Link for Google Chrome is now available in the Microsoft Store

Kristine Garrett | 20 December, 2017, 00:29

The app was nothing more than a web wrapper that uses the default browser to download the installation package for the company's Chrome browser. Instead, a Chrome launcher now is in the Store. The reason for this is likely laid plain right on the Windows Store page: Chrome won't work with Windows 10 S, and until that changes (which it probably never will), Google probably doesn't want to give direct access to Chrome through the Windows Store. In a rather subtle dig, Google has made the Chrome installer available for download in the Microsoft Store. It's a simple app that points you straight to the download page for Chrome.

You can get the same effect by going to Google. As Microsoft continues its push to stock up the Windows Store - its biggest weakness put up against the Apple iOS or Google Android ecosystems - Google is making it clear that it has no plans to fully embrace Windows 10, in a way that's actually kind of amusing. Microsoft just revealed that the Google Chrome Installer has been removed from the Windows 10 Store. The company has also said previously that if Google packaged Chrome using the Desktop Bridge and submitted it to the Store, that wouldn't be accepted either.

The handful of reviews of the "app" make it clear that the first few users who found the app are none too happy that it's just a link and not the actual browser. That's an invitation that Google is unlikely to accept.

"We have removed the Google Chrome Installer App from Microsoft Store, as it violates our Microsoft Store policies". In short, Google would have to completely remake Chrome specifically for Windows.
