Google’s Chromium team appears to be developing a Chrome Remote Desktop app for Android. Dubbed Chromoting, the app can connect to any Chrome-enabled computer, allowing the user to view and manipulate a host’s desktop.

According to Fran├žois Beaufort, the well-known informant of Chrome-related news, the development team at Mountain View HQ are working around the clock to develop the app and Beaufort managed to get his hands on a pre-release Alpha copy.

Chromoting is far from finished, at this precise moment in time the app can authenticate a Google account, connect and communicate with the host service and establish a stable peer-to-peer channel. The main objective of the app has not yet been accomplished, as there is still no ability to view the host’s desktop, nor any type of input/output functionality.

There are many Android apps and Chrome extensions on the market which enable users to control their desktops from their smartphones, but there is nothing that has been developed by Google which enables you to do so.
