Google has released a new app launcher for Windows users. The Chrome app launcher is designed specially to help Chrome users opening the web apps outside the browser. With this Chrome app launcher the packaged apps can be launched from outside, instead of running as a tab inside the Chrome browser.
Sriram Saroop, Google product manager posted in the official blog that the app launcher is presently available only for the Windows users and will soon be made available for Linux and Mac.
Saroop said, This is the same experience as the app launcher on Chromebooks, but for other platforms. It’s available on Windows now, and will be coming to Mac OS X and Linux soon”. App Launcher is a dedicated home for your apps which makes them easy to open outside the browser. The packaged apps launch outside the browser and work offline by default.
