A new set of tools announced by Google will help developers port their apps from the Chrome desktop browser to Android and iOS — part of an effort by the search giant to expand the reach of Chrome as a software platform.
Google’s move is interesting because it lets developers create a unified experience that runs on iOS, Android, Windows, OS X and Chrome OS. While Microsoft has unified the core of Windows and Windows Phone to make it easier to develop between the platforms, Google’s offering allows devs to build one app and reach a much wider audience, including the two dominant mobile operating systems.
It was in September that Google announced Chrome apps for the desktop that were are able to work offline, and only last month that they finally launched on Mac OSX. While there aren’t a vast number off Chrome apps currently available, we’re sure the ability to write up apps for Chrome and wrap them in an Android shell will bring an influx of new apps. What this means for Android is anyone’s guess at this point.
Google is currently previewing its toolset too see if any improvements can be made to it.
