Google intros Chrome Remote Desktop for Android


Google on Wednesday announced the availability of a new Chrome Remote Desktop app for Android. As you can surmise, the tool allows for Android devices users to remotely access PC/Mac computers.

Since 2011, Chrome Remote Desktop has let you remotely access your machine from another laptop or computer in a free, easy and secure way.

In order for a user to access a remote PC they will need to first install software on the computer as well as the Android app – both of which are free. Once set up, users should be able to access files from their mobile device.  Users will be able to access files from their Android device in the same manner as if they were at the desk.

An iOS version of Chrome Remote Desktop mobile app is due later this year.
