Did Google Just Put Chrome OS in Apple Apps Store?

Let me ask you something before we discuss this news. What is Chrome OS? A browser, and then you get access to Web Apps (most of the times just websites) and Google Web Apps come pre-installed.

Google recently pushed an updated Google Search App for iOS. There is an “Applications” icon on the homepage of this app which opens up a menu similar to Chrome OS Apps. Here is the screenshot.

Now, this is not Chrome OS for iOS, but, it is pretty much the same concept and motive right?  to get more people on the web through Google and make them use web apps as a replacement for local apps.

This menu is still just the good old “glorified bookmarks” style but, that’s how it is on Chrome OS too right? Here is how Google introduced this  “Applications” menu in their blog post. “We’ve also made it easier to find and use your favorite Google services like Google News, Calendar and more in the new Apps menu. Tap on an icon to quickly read an email in Gmail, or share a post on Google+ within the slide-in pane”

So, did Google sneak in Chrome OS in to your iPad?

  1. I want a chrome os tablet just with this app and the chrome web store. I buy it in a second.

  2. Very misleading article, the fact that the new search and all Google products are being streamlined to look similar and clearer (which seems to be the case of the updated search app. the apps have been in the Chrome browser tab for a while. I am happy to see that the new search is getting a separate “tab” for apps, as it has had the apps for a while too but they looked different.
