Difference between CRAN and R Studio package manager

Hi Team,

Wanted to understand the main difference between CRAN and RStudio package manager.
As far as my understanding,

Both these are repository system that has all packages required to build shiny applications. For example when we install.packages("dplyr"), it means it downloads from CRAN (https://cran.r-project.org/).
But why is there a need to install Rstudio package manager when CRAN does all the job for us?

Can anyone help me please?

Package Manager has additional benefits that CRAN hasn't, like precompiled binaries for supported Linux distributions and specific date snapshots to make reproducibility easier.
