Last month, Google announced that developers creating applications for the Chrome web store may now start uploading their applications to their database. The Chrome Web Store is scheduled to open later this year and will allow users to access these applications from any web browser (and not necessarily Google Chrome).
Now if you are a developer and are looking to create apps, Google has published a clean video on the procedure to go about publishing your app on the web store. To begin with, users have to login to chrome.google.com/extensions and click on the ‘Publish your extensions‘ link on the left sidebar. You may simply follow the directions to finally complete the upload. This includes specifying a pricing for your app. You may also indicate whether this shall be a one-time payment or a recurring subscription – a great way for media publications to monetize their free content. You may also choose to use your own payment gateway and offer free trials. Check out the video below for a complete walk-through.
