Google releases Chrome Desktop for Android

Google has released its Chrome Remote Desktop for Android, allowing smartphone and tablet users to control their computers.

Remote Desktop works with a Chrome extension and subsequent Host app on Windows or OS X to take control of registered computers for work, technical support, or a little fun.

Computers must register with a valid Google account and, for security purposes, enter a PIN for verification.

Similar to other VNC or remote desktop applications, Chrome Remote Desktop lets you left-click and double-tap to your heart’s content, and performance is excellent over both WiFi and 4G.

Google says it is working on an iOS version of the app that will debut later this year.

Get it on Google Play
