Google is finally ready to make Chromebook apps easier to use

Although users of the best Chromebooks have access to three types of apps – web apps running through the Chrome browser, apps in the Google Play Store, and apps running in the Linux development environment – ​​they can often be disorganized and difficult to find. However, a brand new online store will now make that task much easier.

According to 9to5Googleit looks like Google will launch the online tool App Mall, with which Chromebook users can find new apps. Currently the App Mall is in early testing and locked behind a flag in chrome://flags, but we do know that the Mall will eventually link to a website (for now the site is not live).

So far, we can assume that this new App Mall will initially include Android, web and gaming apps as these are already included in the built-in ‘Explore’ app. Later we should get other features as well.
