Google Remote-Computer Access Service Now Available to iOS Users Too

January 19, 2015, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Unlocking your remote computer is never a hard task, if you own one of those Android services. This has been possible mainly due to the Chrome Remote desktop app that Google gave us.  Better still, iOS users too can make these services theirs.

Google has announced that their Chrome Remote desktop app is now available for download on iTunes, and that it will let them access their remote computers over the web. All they need to have is the same app installed in their computer.

For those who are not familiar with the services, this is how it works. For accessing the remote computers via your smartphone, Google requires the Chrome Remote desktop app to be installed on both on your PC from the Chrome Web Store 9, as well as on smartphone from the respective app stores.


Users can set up the remote access on the PC app, following which the smartphone app can be used to trigger the connection with online computers, by means of self-generated codes.

Chrome Remote Desktop allows the access for only a short period of time and is also supported on cross-platforms, which includes PCs running on Windows, Linux or Mac.

The app is handy for those who wish to swap info when staying at remote locations from your home computers, and also to give access to your friends for accessing some concealed data.

Google made the services available first on Play Store for Android devices last year and was given a good reception by the users. Following this, they have extended the app to iOS devices now. The app is available for free download.
