Chrome Remote Desktop

Google today released a new Android app called Chrome Remote Desktop. This app is similar to the Microsoft Remote Desktop app which allows you to securely access Windows PCs over internet. On each of your computers, set up remote access using the Chrome Remote Desktop app from Chrome Web Store: https://chrome.google.com/remotedesktop and on your Android device, open the app and tap on any of your online computers to connect.

Chrome Remote Desktop allows users to remotely access another computer through Chrome browser or a Chromebook.  Computers can be made available on an short-term basis for scenarios such as ad hoc remote support, or on a more long-term basis for remote access to your applications and files.  All connections are fully secured.

Chrome Remote Desktop is fully cross-platform.  Provide remote assistance to Windows, Mac and Linux users, or access your Windows (XP and above) and Mac (OS X 10.6 and above) desktops at any time, all from the Chrome browser on virtually any device, including Chromebooks.

Download it here from Play Store.

    Give them access to my PC from my Android device so they can grab even more information? No thanks, Google.
    And yes, I do have a Android device – a Galaxy Tab. I never log into anything that has personal information, no Facebook, no bank web sites, etc. and it does not have my credit card info, I buy Play gift cards from the grocery store.

    PC Remote Pro app for WP8 has worked superb for me, using it almost daily. But thanks anyway for the Chromium Picolinato :):):)
