The tech giant on Thursday unveiled plans to launch a new online-only service for web-connected devices, making it easier for web users to access content from their own home computers.
The new service, which the company is calling the WebView, will allow users to open web pages from the Chrome browser, Chrome OS, and Android phones and tablets without having to sign up for a separate account.
It will also allow users access to some content that doesn’t require an additional account.
The announcement was made at the Google I/O developer conference in San Francisco.
It marks Google’s first major attempt at making its web-only services more accessible to the wider web.
Earlier this month, Google launched an app called Chrome, which allows users to download applications for free on the Google Play Store.
The new service was unveiled at a panel at the event that featured Microsoft and Netflix, which Google announced in June will be making its online-first service available to Android phones.
Google also introduced a new app for Windows Phones, the Windows App, that will let users download apps from the Microsoft Store and use them on Windows phones and other devices.
The app will allow Android phones to download and install apps from Microsoft Store, as well as add content to their apps.
It is still not clear how much of the new Windows App will work with Chrome.
