Google has released an application to control your desktop from anywhere in the world on a phone or tablet with The Chrome Remote Desktop app.

Users with the app will have to install the desktop extension of the app to their computer. From there, they will have to sync their phone to their computer and have a Google account. Google recommends adding a six-digit PIN in case the account gets hijacked.

Currently, the app is only available for Android users with Windows, Mac or Linux computers on the Google Play store. Google has said the app will be available for iOS users later this year.
