Google removes Chrome Apps from Web Store, pushes to PWAs
Enlarge The Chrome Web Store

More than a year ago, 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 we've come to that point today.
The email confirms that Chrome Apps will not be found anymore for users on Windows, Mac, and Linux, because Google intends for Progressive Web Apps to replace Chrome Apps.
Google is yet to make an official statement but it has removed the "Apps" section from Chrome and has started emailing developers about the same, leaving only the "extensions" and "themes" tab to choose from.
Well it is informed that Google will not immediately remove Chrome Apps support on Windows, Mac, and Linux in first quarter of 2018. Google sees PWAs as the future, thanks to their superior offline capabilities, efficiency, and uniformity across platforms, but they're functionally similar to Chrome Apps, which are somewhat unintuitive by comparison. In the email sent to developers, Google said they will be working to bring Progressive Web Apps to Desktops with a mid-2018 target date for that functionality anticipated at this stage.
Google on Wednesday made good on its promise to rid of Chrome Apps. Most Android browsers including Opera, Firefox and the Samsung mobile browser support PWAs, so this looks like the way forward. "We have been investigating ways to simplify the transition for developers that depend on exclusive Chrome App APIs, and will continue to focus on this - in particular the Sockets, HID and Serial APIs".
