How to Update Chrome Web Apps?

I’m actually quite surprised that I can’t find any related help documents from Google about this matter. So as a Chrome Web App creator, I think I should write it myself.

On a Mac:

  1. Make sure you are in the application called Chrome.
  2. Click Window -> Extensions (a new tab should be opened).
  3. Click Developer mode (the blue link with a + icon on the right hand side).
  4. Click update extensions now button (the third one from the left, the first one from the right).
  5. Nothing seems to happen, but everything is actually updated in a matter of half seconds.

On a PC:

Coming soon… (Sorry Windows users.)

    Shame this is still required 1 year later. Why can’t Chrome just check it for you, and do a silent update?!
