  • Enabling site isolation feature via Chrome flags

As Chrome apps reach their end of life, one of Google's most useful tools is seemingly in jeopardy.

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

Currently, users can still install apps by opening the direct link. All Chrome Apps that have already been installed on Chrome browsers will also cease to function sometime in early 2018.

Progressive Web Apps are not Chrome-specific. In simplest form it can be stated as an web app with mobile app functionalities. Provide remote assistance to Windows, Mac and Linux users, or access your Windows and Mac desktops at any time, all from the Chrome browser on virtually any device, including Chromebooks. Google hasn't announced anything yet for Chrome OS, but it's likely that Chrome apps might go away, too. As on Chrome OS, the app will continue to work.

A dedicated mobile app will enable customers to choose their destination, hail a vehicle, and pay for the ride all in one place. This new service is aimed at introducing a new mobility option to complement the area's current transportation network.

Spotted by Ars Technica first, the search giant has started sending emails to Chrome app developers informing them that Chrome apps won't be approved for the platform. PWAs again aim to bring a few app-like features to websites, giving them a full-screen interface, an "installable" app icon, push notifications, and offline capabilities. But when it does, it'll mean that PWAs are supported across Chrome and Android devices, which does make you wonder if that's the future of the splintered dual operating system. The more powerful Chrome Apps were "packaged apps", which could run in the background and access hardware like USB ports. PWAs already work on Samsung's own web browser on its Android smartphones and Android versions of Firefox and Opera.

Google on Wednesday made good on its promise to rid of Chrome Apps.

With this new web portal, users will be required to login to remotedesktop.google.com and connect remote devices.
