Google has just released its own virtual network computing app that will let anyone with an Android phone remotely access a PC through any internet connection.

The Chrome Remote Desktop works with a Chrome extension and devices running on Android 4.0 or higher. The app works by first creating a connection using the Chrome extension to establish PIN codes and begin sharing desktop screens.

Users will then need to install the app on their Android phones. Upon launching the app, users simply tap on the name of the remote computer they’ve previously set up in Chrome, and within seconds the desktop should appear on their screens.

The app will be able to access computers running on Windows XP and above as well as Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard and up. Google has also promised that an iOS version should arrive in the future.
