Chromebooks make great laptops for your less tech-savvy family members and friends. Other than logging in with your Google account, there’s practically no configuration involved. However, there still may be a scenario where your grandma or cousin or nephew has a question about something they see on their Chromebook. In these cases, a little remote desktop assistance can go a long way.
For typical Windows, macOS, or Linux computers, we’d generally recommend Windows Remote Desktop, a VNC client or something like Join.me. But with a Chromebook, you are limited to what you can install through the Chrome Web Store. This is where the Chrome Remote Desktop app comes in.
