(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – On Thursday, Google launched a new app that lets users remotely access their PC or Mac from their Android tablets or smartphones.
The “Chrome Remote Desktop app for Android” is an extension of its 2011 Chrome Remote Desktop screen-sharing service, TechCrunch reports.
“If you haven’t used Chrome Remote Desktop in the past, you can get started by enabling your Windows or Mac machine for remote access through the Chrome Web Store app. Next, simply launch the Android app on your phone or tablet, tap on the computer’s name and start using your remote machine as if you were sitting right in front of it,” says Google’s Chrome blog.
As of right now, only Android devices are compatible with this app, but Google says it intends to release and iOS app later in the year.
The Chrome Remote Desktop Android app is available from Google Play.
