Remote Desktop

Another free Chrome extension, Chrome Remote Desktop allows you to connect to and control other computers from the comfort of your own, erm, computer!

Or you can allow other people to connect to and control your PC.

Initial connections can only be completed with consent, but you can set up a library of PCs that you regularly connect to for future access

Google Drive

Sticking with Google for one more tool, or to be specific, a collection of tools, Google Drive.

The free version of Google Drive provides 15GB of storage for images and documents that can be access from any device and shared with others.

The files could be a Google Sheet that you can collaborate with a colleague with,  or a photo album of your family that you want to share with relatives.

If you like being more creative during your collaborations, then Miro is the perfect place for you.

Miro's free tier still allows for an unlimited number of people using the whiteboards, but you are limited to 3 boards - which is ideal to get you started.

Alternatively, if your niece is wanting to play naughts and crosses with you, this is perfect!

Perfect for teams both large and small, with too many functions, add-ons and integrations to mention, Slack is the ideal place to communicate with others.

And as they say, it can replace email so you can get instant response.

Now, Every Time Zone isn't your usual tool, but if you have colleagues all over the globe, and you're trying to schedule a meeting, then this is perfect.

Especially if you're more of a visual person!

Also incredibly handy so you don't wake your relatives on the other side of the planet!
