Google is planning to enable developers to use an alternative browser-based API for accessing its apps, after the launch of a new platform called Chrome OS.
“This is a huge step forward for Chrome OS,” Google’s Chrome OS project lead, Jason Koob, said in a blog post on Thursday.
He explained that this API will allow apps to access information stored on their devices that can be accessed with the Chrome OS browser, and will make it possible for apps to interact with a variety of data stores.
A Chrome OS developer will be able to access data stored on the device by providing the Chrome app with a path to a local file system, or by sending an HTTP GET request to the local file systems API.
Google says this API is meant to allow developers the ability to create apps for Android, iOS, Windows, and other platforms.
The company also says that this will allow users to use Chrome OS as a native browser on those devices.
It’s important to note that this is a new way for developers to access Google Apps, and it won’t be supported in Chrome OS for the foreseeable future.
Developers will be limited to just the Chrome API.
In an effort to give developers more control over how their apps are accessed, Google has added the ability for developers with more than a few apps to create their own custom API, which is still limited to using the Chrome APIs.
Google will also be adding support for APIs that are “third-party extensions,” which are extensions that aren’t actually built directly by Google.
Google has already introduced a new feature called “Chrome Web Apps” to make it easier for developers, like myself, to build apps for ChromeOS.
This allows developers to make their own APIs and build apps with Google’s framework.
The feature was added to the Chrome Web Store on Thursday, allowing developers to create APIs that can work in conjunction with the new APIs that ChromeOS developers will be using.
Google also announced plans to enable more Chrome OS apps to be hosted on third-party hosting providers, which will help them keep their apps up to date and allow them easier access to the platform’s API.
