Remote desktops are nothing new, but Google has now released a slick app that makes the process a pleasure rather than wildly frustrating. The new software will let you control your Mac or PC from any Android device.
Chrome Remote Desktop app for Android -- snappy! -- is an extension of existing Google software that allows to control your desktop remotely from within Chrome. But this is way more useful for those on the go. Getting it working is simple enough: download the helper app for your computer from the Chrome Web Store (XP and up, OS X 10.6 and above, and Linux too) and install the remote desktop app on your Android from Google Play. Then, you should be able to open the app and connect to any of your computers and do, well, whatever you need to do.
