Say goodbye to the Chrome Apps
Google just announced that they will stop supporting Chrome apps on every platform except Chrome OS. However, these apps will not be removed instantly.
At the end of this year, new Chrome Apps will be only available on Chrome OS. But Mac and Windows users will still be able to use the existing apps and get updates. Then, in the middle of 2017, you will not see the apps section of Chrome and in 2018, the Chrome Apps on Mac, Windows and Linux will be gone forever.
Even though it looks like Google is deactivating an important feature, literally nobody is using those apps regularly. According to Google, most of the apps provides better experience on their website and it is true. In the past, it was limited what you could do on a website but now, websites are able to send notifications or to connect to the hardware.
When the Chrome Apps will be gone, the extensions will be even more important.
