Google Pulls Down Apps Section From The Web Store On Google Chrome

All types of Chrome apps will remain supported and maintained on Chrome OS for the foreseeable future. The company explained that it made a decision to shutter apps from the Chrome browser simply because not a lot of people were actually using them.

In order to enable a more seamless transition from Chrome Apps to the web, Chrome will not fully remove support for Chrome Apps on Windows, Mac or Linux until after Desktop PWA installability becomes available in 2018.

More than a year after the announcement, Google Chrome is finally pulling the plug on its "Apps" section from the Chrome Web Store on Mac, Windows, and Linux platforms. Extensions are also installed through the Chrome Web Store and usually live next to the address bar as buttons. "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". Chromebooks are already capable of running some Android apps and apps on the Chrome browser would seem redundant. Google has started sending out emails to Chrome app developers telling them that Chrome Apps are deprecated, and while previously installed apps still work, the functionality will be stripped out of Chrome in Q1 2018. PWAs aren't exactly a "standard" but are a catch-all phrase for a combination of existing W3C standards like a Web app manifest for app icons and service workers for push notifications and background updates. People who use Chrome just for web surfing will be able to download extensions and themes. 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. Google expects that PWAs will be available on desktops come mid-2018.

Google had big plans for its progressive Web Apps.
