Google to release Chromoting remote desktop app for Android

As per a Chromium code review entry, Google Chrome team is working on an Android app, which will bring the functionality of Chrome Remote Desktop app to Android.  First spotted by Fran├žois Beaufort, this app is currently in very early stages, so we will have to wait for some time before reaching Google Play.

According to code review entry, the app currently performs the following actions:

Authenticate using a Google account on the phone
Query and display the host list from the Chromoting directory server
Connect to and communicate with the host service over XMPP/ICE
Establish peer-to-peer channels for communicating with the host service
Notable missing features are: Display the host’s desktop, Handle any kind of input

While, Google Play is still full of apps that offer similar functionality, it is always good to see an offering from Google.
