Reviews From google play store

I have not been able to connect using Chrome Remote Desktop using the Android app or even other computers for a month or more. None of my configurations have changed. It seems that many others are having the same problem. It seems like the problem maybe at least in part, on Google's end. It needs to be fixed! Prior to this, it worked perfectly!

It's almost the perfect app except there's no tutorial to explain how to work all the features and there's one time I successfully selected multiple individual files at once without selecting the whole folder by accident but have never been able to figure it out again and there is nowhere on the internet where anyone has been able to answer that question and yet it gets searched thousands of times per day and the question pops up in every forum.

Unable to have my Chromebook as a computer. There isn't even an option to add in the computer. I have to use chrome website from my phone to access my chromebook. Even then I need to be near my Chromebook to get the support code and it signs out every 30 minutes. Makes it impossible to work from my mobile onto my computer when on the road. Completely defeats the purpose of being able to remotely connect.

App doesnt work any more, it gives me 1 of 2 errors. Either "An unexpected error has occurred, please notify the developer." I did this with no response. Or it says check the internet connection of the device. It is connected. I can remote into my computer from another desktop using the chrome remote web app, but I can only access using a mobile device if I'm on the same network as my computer.

Works great on while on Wifi for accessing my computers. However if I need to access my computer "on the go" which is typical for me. I'm unable to access my computer using 4G LTE without a VPN. I'm not sure if this is an app issue or an issue with Verizon. However the teamviewer app doesn't seem to have any issues so I will be using that until Chrome Remote Desktop works over LTE.

The new version is almost unusable! The worst part is the gaint transparent bar at the top of the app when you're remoted into another computer. Want to minimize or maximize a window? Or get into the File, View, or browser settings? Change to a different tab? FORGET ABOUT IT. This is absolutely maddening. The touch screen and mouse option both seem to only work half as well half the time, I cannot click/move things easily. Tasks that used to take 2 min now take 10. Please improve the new version

Dual Monitor Issues. This had leays been the best remote desktop app. Then over the last few months I haven't been able to use it at all. I have a dual monitor setup for my Mac. It doesn't load all of display 1 and also freezes all the time with display 2. The web based version is perfect and allows me to select one monitor at a time. Perfect.

Has been a very useful app to check on my computer and see what it's up to while I'm away. Simple setup and connection. Recent updates however have thrown things off. Last I tried to use it I was told it was out of date. So I updated the desktop app on my computer and set it back up. I now receive Host Offline when I check the phone app to connect. Apparently they changed something where Chrome must be open for it to function. An annoying change from how it functioned before.

Something seems to be broken with the android app. It was working well just a couple months ago, but now it just keeps saying "An unexpected error occurred. Please report this problem to the developers." It works fine when accessing from the web on a desktop or even using th Chrome app on my phone... The app just won't connect.

A great app to mirror pc screen to the android and remotely use the desktop. Response time is very fast. Everything in the app is just as i needed. But a slight modification would make the app perfect for me and i think for others too. Please add a mouse functionality to use a mouse connected to the android via otg cable like they used in the "VNC viewer" app. VNC viewer has a slow response and that's a deal breaker for me. Thanks, appreciate the good work.

Update - Now it's broken/won't connect to anything on my Android, but the iPhone will connect to all remotes. 0 Stars! Negative 10 stars! Negative 100 stars! This used to be the most amazing product for connecting to devices. The last update broke the windows "app"(ie: they decided to make it "no longer supported" from PC to old OS's.) But it still worked on the android. So the functionality is still there, they just removed you from being able to access it from desktops.

I'm giving this app 5 stars. Mainly cause it worked wonders for me over the years. I recently figured out how to fix the issues many of us were having. I'll be sharing my solution on my FPCVirtual channel on YouTube later today. My app kept losing connection to my PC, as well as showing my PC offline whenever I tried to initialize the entry to my PC via my Samsung Galaxy S8+. Had a feeling it was due to the orginal Chrome web browser app itself being outdated. So I replaced it with a newer one.

So far it seems to work well. I only wish that it had a website or link showing you how to use it's features as well as adding a way to disable audio on only the master device while playing audio over the slave device.

