A message spotted on Chromium.org, home to the open source browser project Google Chrome is based on, states that a “Chromoting” application is in development for iOS devices. This would allow users to control their computers from their iPhone or iPad, for example. An Android version of this same technology has been in development since last year, it’s been previously reported.
Since last year Google has been building a remote desktop management application for Android called “Chromoting.” The app isn’t being publicly distributed right now, development is well underway. It appears that Google has plans of launching the app on IOS as well, this has been discovered recently through a post on the Chromium issue tracker. The Chromoting app will allow users to do what pretty much other remote desktop apps let users do, control their computers from a mobile device, like a tablet or a smartphone.
