Chrome Web Store Now Links to Play Store If The App has Android Version

What can you do when your company makes two different operating systems, complete with their own apps store? Here is a tip from Google, let your users know about both versions of the same app, and invite them to use both!

Google has added a link to Chrome apps with an Android version, linking to their Google Play pages, with an invitation to try it out. “Available for Android – Get it” the message reads.


Users can search and filter apps available on Android, making this feature even more useful for Android lovers. The left sidebar now offers search filter with the following options:

  • Runs Offline
  • By Google
  • Free
  • Available for Android


I doubt if we will see similar efforts on the Google Play Store any time soon, but on Chrome, this is a welcome change.
