Now use chrome browser to help your friends, parents or your colleagues to troubleshoot technical issues or show them the how to’s technical about computers or be it even asking them to use word or paint and turn your computer into a I.T remote assistance tool without any other remote assistance software and do it with the help of Chrome browser + Chrome Remote Desktop chrome extension.

Chrome Remote Desktop BETA is fully cross-platform, so you can connect any two computers that have a Chrome browser, including Windows, Linux, Mac and Chrome books. The extension is 19 Mb in size unlike other chrome extension it takes time to install.

After installing the extension click on launch app which requires to be logged in to any Google account and on a new page you will be asked to grant one time access permission and share with the other computer using a onetime unique access code that is generated on the browser screen. After 2 attempts we managed to share the desktop screen and started to play around with the extension.

Note: the both the computer should have the chrome browser along with the chrome remote desktop extension and the browser which creates unique code is the client whose desktop screen will be shared. Also both the chrome browser should be logged in with Google account to launch the extension
