Google Preview The New Chrome Packaged Apps

Posted on May 2 2013 - 12:23am by Editorial Staff


Google today announced that the Chrome packaged apps will be available in the Chrome Web Store for any user on Chrome’s developer channel on both of Windows and Chrome OS although do remember the fact that they are available still limited to users. You will notice that the “App” category now contains only the new Chrome packaged apps while a new category called “Websites” contains all existing hosted apps and legacy packaged apps.

“Many of these apps are works in progress, which is why we’re only making them easily available on Chrome’s dev channel,” said Amanda Bishop, Product manager and (web) store keeper. “If you’ve written a packaged app, or are working on one, now is a great time to get some early feedback and polish your app before Chrome packaged apps become more broadly available.”