No functionality on 4g, Turn on HOTSPOT!! I was also having issues connecting to my devices on 4g on the go. Works great on wifi. When I enable CRD connection the app grays out my 4G icon (s9 verzion). Found a post to turn on hotspot and then use CRD and it works. Not ideal but better than no functionality if no wifi is available. Happy remoting!

The app does what is says seamlessly and it doesn't consume data. Just turn on the hotspot in your device, connect with your desktop et voila your pc is now in your smart phone. The only thing I don't like about this app is the ui, it's not very well polished and not very visually appealing.

Would be nice to have proper chromebook integration. The layout is nicer than the remote chrome add on as it does not change the screen ration however the imput wether it be with my mouse/trackpad or touchscreen is impossible to use, not precese and complicated!

Completely bricked my desktop environment, had to format hard drive and do a fresh install. Lost all data. Will not trust in future. Would give 0 or negative stars if possible. No way to adequately describe my disappointment and frustration. Edit: Previous review was on Ubuntu 18.04. No issues in Windows, but terrifying to think that forgetting which OS is booted between two that are both "officially" supported could result in having to wipe and reinstall from scratch.

The app kept saying that my access code was invalid despite me typing it in perfectly several times, and even generating new codes and trying them. I even copied and pasted the code,but still no luck. The access code hadnt expired while I was dping any of this. I will change my rating when the app actually works, but till then its a one-star from me...... :( :(

This garbage is broken. Was working fine with multiple monitors and now the cursor only stick to one monitor because it thinks the monitor on my phone screen is a different one. Fix it and ill install again. Until then, bye.

Ok Verizon Galaxy s9 the app will often not connect to my home PC, which causes my mobile data lte to disconnect, noting an "error had occurred. Report to developers" which had been done but no resolution. Sometimes mobile data will not reconnect for up to 30 minutes, preventing calls in or out. Works ok and more stable on wifi

The app is very good. The only thing that bothers me is that there's no way to configure the stream's resolution separately from the remote desktop's resolution. Since my desktop has a very high default resolution I'm forced to lower it manually or else it'll lag.

Always goes offline when the server is definitely still on, and its not a network issue or firewall issue. This software on the PC is buggy. Download teamviewer or splash top, much more reliable.

Was working fine last week, but now my radio antenna keeps crashing on my phone. Can't connect over my 4G network. Tried emailing support and I get an email back stating it can't be delivered and to see details below (it's blank below). Edit 9/26/19: Down to one star. I've sent in a couple of emails to support and still no reply.

The concept of the app is great, but it has a big issue, for example it sometimes can't connect to my pc, and if the main purpose of the app doesn't work then there's really no reason to have it, that's why I vote it four stars.

PLEASE DESIGN THIS APPLICATION FOR AMAZON FIRE TV. I have been trying to install this app on my Amazon Fire TV Stick, but apparently there is some problem with the design of the application that won't support the architect of the Amazon Fire TV Stick's C.P.U. I believe this will be a very helpful application if I evryone could use it on Amazon Fire TV Stick to access the computer remotely.

Worked fine for months. Then one day the app said 'authentication failed, please sign into Chrome again'. I can't figure out how to do that, I'm signed into Chrome on both desktop and mobile.

I just wish it worked more consistently. You can never bank on it working 100% of the time. Sometimes it stops out of nowhere. I email for support but I really don't get any replies back. It's a great app but just needs better support at the very least

Terrible. Email the developer's email address does not work. I have called Google and no one knows the app and no one can help. They all say email the address which doesn't work. I have posted on the Google community which I have not received any answers. I have gone to the web site and followed all the instructions. I removed the app from my phone and removed from my computer ahmd reinstalled both and still not working. Google wants to take over everything but you can't get anyone.

This is THE best remote desktop app i have come accross! Very responsive, even over long distance internet connections (I mean even different countries). Highly recommended especoally as it is a simple chrome browser add-on app on your desktop!

Error while connecting my pc on my mobile the error is "an incompitable protocol version was detected. please make sure that you have the latest version of the software installed on both computers and try again." I done both side app are updated but still this error stuck

App works whenever it feels like it. Fails to connect endlessly even though my computer has a 400 MB/s connection through ethernet and there are no outages on my phone or ISP. When it works it is perfect, but that's 1 out 100 times unless I'm home.

Cant connect over 4G network. After trying several times my Galaxy Note 8 loses 4G connection completely until I reboot the phone. Can only connect when I'm close to my computer. Uninstall. Update: issue has since been fixed. I can now connect to my pc via 4G network.

