Chrome Remote Desktop: An answer to your desktop access needs

ChromeREmote

Google has released an innovative new app that allows you to access your PC or Mac from your mobile device. This app is absolutely free and is accessible over WiFi, LTE, and 3G. It runs buttery smooth on a solid connection so 3G is not suggested unless you desperately need to send that important file you forgot to yourself.

Google has made it very simple to set up. If you already have Google Chrome for desktop all you need is to download the app for Chrome and then download the app for Android or iPhone.

Google has also hit all areas with this handy app making it available on Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS. When you have finished the required downloads the app on your PC or MAC will ask some basic questions so that you can allow access to your mobile devices. Once you have gone through the set up and created your pin your PC will show up on the mobile app.

Google has really covered almost all bases with this app the only back draw to it is there is no way to disable the keyboard and mouse while you access. This is inconvenient in a work environment allowing other users to access your machine while you’re away and or seeing what you’re seeing. It is suggested to use a tablet and a mobile keyboard with trackpad. All in all though I give this app a very positive reveiw , allowing you to access any set up computer for free and fluidly, and we suggest you check it out.
