Nice to see this feature hit Google Hangouts.
 
Hangouts Remote Desktop: tech support with a personal touch

For those of you who play tech support for friends and family, there’s now a Hangouts app to make things easier -- powered by the same technology behind Chrome Remote Desktop. 

Hangouts Remote Desktop lets you help others by controlling their computer remotely (with their permission, of course). And because you’re both in a Hangout, you can talk with and see each other during the session.

To get started, just start a Hangout and click View More Apps > Add Apps > Hangouts Remote Desktop. 

Let us know what you think, and please keep the feedback coming!

Rather sad to see 386SX support being dropped in the linux kernel; my very first computer was a 25mhz 386SX machine with 4MB of memory.

I remember doing this when the MP3 format first gained popularity.  Playing music in reverse is fun too.

Yeah, I always preferred much more mild playback changes (like 10% slower) and then leaving the pitch alone.  You still get to hear "more" of the sound, but it's not so stretched out that you have to correct the pitch.