I had the latest version of the app and of the desktop client, but I saw an error that they are not up to date. The error message doesnt make troubleshooting easy - it should have at least told me which was causing the issues.. fixed now though

Update mac os X Catalina. When open remote desktop android Pie and connect to mac. Screen in mac remote desktop have see menu bar (only invisible this menu bar clock, search and notification) and have see wallpaper, but invisible any app and folder too invisible. How to fix.

Not working as indicated. I keep going through the outlined steps and it keeps bringing me back in a circle. Soooooooo What do you do if there are no computers listed and the person has just installed fresh the latest version of Chrome remote desktop on both the host computer and Android?

Still makes the connection go through their servers, most likely to collect our informations, slowing everything down and using data, even though the host machine is one room away, in the same local network.

Works great, but would love to have a settings option, such as disabling audio to come through the phone.

Love this app. And the web version is a big improvement over the old Desktop App which I already thought was great. It's a pity Microsoft "upgrades" and "improvements" are not as straightforward and stable .

This app used to be very useful and easy to use. Unfortunately they made changes that make it impossible to use unless you are connected to the same Wi-Fi network which competent defeats the usefulness of even having this app...

1st - The branding is hopelessly confusing. There is 1) Chrome Remote Desktop, the extension and 2) Chrome Remote Desktop the app. In searches and everywhere there is pretty much no distinction. The only indication you get is that if you attempt to download the extension an alert comes up saying it is no longer supported so download the app. 2nd - I can find no instructions as to how to solve the "no computers are available" issue when you start the app. Even the instructions in the app seem to be about the extension 3rd - Using the app Feedback link, attempted to send feedback. A "picture puzzle" icon showed up on the shelf, but it's inactive and I can't even seem to dismiss it. Since the app requires Google Play which implies a Chromebook that supports linux, I'm assuming that the CRD extension will still be around for a while so I will try that. Meanwhile, kudos to those who figured out how to use the app.. Maybe you could write a How To and put it on the Web since Google seems not to have gotten around to it yet.

Prior to the update that disabled the old stand-alone CRD option on desktops ans forced you into using the CRD via browser extension, this app worked wonderfully. Now, however, it does not work at all: I merely get a black screen, or maybe 5 seconds of the remote desktop, and then it disconnects. The same system works perfectly fine when using CRD from another desktop/laptop, so it is clearly rhe Android app that is at fault.

Good and bad... Works well from PC to PC, BUT the phone app is currently unuseable on my Android. I get into a losing tug of war between my pulldown Android menu and the pulldown on this app to summon the keyboard or change from pointing to mousing. Very dissapointing.

cant connect as it says PC is offline when it isnt. Also cant connect remotely to gove support via app so this is equally as pointless and as broken as the desktop version.

Why does it not work with mobile keyboard. That's what killed the whole thing for me. It's not as useful as it could have been if I could type with my mobile on the desktop

Loved the app while it worked but it isn't well supported. Last update was over a year ago and it stopped working for me when I upgraded to Mac OS Mojave. Now I am unable to click or interact with my desktop.

Simple, fast and virtually no setup required. I've been using this daily for a while now without any major problems.

Good app. The main problem is that it disconnects each time the phone's screen goes off, which requires to go through a long process just to get another access. Highly annoying!

When I try to connect to my work computer from a house, the screen shows connecting then goes blank and then it goes back to the computers name. It does not connect.

Easy to setup, works as expected. while it lacks the support for multiple monitors, which can be a pain.

Go back to the way the old app worked. This new version is HORRIBLE!! Absolutely unsuable (especially if you are remoting into a dual-screen desktop). Please go back to the way the previous verison worked, which was an actual remote desktop experience - this new verison is some kind of weird play-on-top kind of thing. You had a great app that actually sold me on getting a Chromebook - now remoting into my desktop is useless and I wish I had purchased a Windows laptop.

Used to work really well can't find any pc now. Fix: make sure google accounts match across pc and phone app. works perfectly now!

Mobile app is okay. Web browser is pretty useless since they took away the stand-alone app. Moved to Team Viewer app and much much better for mobile and browser.

