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 that run through Chrome’s browser, apps on the Google Play Store, and apps that run using Linux development environment – they can often be disorganized and difficult to find. However, a brand-new online storefront will now make that task much easier.

According to 9to5Google, it seems Google will be launching the online tool App Mall, which will help Chromebook users find new apps. Currently, the App Mall is in early testing and is locked behind a flag in chrome://flags, but we do know that eventually the Mall will be a link to a website discover.apps.chrome (for now the site isn’t live).

So far we can assume that this new App Mall will feature Android, web, and game apps at the start since they’re already included in the built-in ‘Explore’ app. Later on, we should be getting other features as well.
