Google have just released their Chrome Remote Desktop app, and while Google’s remote desktop services have been available for a few years now, this is the first time they’ve officially been on Android in the form of an App. Much in the sameway that services such as Splashtop work, the app allows you to remotely view your desktop screen, giving you absolute control of your Windows PC or Mac from anywhere with an internet connection.
The big deal here though is the price, it is free! Services such as Splashtop charge money for remote desktop access, only providing “remote” access for those on the same local network. The app is only a tiny 2.1MB download for your Android 4.0 or higher phone and you’ll need do install the Chrome Web Store plugin.
If you want to check out the app, all you have to do is hit up the Google Play Store here, give it a go and let us know what you think in the comments section below. This is especially great news for myself since I installed Splashtop a few days ago and didn’t want to pay to get all the features, I’ll take Google’s free version over that any day.
