For those of you who play tech support for friends and family, there's now a Hangouts app to make things easier -- powered by the same technology behind Chrome Remote Desktop.
Hangouts Remote Desktop lets you help others by controlling their computer remotely (with their permission, of course). And because you're both in a Hangout, you can talk with and see each other during the session.
The news was broken by Daniel Caiafa, who has confirmed that the tool is using the same technology as the Chrome Remote Desktop tool.
To get started, just start a Hangout and click View More Apps > Add Apps > Hangouts Remote Desktop.
