Think Google has already thought of everything? How bout live chat on Google+ Hangout and having someone take over your computer remotely?

Google’s new Hangout Remote Desktop app allows you to help friends and family run diagnostics, open apps, change settings, or even turn on your Spotify. Google engineer Daniel Caiafa said that one of the benefits of Hangout Remote Desktop is you will be able to see what the other person is doing on your desktop cause that person or you are hosting the a Hangout.

Permission is needed from either party being accessed to be able to use the application of course. To use it, start a Hangout, click View More Apps and then Add Apps, and then select Hangouts Remote Desktop.

This could be a great benefit to all those needing a helping tech hand. How people will use this wonderful new feature, only time will tell.
