Since last year Google has been building a remote desktop management application for Android called “Chromoting.” The app isn’t being publicly distributed right now, development is well underway. It appears that Google has plans of launching the app on IOS as well, this has been discovered recently through a post on the Chromium issue tracker. The Chromoting app will allow users to do what pretty much other remote desktop apps let users do, control their computers from a mobile device, like a tablet or a smartphone.
So far the features that the app is going to offer have not been revealed, but it appears that Chromoting is going to be a simple remote desktop app that simply lets users access their computers remotely, nothing too out of the ordinary. Given that the Android version has been in development for a long, long time, its would be a safe bet to say that it will be publicly released a lot earlier than the iOS version, which is said to be in early development right now. One major advantage that Chromoting will have over its rivals, without offering any significantly outstanding features, will be the price. As opposed to other remote desktop apps, Google’s Chromoting app for iOS and Android will cost absolutely nothing at all.
