Chrome’s Remote Desktop lands on Linux

Chrome users have long been able to remotely connect and control to Windows(s msft) and Mac(s aapl) OS X computers in the browser. Google(s goog) expanded that list to include Linux computers this week, adding Linux beta support in the Chrome Remote Desktop application. The software works for both the Chrome browser and devices that run Google’s Chrome OS, including Chromebooks and Chromeboxes.
We discuss the updated Chrome Remote Desktop software on this week’s podcast and explain how I can now access my new Linux-powered Raspberry Pi with it. Also on this week’s show is news of Acer’s updated Chromebooks, Google Drive Apps in the Chrome App Launcher and how Chromebooks may be getting native video support for Chromecast.
