Called Chrome Remote Desktop app, the iOS version lets you remotely control your computer using your smartphone or tablet, Venturebeat reported.

The app can also give a friend temporary access to your desktop in case you want some key information while being away from home or office.

This is how it works: On your computer, set up remote access using the Chrome Remote Desktop app from Chrome Web Store. On your iOS device, open the app and tap your online computers to connect.

The app authorises the connection by generating a code which you must input into your smartphone or tablet. The app is available on Apple's App Store.
