TeamViewer update brings mobile-to-mobile remote connections

Having the ability to access your computer remotely is one of the things that people who are always on the go need in their lives (although there is a thing called laptops you know?) Tools like TeamViewer, which makes your life easier, is available for anyone who wants to do things like mirror your screen, copy paste using your clipboard, etc. Now the latest update to the app lets you have mobile-to-mobile remote connections, so you’ll be able to have access to your other mobile devices even if they’re not actually with you.

The great thing about this new feature is that it is cross-platform. So for example you have an iPad that you left at home. Using the TeamViewer app, you will be able to view your screen from your Android smartphone, given the parameters under which the app works in, which includes of course installing the app on your remote device beforehand. Things you can do include live screen sharing, exchanging information securely using the clipboard function, and in case you’re worried about security, it uses 256 bit AES session encoding.

TeamViewer is also the first app that allows remote access to Windows 10 mobile devices. Since the feature is cross-platform, you can do all of these on your Android, iOS and Windows phones or tablets. If your colleague is using any of these platforms, then you will be able to have access, given you have asked permission and followed the app’s protocols.

You can update your TeamViewer app from the Google Play page and if you have not downloaded it yet, you can do so for free. If you think you would have to have remote access anytime soon, this is one of the easier ones to use.
