Google Removes Chrome Apps from Web Store

Google announced that Chrome Apps would be removed from Windows, Mac, and Linux versions of Chrome (but not Chrome OS) some time in 2017, and it seems they’ve kept their word. Yesterday, Google shut down the “app” section of the Chrome Web Store for those platforms, meaning you can’t install Chrome Apps anymore.

Google told developers via email the Chrome team is working to enable Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) that can be installed on the desktop. It plans to ship the PWA functionality in mid-2018, and will allow users to install web apps to the desktop and launch them via icons and shortcuts.
