Google has just released an updated timeline on the Chromium Blog so that you can see how you plan support for the next few years. The company made its initial announcement in January when it said the Chrome Web Store would end support for Chrome Apps. It’s important to note that this policy applies only to Chrome Apps in the Chrome Web Store and does not affect Chrome extensions.

Google explained that the announcement was made because the modern web has taken a big step forward and provides users with a first-class experience. The company will continue to invest in a wealth of new features on the Web platform and is committed to moving the Web forward.
According to a recently announced schedule, the Chrome Web Store has stopped receiving submissions to Chrome Apps since March 2020, but existing apps will remain in service until June 2022.
However, to accommodate corporate customers, Google has appropriately adjusted this policy so that business administrators continue to submit private and private new apps to the Chrome Web Store.
The revised timeline adds that by June 2021, the company will end universal support for Chrome Apps on Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms.
However, Chrome OS will continue to provide support over the 12-month extension period without any adjustments to the policy or settings.
Eventually, by June 2022, the Chrome Web Store will stop receiving any form of Chrome Apps altogether.
At the same time, Google will end support for NaCl, PNaCl, and PPAPI on all platforms.
