The TeamViewer app for Windows 10 Mobile has been updated with some new features. Chief among them is the addition of remote access in Microsoft's mobile platform. On top of this, TeamViewer now supports mobile-to-mobile remote connections. The key news about this release is these connections work fully across platforms.
TeamView is a cross-platform remote control desktop software. The service allows users to share desktops, online meetings, web conferencing and file transfer between computers. With this new update, mobile-to-mobile connections are also arriving on Android and iOS. This fulfills the ability to have remote and screen sharing across platforms.
In a blog post to announce the update, the company says it's the first app to offer remote access to Windows 10 Mobile from any computer. Users can make a connection through the app and use Windows 10 remotely on their mobile device.
While the app is free, it is a freemium service with a premium membership option. To take advantage of these new features, users must be premium members. The company explains that it has also made some important security and performance enhancements:
“System administrators now have the chance to easily identify all incoming connections and review them in their Management Console. Additionally, TeamViewer 12 allows for the easy roll-out of control settings to any number of devices, and gives IT staff the means to effortlessly check whether critical security policies are in place on a particular device.”
TeamViewer for Intune
In August, Microsoft confirmed TeamViewer support in Intune. The app connects to Microsoft's cloud-based mobile device management service through the Admin console.
“We've introduced a TeamViewer Connector within the admin console that allows you to register your company's TeamViewer account with Intune,” Microsoft said. “Once you've done this, your end users can use the Intune Center on their PCs to request remote assistance, and they'll receive help from your help desk through a TeamViewer connection.”
