Google Releases New Offline-Online Apps for Desktop

by S.Roy on September 9, 2013

Chrome apps, until now, worked only over the web. Google has launched a new type of Chrome app that can work offline as well as on other operating systems, apart from Google OS itself. The release coincides with the 5th anniversary of the Chrome browser and symbolizes at a greater leap for Google.

According to Google, these apps resemble smartphone apps in functionality and combine the best of offline and online apps. These work without an internet connection and allows plug in hardware, such as USB keys and digital cameras. However, they can also receive security updates automatically, access Google Cloud and also let users sync across multiple devices.

According to Brian Blau, a research director at Gartner, Google appears to be targeting software developers with this move. In one sweep, they seem to be powering developers with the option of writing apps that run on multiple systems rather than choose from various types of OS. Developers are being cleverly invited to try Google products instead of opting for its rivals.
