Google releases web app version of Chrome Remote Desktop

Google Chrome Google releases web app version of Chrome Remote Desktop

Back in August 2016, Google had announced that it would remove apps section from Chrome Web Store across Windows, Mac and Linux platforms citing the reason that less than 1 percent of users were using them on the Chrome browser.

Google effectively reported a year ago that it would pull down the shades on its Chrome Apps at some point in 2017.

Now Google announced that users can no longer have access to the Web Store and cannot install the apps through the Chrome Web Store. This extension enables you to install, view, and modify the Chrome Remote Desktop native client from the web UI. And folks just using Chrome to surf the web will still be able to download extensions and themes. The apps that have already been installed still work. After various testing and through beta channels, it has officially made its way to the platform through Chrome 63 and the developers seems to have completed providing the final touches for the interface. PWAs can work across multiple browsers even on mobile devices, and can deliver an app-like experience to desktop websites.

In the context of the Chrome Browser, web apps were only ever really glorified web links for the most part, and in an attempt to try and add value, it is limiting their use to Chrome OS. Chrome Remote Desktop has been a handy tool over the past few years and now, it's being brought to the web for easier access.

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. As a result, they are able to run on Samsung phones via the Samsung browser, and Android versions of Firefox and Opera.

Developers are being warned that their apps are now depreciated and will be removed altogether from users machines in the first chunk of 2018. Both app categories will now be accessible only on Chrome OS and not the desktop.
