If you need to access other computers to trouble shot issues with your family members of business colleagues, you might be pleased to learn that Google has rolled out a new update to its Google Hangouts Google+ service that now allows you to control another desktop.
The Google Hangouts remote desktop control enables you to play tech support for friends and family, and is powered by the same technology behind Chrome Remote Desktop.
Google’s Daniel Caiafa explains a little more about the new Google Hangouts Remote Desktop Control in his Google+ post yesterday:
“Hangouts Remote Desktop lets you help others by controlling their computer remotely (with their permission, of course). And because you’re both in a Hangout, you can talk with and see each other during the session.
To get started, just start a Hangout and click View More Apps > Add Apps > Hangouts Remote Desktop. Let us know what you think, and please keep the feedback coming!”
