Chrome Remote Desktop for Android

As far as power user features go, a remote desktop app is up there in terms of hardcore functionality. That doesn't mean there aren't plenty of options even on mobile, and Google is getting ready to get in on the game with its Chrome Remote Desktop app that has just dropped into Google Play. Unfortunately this isn't available for just anyone — it's in a closed beta right now, and few people have access at this point.

We do have the screenshots from the Play Store listing, though, and a quick indication of how it's working. Remote Desktop functionality has been built into Chrome and Chrome OS for some time, and actually works quite well on the desktop side of things. If Google can bring that experience over to mobile, we can see more than a few people taking advantage — especially on larger devices with 7-inch or higher screen sizes that can manipulate a desktop environment. The best part about Google getting in on the game is it provides another great free option to choose from.

Unless you're one of the lucky few who was invited to the closed beta you'll be waiting a while to see this for yourself, but at least we know it's coming.
