Google has officially introduced Linux support for Chrome Remote Desktop and provided step-by-step instructions to setup the beta through its Help Center. Linux already supported remote assistance login via PIN passwords, but now it gains long-awaited full remote desktop capabilities. Chrome Remote Desktop is also available for Windows, OS X, Chrome OS, Android and iOS devices. 

The release was confirmed by Google Community Specialist Natalie Wong on the Google Product Forums. “We are excited to announce official Linux support in Chrome Remote Desktop with step-by-step directions provided in our Help Center article linked here,” Wong wrote. “You can find instructions under Set up Chrome Remote Desktop > Enable remote access > Linux (Beta).”
