Google looking to bring remote desktop application to Android devices

Google hasn’t been shy about experimenting with its applications and services. For every successful application or service, there are often several failures that are discontinued after a couple of years. Google’s pioneering spirit and ambition in creating something new is what makes them such an interesting company.

Recently, Google launched a remote desktop client that allows any computer running the Chrome browser remote access. Since the Chrome browser is multi-platform, this powerful tool allows a remote connection with most computers regardless of operating system.

For those who aren’t familiar with the benefits of having a remote desktop connection, it gives the user the ability to access a computer from anywhere in the world as long it is connected to the Internet.  This can be used to potentially help family members, friends, and even co-workers in fixing potential issues on their computer. You can also use it to access files or information remotely while on the go.

According to GigaOm, Google is currently looking to bring its remote desktop application to Android devices. This project has been in development for nearly a year and is still being beta tested by a select few. This feature would be primarily aimed at larger screen devices like tablets but will also work on mobile phones; the Android remote desktop application is expected to be released soon.
