Recently, Google released a Chrome Installer app in the Microsoft Store, which is just a directed user to download link to install the software application. MS isn’t impressed with Google’s obvious snub of the Windows Microsoft Store, and it’s taking action.
“We have removed the Google Chrome Installer App from MS Store, as it violates our MS Store policies,” says an MS speaker in a report to The Verge.
Citing the essential to make sure that the applications “provide unique and distinct value,” MS Company says “we welcome Google to build an MS Store browser application compliant with our MS Store policies.”
Most of the Windows 10 software’s don’t support Windows 10 S applications, so Google probably won’t develop a special version just to get its browser planned in the Windows Microsoft Store. Google can’t just set its existing Pc’s application into a Centennial Windows Microsoft Store application, moreover. MS is clear about any store applications having to use the Edge rendering engine.
The Verge knows that the Google-developed this Chrome Installer app to combat the fake Chrome Installer app that can be found in the Windows MS Store, a problem MS has been trying to address for years. Google’s workaround has now been detached from the Windows Store, so Windows 10 users will have to freely use MS Edge to use the download site for Chrome if they want to use Google’s browser.
This isn’t the first time Google and Microsoft have clashed over browsers. Both Google and Microsoft have a YouTube application for Windows smartphone, Microsoft aimed Google with “Scroogled” commercials, and MS has also analyzed Chrome’s battery usage. We’ve reached out to Google to see if this is battles that will go on, but the company does not point out on the removal.
