Chrome_Remote_Desktop_Recording_Feature_01

It looks like we will be getting a recording option very soon within the Chrome Remote Desktop for PCs and laptops. François Beaufort took to Google+ to announce that the Chromium team is adding it “as we speak.”

This could be very useful for those that want to create how to videos for friends and family, or even broadcasting to the world through YouTube.

How long till the update actually hits is anyone’s guess, but I can’t imagine it will be too long.
