Create a Chrome app collection

For administrators who manage Chrome Browser or Chrome devices for a business or school.

As an administrator, you can recommend a collection of Chrome apps and extensions for users in your organization. You can include public and private apps in a collection. Private apps, available only to your users and people you share a link with, appear alongside public apps in the Chrome Web Store.
