In this day and age, working outside of the office has proven to be pretty normal, thanks to the ever increasing computing power that we find in notebooks as well as other mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. I am quite sure that the corporate types out there would have come across a situation when one is outside of the office and require a file urgently that happens to be stuck on your home computer. Life’s as you know it is not over yet, as Chrome Remote Desktop allows you to remotely access your machine from another laptop or computer since 2011 in a free, easy and secure manner. Well, buckle up and fast forward to 2014, and we have the Chrome Remote Desktop app for Android released, letting you do the same straight from your Android-powered device.
For those who have yet to enjoy the wonders of Chrome Remote Desktop, why not get started today by enabling your Windows or Mac machine for remote access via the Chrome Web Store app? Once you have done so, and happen to own an Android-powered device, all you need to do would be to launch the Android app on your smartphone or tablet, tap on the computer’s name, and you are good to go when it comes to using your remote machine as though you were physically right in front of it. There will be an iOS version of the app that is set to roll out later this year, but Android users can download the app from the Play Store here. [Press Release]
