Google: Chrome Remote Desktop lets you remotely access and controlother computers

From now, Chrome Remote Desktop will be the talk of the town. It is a new Chrome Extension that lets you remotely access other computers from your browser. We can say it is the first software that has come out with the “Chromoting” technology and it will be very useful if you’ve a Chromebook.
In order to demonstrate the core Chrome Remoting technology and get feedback from users, the beta version has been released. This version enables the users to share with or get access to another computer by providing a one-time authentication code. You can get the access only once if the user enters the authentication code. Moreover, the sharing session will be fully secured. This can be widely used in the remote IT Helpdesk case. They can use the Chrome Remote Desktop BETA to help another user while conversely a user can receive help by setting up a sharing session without leaving their desk. Besides, you will be soon able to access your own computer remotely.

Chrome Remote Desktop BETA is a complete cross-platform that lets you connect any two computers that have the Chrome browser. The compatible operating systems are Windows, Linus, Mac and Chromebooks.
The size of the extensions will be more than 17MB. Therefore, it is required to wait a little bit until the download and installation process is finished. Once the extension is successfully installed, it is required to click the new icon from the new page and Chrome Remote Desktop that prompts to "grant extended access permissions" to the computer.
