In the wake of Google's decision to kill off Chrome Apps like Remote Desktop for Mac, Windows and Linux users, Google is about to launch a web portal for Chrome Remote Desktop. "Another update will be posted here when a new date for the Chrome Apps EOL on Windows, Mac, and Linux has been finalized".

Google's replacement for Chrome apps will come in the form of what it refers to as PWAs or progressive web apps.
