Parallels Desktop for Chrome OS allows the use of Windows applications on Chromebook and Chromebox hardware, but requires the use of Chrome Enterprise.
The new version incorporates camera and microphone redirection, allowing the use of the Windows versions of Zoom, Webex and GoToMeeting that have features missing from their web app versions,
Another new feature is USB support, allowing the use of flash drives and certain other hardware.
"With Parallels Desktop for Chrome OS, we make it simple for enterprises and education organisations to securely run fully featured Windows applications on powerful new Chrome Enterprise devices, both online and offline," said Corel CEO Christa Quarles. (Corel is Parallels' parent company.)
"We want you to be able to get the job done, no matter where you are and what device you are using. This is why we also made Parallels Remote Application Server so simple that organisations of any size can deploy virtual Windows desktops and full-featured Windows apps to any device in as little as one day.
"This includes older Chromebooks, Macs, PCs, iPads, iPhones, Android tablets and phones, or any HTML5 web browser, so that workers and students, regardless of location, can use devices they already have in order to be productive."
