Google in the Spotlight this Week

Thursday April 17, 2014

Google is clearly in the spotlight this week, with some changes and some new introductions. The company yesterday announced the Chrome Remote Desktop app for Android. This useful tool will enable Android devices to remotely access Windows and Mac PCs.

Users need to download, install and configure the software both on their PC as well as on their Android device. This app, which is available free of cost on Google Play, is expected to come to iOS sometime later this year.

The fruity giant has one other ace up its sleeve. It has released a separate version of its stock camera app, which usually ships with all Android smartphones and tablets. This improved app comes with a revised UI and some long-desired features, such as Lens Blur, Photo Spheres, panorama mode and more.

The Google Camera app is now available on the Play Store and supports Android 4.4 KitKat and above.
