Chrome Remote Desktop to get built-in screen recording


Chrome Remote Desktop is set to get a new screen recording feature that is expected to rollout to the public very soon. Available on both Mac and PC, it will allow users to shoot how-to videos and other screen casts without having to install dedicated screen recording software.

The new feature was revealed by François Beaufort, who frequently reveals upcoming Chrome features ahead of their release, on Google+. The Chromium team is said to be implementing screen recording “as we speak,” he says, so it shouldn’t be too long before it is made available.

The screen recording option will be integrated into the Chrome Remote Desktop menu bar, so starting a new recording will take just two clicks. If you don’t already have the app installed and you want to get it set up before screen recording is available, you can find it in the Chrome Web Store now.
