The day that Google finally abandons the Chrome applications, they will stop having updates, they will not receive new functions, but they will remain active as until that day so we can continue using them. Simply, Google will not include new applications from other brands or renew them with updates.
None of this affects Chrome extensions, the functions that we can install and use in the browser. These are more popular and enrich the browser with a wide variety of possibilities that make their use more productive and agile.
