mobile apps

We’re used to having apps and software for desktop computers and then millions of options, apps, for our phones. However, there’s a push by Microsoft and Google to bring mobile apps to a desktop environment.

The WSJ reports, “On Thursday, Google, a unit of Alphabet Inc., said the Google Play app store will soon be able to install Android apps on Chromebook laptops as well as on the lesser-known Chromebase all-in-one computers, Chromebox desktops and computer-in-a-stick Chromebits.”

This means that your favorite mobile app will soon be available as a desktop version too. There’s lots of development that needs to be done to have a fully working app, work on a desktop, but the evolution has long begun.
