If you stayed away from Chrome Remote Desktop until now because it carried the Beta tag, you don’t need to do so anymore. Chrome Remote Desktop is no longer a Beta product.

Chrome Remote Desktop is a handy tool that allows you to remotely connect to a computer through the Chrome browser or a Chromebook. With it you can offer assistance to your family and friends by remotely connecting to their computers. If your mom lost a file, you can remotely help her find it. If a friend has some problems setting up a printer for example, you can use Chrome Remote Desktop to remotely fix this problem for your friend.

Until now, there was only one reason why you would stay away from a great product like Chrome Remote Desktop: the fact that it carried the Beta tag. As we all know, Betas have the tendency to be buggy, they may not work properly, and they may end up giving you a massive headache. You no longer need to stay away from Chrome Remote Desktop – the Chrome team recently announced that the product shed the Beta tag.

“One year ago, we launched Chrome Remote Desktop in beta. From adjusting printer settings on your mom’s computer to finding a lost file on your dad’s laptop, Chrome Remote Desktop has made you the family hero by helping you remotely access other computers -- including your own -- via Chrome. Now, we are taking Chrome Remote Desktop out of beta, by adding some additional features,” announced Product Manager Stephen Konig.

Among the new features Stephen Konig mentioned above is the inclusion of a real time audio feed for Windows-powered PCs. This means you can connect to a remote PC and listen to the music stored on it.

To find out more about what Chrome Remote Desktop has to offer, go get it from the Chrome Web Store.
