Google is yet to make an official statement but it has removed the "Apps" section from Chrome and has started emailing developers about the same, leaving only the "extensions" and "themes" tab to choose from. Google has started sending out emails to Chrome app developers telling them that Chrome Apps are deprecated, and while previously installed apps still work, the functionality will be stripped out of Chrome in Q1 2018.
As Google explained in its blog post previous year, Chrome apps are being killed because no one uses them.
Google had announced back in August 2016 that it would end Chrome apps across Windows, Mac and Linux platforms citing the reason that less than 1 percent of users were using them. The email confirms that Chrome Apps won't be found anymore for users on Windows, Mac, and Linux and that Google intends for Progressive Web Apps to replace Chrome Apps. "Packaged apps", which were the more powerful applications which were capable of running in the background and could access ports on the device. Both were desktop-only features, and now both will exist as Chrome OS-only features. In the email sent to developers, Google said they will be working to bring Progressive Web Apps to Desktops with a mid-2018 target date for that functionality anticipated at this stage.
Support for Progessive Web Apps is becoming more available, with Microsoft building support for PWAs into Windows 10, and Apple is similarly building support for PWAs into Safari. Because of this, other companies are jumping on the PWA bandwagon: it works on Samsung Android phones in the Samsung browser, Firefox on Android, and Opera on Android. Chrome will not fully remove support for Chrome Apps on Windows, Mac or Linux until after Desktop PWA installability becomes available in 2018.
