Google launched its Chrome Remote Desktop app for iOS after a release on Android devices last year.
The new app for iOS allows Chrome users to access their Mac or PC desktop computers remotely using an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
To access a PC or Mac remotely with the new tool, users are first required to install the Chrome Remote Desktop on their computer, which is available as a free download from the Chrome Web Store. Once the both apps installed, users can access their computers on an iOS device through the Chrome browser with just a couple of taps after verifying through a generated code.
Users are also provided with the option of either trackpad or touch mode, and gestures control a verity of functions like scrolling, zooming, and click-drag.
According to the company, a significant benefit to using Chrome’s browser and accompanying iOS app is multi-platform support. The app supports remote assistance on PCs running Windows and Linux. Finally, Chromebook users can remotely access at-home computers in the similar way.
The Chrome Remote Desktop app is available for download from the App Store for free.
