DNP Google Hangouts updated with remote desktop control, turns you into tech support in the process

Google recently updated its Hangout chat client with the same remote desktop control tech integrated into Chrome. This slick new feature gives you the option to take control of someone’s computer (with their permission, of course) during a video call. If you often find yourself recruited to help friends and family members with technical issues, you’ll definitely dig this. To begin a remote session, start a Hangout and click View More Apps > Add Apps > Hangouts Remote Desktop. Now that you’ve got this light work out of the way, it’s time to move on to some heavy lifting — like helping grandma set up that Netflix account she’s been asking about.