I really want this to work but it has some major flaws. firstly unlike splashtop thete is no way to select a mouse button and hold it down. So dragging is difficult. scrolling a long page is almost impossible if your just relying on a two finger gesture. Also lack of ctrl, alt, arrow keys, fkeys etc severely limits its usefulness. please google fix the sethings i really want this app.

The android app can't establish a connection. I can open Chrome remote desktop in the web browser fine on my phone, but there is something with the current build of the app that it can't connect unless it's on wifi.

I have many google accounts. The one I use for Chrome is not showing in this app. It used to work, but now it doesn't. Why are all the other google accounts showing, but not the one I actually need? I try adding it, but of course, it says the account is already on this device. But it doesn't show up in the app.

waste of my time. downloaded and followed instructions on my chromebook and galaxy and when I open the app, theres "no available devices, set up remote desktop" and proceeds to give a link. upon clicking the link it says to open the app to enable permissions. now, I'm in a catch 22 where I need one for the other, and the other for one. utter waste of time, energy, data, and storage space. I expected more from such a renouned established company. No contact or support options either.

App that surpasses all other apps of this kind. I especially like simplicity, low memory usage (both RAM and disk), speed and no restrictions for duration of session. Minus: Doesn't have right mouse click option.

I love the app, but I wish there where an option to not having to see the pc on phone so you only have the mouse and keyboard, for times you use it while you can see your pc screen.

Doesnt work anymore. Not sure what happened but the last few weeks this app is just garbage. Its connected once. Used to connect daily no just gives errors. What a waste.

very easy to use, very fast and reliable , i hope they add file transfer but otherwise it's in overall a very good remote access app.

Used to work well but now does not. Cannot connect to my Windows 10 Lenovo laptop with chrome from a chromebox. Both computer have latest chrome desktop versions installed (now browse extension not no longer supported App). Occasionally before I had to try more than once to get these connected on the same LAN they are now -- but now can never get to work. Unless this is fixed soon, I'll abandon CRD for good.

The app was great now without warning its unable to see my PC and I can't access it. I know the browser version works no problem, as I can remote into my desktop from my laptop no problem via chrome. However due to the way the chrome app works I can't see the remote link icon in the browser. So in short you broke the app, which stops me from seeing my desktop PC and I can no longer access my PC as I could a week ago....thanks

No longer works. Every time I try to connect with my android device I get either an "unexpected error" or "host not responding" error. Used to be a great app.

The grey bar at the top is way to big and the mouse cursor is out by about half of the cursor,meaning I can not click the taps at the top of the screen, becuse the top grey bar is MASSIVE!

if you touch and hold to drag, it doesn't work either, so dragging never works, it's been more than years that this bug exists. scrolling up or down isn't working reliably either because it thinks I'm trying to amplify. it's a crucial feature imperative for a healthy workflow. please fix the scrolling functionally, it almost never works and gets to your nerves, it's infuriating. please add ability to use the app with use one hand instead of two hands.

Used to work flawlessly, now just junk and clutter, will not connect to any of my four computers on different networks... Chrome browser remote functions fine on the computers... Droid app is not functioning

Worked great for months, now on android it rarely does. Gives an error message and says contact the developers. Developers... consider yourself contacted.

Quick and easy setup. Lacks ability for dual screen to dual screen display. If it's available, I don't know how to access it.

removed another star because it has been weeks since this app has been broken... recent update to a new plugin that is web based has essentially broken this solution completely, fix this asap. been using this app since 2014. now all I get is the remote computer is not responding to requests. both are updated.

The fact that it works without any lag is great but you know what is better? This great feature to not see your mouse movement from your only can see the movement on your goddamn phone,and you even cant play games while mirroring which is not a huge deal breaker as the first issue,hope they fix it

Does what its supposed to but bandwith usage is insane. Only usefull if you have unlimited data IMO. Also on screen keyboard is awkward to use.

Why did you kill this app? The web version is vastly inferior. I don't like being forced to use a browser which has known memory issues to connect remotely. The App worked great for everything I needed with relatively minor lag. The web version is practically unusable. I hate the web version, reinstate support for this App.

Doesn't work. It did connect on my initial setup but whatever executable that is supposed to run on a computer start doesn't load. Which is probably why it is not connecting my phone to my pc. I did reset the computer as a new connection and it worked fine but has now gone offline again... Useless app. This used to work back in the day flawlessly

Hands down the best. I tried Microsoft remote desktop and had issues with audio card disconnect issues. Google remote desktop is perfect for my needs. Please dont change a thing.

