Chrome OS Replacing Google Apps with Progressive Web Apps


Starting from today, Google has begun replacing some of the Google Apps with Progressive Web Apps on the ChromeOS. The Google Play Store on Chromebooks started showing up the Progressive Apps instead of showing the standard Google or Android Apps.

Many of the giant tech-websites have reported this by seeing the Twitter and YouTube TV app. These are the first two apps who have been replaced on the official Play Store.

Many of the Chrome OS users have been complaining about the old-age apps for their PC systems to Google. Google has now planned something good for all the ChromeOS users. The platform supports Linux and Android apps, you can use some of the popular Linux and Android apps on the ChromeOS.

To test out the availability of the newly introduced Twitter and YouTube TV i.e. Progressive Apps on ChromeOS, all you have to do is just go to the Play Store app. Select the Search option and search for any of these apps, click the Install button to start downloading.

For Google’s ChromeOS, Progressive Web Apps have been there for quite some time now. But after introducing the new dedicated apps, the PWAs will be directly installed by default when you try installing them from Play Store.

ChromeOS has a limited number of users compared to Windows OS and for that reason, the popularity of the PWAs are limited. By making these apps as default apps through the Play Store, the number of users of these apps will definitely be increased which is a good sign to see the progressive results.

Twitter PWA was first spotted by Chrome Unboxed. It seems like Google is planning to replace more of the existing Android Apps with the Progressive Web Apps in the coming days. Currently, Google has replaced only two apps for ChromeOS. We will get to see more of the Google Apps with the Progressive Web Apps for ChromeOS in the coming days.

Google will soon come up with the list of such apps which will be replaced with the Progressive Web Apps. We will update you with more information in the coming days.
