For more information about apps and extensions, read the information below:
An app is like a program on your Macbook or Windows computer. It's a stand-alone program that does something on its own. Apps open in their own window on a Chromebook. Many apps are also just websites and can be opened in Chrome also. Google Keep is an example of an app.
An extension is an add-on to the Chrome browser that adds functionality to it. Extensions let you do extra things in the Chrome browser. They don't work outside of the Chrome browser. Some extensions work on all websites. Some extensions only work on specific websites. Announcify is an example of an extension.
Some apps and extensions require you to give them access to your Google account. This permission usually only needs to be allowed the first time you use it.
Apps and extensions are installed to your Google account. When you log in to a different Chromebook, all of your extensions and apps are installed. Apps and extensions that you install on a Chromebook are not there for others that log in to that Chromebook. Apps and extensions are only installed for your account.
