I have been following the development for Chrome Remote Desktop App for Android for sometime now. With the help of a friend, I even managed to build the APK from source and try it out. (Read the hands on here).
The scene was silent for a while. But this week, I hear more chatter about the app on Chromium commits. The best of all that chatter happened today.
The team just published the content that they are going to use on the Google Play Store for the Android app. That’s the kind of task you do when you are preparing the app for release, right?
So, here is the text: (emphasis added)
