Shadow In Browser is our new Shadow PC solution accessible directly from your Browser and Chrome optimizer.
We have recently developed new features, such as copy and paste between your Local and the Shadow In Browser, the Microphone option, and certainly others will follow.

These options will only work if you have the correct permissions.
