On Tuesday Windows users were in a state of shock and surprise as Google quietly released the Chrome Installer app on the Microsoft Store for Windows 10 Store. But a very strange thing is that Microsoft did not let it last long on the store and app was taken back just few hours after its release due to violation of its store policies as described by the Microsoft in a statement.

The browser is not available for download from the Microsoft Store making things worse for Windows 10 users who are limited to the Microsoft Store for installation of all the apps.

According to a spokesperson the app was taken back just few hours after its release due to violation of its store policies and these apps should provide unique and distinct value and we at Microsoft urge and wants Google to build a Microsoft Store browser app compliant with the Microsoft Store policies. Microsoft also confirmed that Google Chrome won’t be published on the Microsoft Windows Store. To be on the Window 10 app store Google Chrome browser should use the appropriate HTML and JavaScript engines provided by the Windows Platform that compile to their policy which leads to Windows 10 users stuck with Microsoft Edge and Bing on their devices.

Google Chrome installer had only a single 1 star rating and the reviews were very negative previously. Google has never supported Windows Store, due to which it was a very big surprise to see Chrome installer on the Microsoft Store. Google Chrome is based on the rendering engine Google’s Blink whereas for Microsoft Store apps must use HTML and JavaScript engines provided by Windows 10. Google had issued the new Chrome Installer app and it will come soon in the market if speculations have to be believed to take on the fake third-party apps which have a habit of imitating the Chrome browser on the Microsoft Store.

Microsoft and Google have been fighting the browser war or long now. Windows 10 in August last year had urged users to ditch using Google Chrome and switch on to using Edge as Edge browser offers more than 2 hours battery life that of  Google Chrome as told by Microsoft this year in August. Microsoft had also slammed Google for poor YouTube experience on Windows Phone way back in 2013.

Recently Google Chrome announced that it would make sure that an ad blocker comes on the browser from 15th February 2018. This move comes after Google formally joined the Coalition of Better Ads earlier this year.

This installer helps you get the official Google Chrome, which is a fast and safe browser from Google and Windows 10 S is incompatible with apps like Google Chrome. To use Google Chrome one should upgrade for free that to for a limited time to Windows 10 Pro  and Your app must not jeopardize or compromise user security or the security or functionality of the device, system or related systems. Apps that browse the web must use the appropriate HTML and JavaScript engines provided by the Windows Platform,” according to the Windows store guidelines.
