Google Brings Chrome Remote Desktop To Web Via Dedicated Portal

Google Formally Shuts Down ‘Apps’ Section on Chrome Web Store

GOOGLE HAS pulled the plug on the Web Apps section of the Chrome Web Store as it moves to "Progressive Web Apps". Users of Google Chrome on Mac, Linus and Windows PCs will no longer be able to download and install Chrome Apps from now on. It's also important to remember that you'll only need to use this web portal if you're not on Chrome OS, as the app will still be available there. There are two types of Chrome apps: "packaged apps and hosted apps", Google explained in a blog post from previous year. In the post, Google said that "approximately 1 percent of users on Windows, Mac and Linux actively use Chrome packaged apps".

Google told developers via email the Chrome team is working to enable Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) that can be installed on the desktop. Hosted apps function mostly like webpage bookmarks which could be conveniently pinned across parts of the user interface.

Progressive Web Apps is a Google technology which lets developers create web applications which look and act just like proper desktop applications. 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 expects that PWAs will be available on desktops come mid-2018. These apps are installable and bring features like push notifications, immersive full-screen experience and more. The more powerful Chrome Apps were "packaged apps", which could run in the background and access hardware like USB ports.

He added: "Bench role?" "I realised that sometimes not playing is for the best". 'Being on the bench is awful . Argentina have been drawn in Group D at the World Cup alongside Iceland, Croatia and Nigeria.

PWAs already work on the Chrome app for Android devices. PWAs already work on Samsung's own web browser on its Android smartphones and Android versions of Firefox and Opera.

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