Google launches Chrome Remote Desktop app

Written by Fudzilla staff



One Android to rule them all

Google’s Chrome Remote Desktop has been around for a couple of years, but now it’s finally coming to Android in the form of an app. Like Splashtop or Teamviewer, the app will allow users to access and control their Windows boxes and Macs using an Android device. 

It is not exactly a new concept, but Google clearly thinks it can bring a few new features to the table. The Chrome Remote Desktop app for Android is completely free, unlike some competitors. Better yet, an iOS version is coming later this year. To make it all run users simply need to download a desktop client from the Chrome Web Store and install the app. The app is tiny, just 2.1MB. It is compatible with Android 4.0 and later OS versions.

Microsoft released its remote desktop apps for iOS, Mac OS X and Android last October. Redmond’s solution is surprisingly good, with top notch NLA security and high quality audio and video streaming. If you'd like to try out Google's new app, you can download it at the Play Store.
