Google releases Chrome Remote Desktop Beta

It seems that a remote desktop app has come available for Chrome users. The app is called Chrome Remote Desktop Beta and will work with the Chrome web browser as well as with Chrome OS running notebooks. The Chrome Remote Desktop Beta app is noted as requiring nothing more than having both the main computer and the one that is being accessed as running the Chrome browser. Otherwise, the app is free to download and free to use. That being said, the Chrome Web Store has the app described as being;

Chrome Remote Desktop BETA is the first installment on a capability allowing users to remotely access another computer through the Chrome browser or a Chromebook.

The goal of this beta release is to demonstrate the core Chrome Remoting technology and get feedback from users. This version enables users to share with or get access to another computer 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 fully secured. One potential use of this version is the remote IT helpdesk case. The helpdesk 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. Additional use cases such as being able to access your own computer remotely are coming soon.
