Google Shuts down Chrome Apps Web Store on Mac & Windows

Developers were told past year that non-Chrome OS instances of Chrome Apps would die in the first quarter of 2018.

Google Product Manager Matt Blumberg presented enterprise users with a preview of the security updates that will come to Chrome throughout 2018. Right now, this app is in the beta version but it is available for download. Since Chrome apps are soon to be deprecated completely early next year, this web portal and its accompanying extension replace the app.

Google Chrome Remote Desktop is one of the popular services and is considered an effective alternate to Teamviewer. However, over the coming months, the company plans to add a policy that will allow corporate administrators to bypass this restriction if it breaks compatibility with the security applications they use. In simplest form it can be stated as an web app with mobile app functionalities. Google's aim implementing this new feature is to keep websites open in different tabs separate from one another to limit the damage from web attacks. Those devices that have been configured with the Chrome Remote Access will also be available in your account. This will give you remote access from anywhere in the world, provided you login with your credentials on the web app.

In order to control your PC remotely, you will have to download the Chrome Remote Desktop Host that is on your computer and run the same whenever the PC is turned off.

Are web apps better than native apps?

It was not long back that Google shut down apps available on the Chrome Web Store.

While Progressive Web Apps are being held up by many in the industry as the next wave of application development, they appear to be a solution looking for a problem which was already solved by running Android apps on ChromeOS. Microsoft hopes to boost their Microsoft app store by ingesting the web apps automatically and has worked with Google to develop the technology.
