Google has offered its Chrome remote desktop app for some time but now users can take advantage of the new web version by heading over to remotedesktop.google.com/access. For better or worse desktop users will soon lose the Remote Desktop app in favor of the new web version, which offers all the remote desktop functionality right from Google Chrome.
Chrome Remote Desktop setup page:
Users will have the ability to share their desktop or request access to other computers directly from the Remote Support menu. There’s an auto-generating code system which gives out a 12 number combination valid for 5 minutes, which will have to be entered on the other device in order to receive access.
Chrome Remote Desktop Support page:
The current remote desktop app will be supported until June 30 and after that PC users will need to migrate to the web version. Android and iOS users get to keep the app although if you enable the desktop view on Chrome mobile you can, in fact, use the remote support functionality straight from the browser.
