What you'll be installing is known as a Progressive Web App (PWA). This type of app differs from downloading software, the reason being that these types of applications are developed through the web.

  1. A prompt to install will appear as a 'Plus Sign Icon' within the address bar of Chrome.
  2. Click the 'Plus Sign Icon'
  3. Click 'Install'
