks. 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.

The indicator is non-directional meaning that it gauges trend strength whether the stock price is trending higher or lower. Typically, the higher the current ratio the better, as the company may be more capable of paying back its obligations.

Well it is informed that Google will not immediately remove Chrome Apps support on Windows, Mac, and Linux in first quarter of 2018. Another example of a PWA website is one where it can be "installed" and added to the user's home screen. With the shutdown of Chrome Apps, Google is working to bring Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) to the desktop.

Progressive Web Apps are not Chrome-specific. Because of this, other companies are jumping on the PWA bandwagon: it works on Samsung Android phones in the Samsung browser, Firefox on Android, and Opera on Android. Google says it's planning to bring PWA desktop apps to Chrome sometime in mid-2018. Microsoft already announced that it's bringing PWAs to Windows 10, while Apple is in early stages to bring it to the Safari web browser.
