VCV Community App

What is this???

Push notifications?

Haven’t seen this before, but it probably uses some browser API to put an icon on your desktop that simply launches the website in a window.

Maybe related to this Discourse update last week:

Seems so.

Apparently, it’s a Chrome feature (Chromium, as it now appears in the new MS Edge, as well) to package web sites as apps. I’m not sure what the advantage is.

I’m not sure if it’s possible to log in using the “app” since the VCV Community is tied to VCV accounts. Someone try it.

I can’t figure out how to remove it, so I guess it’ll stay.

I use it like this on my phone (Android). Logged in and posting as we speak.
