Google have released a new extension for their popular web browser Chrome, the new extension is called Chrome Remote Desktop BETA and is the first instalment on a capability allowing users to remotely access another computer through Chrome. The BETA is just that, a beta and Google want feedback on the core Chrome Remoting technology included.
This version of Chrome Remote Desktop BETA allows users to share with or get access to another computer anywhere in the world (as long as its connected to the Internet) by providing a one-time authentication code. Access is given only to the specific person the user identifies for one time only and the sharing session is completely secure.
A potential of Chrome Remote Desktop BETA is support roles, a helpdesk can use the Chrome Remote Desktop BETA to help another user, while the user can receive all the help they need all at the comfort of their chair. Additional use cases such as being able to access your own computer remotely are coming soon. Chrome Remote Desktop BETA is fully cross-platform which means you can use it on any computer that has a Chrome browser including Windows, Linux, Mac and Chromebooks.
