Developer's Description

The new Google Chat standalone app is a Progressive Web Application (PWA), which provides a fast, reliable, and engaging way to use Chat on any desktop device with the Google Chrome Web browser. Once users install the app, it integrates with their device's operating system to function like a native app offering simple and efficient Chat experience.
Whether in a 1:1 chat or a dedicated group workspace, Chat makes it easy to collaborate with your team in an organized way. Share and discuss Docs, Sheets, and Slides all in one place.
Work seamlessly with other apps. Schedule meetings, create tasks, or get updates from your team right within Chat. In addition to useful integrations with G Suite apps, Chat connects to several third-party tools, helping you manage all of your work in one place.
Securely message your team from any device. Chat is built with leading enterprise-grade security including mobile device management, single-sign-on, two-factor authentication, admin settings, compliance, and Vault retention, holds, search and export.

The Chat PWA offers simple app deployment and management. It's:
Secure: The app is kept up to date with Chrome, so the updated app has the latest security patches.
Fast and simple: Auto-updates also mean users have the latest version without extra process or keeping track of separate updates.
Easier to distribute: Admins can deploy the app to all of their users in the Admin console.
Broadly compatible: The PWA runs on any device with Google Chrome browser version 73 and up. This means it works on Windows, MacOS, Chrome OS, and Linux devices.

Chat is offered to G Suite customers at no additional cost.
