You can now try out Remote Desktop on Chromebooks

Chrome’s Remote Desktop tool has been a great way to control your desktop from afar on Android,  iOS and desktop browsers. Now, as developer François Beaufort spotted, you can access the feature on Chrome OS too.

To try it out, you have to be on the Chrome OS development channel (basically signing up to be a beta tester). Once you are, you simply need download and launch the Remote Desktop app and click on the Share button.

Most developer channel features are eventually integrated into the mainstream releases, so you can expect the feature to show up for all Chrome OS in due time.
