The app is basically a fancier version of VNC – a technology that has existed for literally decades to control other PCs. Chrome Remote Desktop though makes setting up connections easier and the whole process pretty straightforward.
Chrome Remote Desktop App :
Securely access your computers from your iOS device.
– On each of your computers, set up remote access using the Chrome Remote Desktop app from Chrome Web Store.
– On your iOS device, open the app and tap on any of your online computers to connect.
In addition to allowing access from an iOS device with the new app, Google’s Chrome Remote Desktop feature also allows computer-to-computer access, which Google suggests is useful for securely accessing files on one machine from another or giving a friend temporary access to help solve a computer problem.
