What is the Chrome Web Store?

You can find apps, extensions, and browser themes for the Google Chrome browser in the Chrome Web Store. With these additions, you can do more with Chrome.

 

Get more done with apps for Chrome

You can use apps to create documents, edit photos, play games, listen to music, and more.

There are two types of apps:

  • Apps that work like regular websites (For example, Gmail or Google Calendar).
  • Apps that work like software programs on your desktop, relying on certain features of Chrome (For example, Google Keep).

Here are some benefits of using apps:

  • Apps install quickly, without restarting your computer or browser.
  • Your apps are always available when you sync apps across multiple computers.
  • Apps are always up-to-date because they are hosted on the web.
  • Apps won’t crash your computer. If you have trouble with an app, close its tab.
  • You can easily find and open the app using app launcher.
