Access other computers or allow another user to access your computer securely over the Internet.
World is celebrating Android 4.2 and Nexus 7 today. There is a little something happening in the Chrome OS world too. Chrome Remote Desktop is out of beta. You can now control your PC from another PC or Chromebook. Oh wait, it works in Macs too!
One year ago, we launched Chrome Remote Desktop in beta. From adjusting printer settings on your mom’s computer to finding a lost file on your dad’s laptop, Chrome Remote Desktop has made you the family hero by helping you remotely access other computers — including your own — via Chrome. Now, we are taking Chrome Remote Desktop out of beta, by adding some additional features.
New features include the addition of a real time audio feed (on Windows). This can be handy if you want to listen to that MP3 music collection you have stored on a computer at home. Now you can also copy-and-paste between your local and remote computers.
Chrome Remote Desktop is a great companion tool for your new Samsung Chromebook, allowing you to remote into your PC or Mac at home while you bring your portable and easy-to use Chromebook with you on the go.
We have more features in the works that will make Chrome Remote Desktop even more powerful. We’ll post updates here when they’re ready.
Another reason to get yourself a Chromebook. Or are you getting a Nexus 7?
