Next, you will want to go through the graphical steps as detailed in the PhoneArena link below. Be sure to read the captions with each screen-cap to get the skinny on this process. Enjoy!
- A computer running Chrome. It can be a Mac, a Windows machine, or a Chromebook. (Linux support should be on its way)
- An Android device running Android 4.0 or above

- To be logged in with the same Google account on both the Android device and the Chrome browser on the computer you're about to control remotely
- A few minutes of spare time