Some trouble with 2 monitor computers, (sometimes only lets you interact with one), but otherwise, pre good

Can't change keyboard from the number pad on my tablet after it asks for a pin. Does not send key presses to programs like games.

After 2019 update, it just randomly stops working. What a pity, used to work flawlessly.

google taking another great product and throwing it in trash for something confusing and that doesnt work.. lost connection to my home pc from laptop, cant set up remote access on laptop, just get errors. cant access home pc unless from phone now. just trying to open the app is a pain now since its no longer in my apps folder. now you have to remember some stupid internet address.

very useful!! the fact I can control my whole desktop when im far away from home like at work, school, etc. ive been a paid subscriber to splashtop for years that made me pay to unlock this feature. not to mention this app does it better and in higher quality. and now that its free with this app, thanks google ily 💕

Good do you change the view? Can't see much in portrait view (on note 10). I'll edit my review as soon as I know how to rotate the screen

I got this app for my pc works great still works if uve already connected your computer to it however i just got a Chromebook book and wanted to set it up as well but now when you open the app (on pc) it says that the app is no longer supported and forces you to use the web app which is only useful if you want to connect to a previously connested devise. Plz fix this and you'll go back to 5 stars.

Back up photos & videos Save photos from your device, camera, or storage card to your Google Photos library. Before you get started What you need to back up photos & videos Types of RAW files you can back up Canon EOS: 1Ds Mark II, 1D Mark III, 1Ds Mark III, 1D Mark IV, 1Dx, 5D, 5D Mark II, 5D Mark III, 6D, 7D, 7D Mark II, 20D, 30D, 40D, 50D, 60D, 70D, 100D (Kiss X7, Rebel SL1), 350D (Kiss Digital N, Digital Rebel XT), 400D (Kiss Digital X, Digital Rebel XTi), 450D (Kiss X2, Rebel XSi), 50

In general good, but would be great if possible to have the mouse pointer in the possition you tab in the screen, rather than drag it all the time. Also would be good to have more options such as show black screen on the host PC while controlling.

Have to reinstall this everyday for it to work on pc and mobile, complete waste of time, seems to stop working everytime the pc is switched off and back on, SORT IT OUT!

Does everything as expected. Very good, I just don't know if there's a way to have a right click thing for the mouse, if it's there I can't find it.

I have the browser version and the mobile version. For some reason, only the mobile version is working, but not the browser version. It was working just fine a few hours ago. Tried reinstalling the whole thing. and now it say unknown error ...

Great simple remote desktop solution. It just works. And with access through chrome extention it works with everything without creating an app 'ecosystem'.

easier to use than Microsoft remote desktop (especially if you are on an internal network), and free without ads or buying prompt like team viewer.

Work like i wanted. Response time depends on network speed. the only thing its missing is right click function. Please add this google

No dark theme :( Also keeps on saying that my computer is offline when it isn't, making me have to re-setup chrome remote desktop on said computer for it to work again

This app worked flawlessly on IOS, having recently switched to android, most of the time connections don't work.

It works fine, but using an external mouse with this app is simply too frustrating to use. P.S: after using the browser version on my tablet I now see that this app is painfully slow, so I must downgrate my review to 1 star. the browser version has no right click though

Superb remote desktop experience. Easy to use and really responsive. I've played quite a few games using this, and it works really well! The only problem I had was that it didn't inform me I needed to update, so I couldn't connect until I realised it.

Exactly what I needed. Way simpler, lighter and better then TeamViewer

I really just like the simplicity without the unnecessary overhead and annoyances of apps like Teamviewer for simple home PC remote sessions.

I use this to wake up my friend who lives in Washington (I live in California). Very easy to use on PC and mobile.

bring back the app, it was much better, or at least use same ports as the app or TeamViewer. now i get a message i shall configure my network worked perfectly fine before the update and with the app running on the computers...

Now that they removed the app from the pc, the on screen delay from pc to phone is 10seconds compared to the ~20ms from before while using same network

80% of the time i try to connect my tablet or phone with my computer its just a black screen

Note. Speed working months ago. Reinstalled the extension, app, and pin code but nothing will work.
