What is Teamviewer?


(Lakshmi Prasanna) #1

Teamviewer is a remote desktop control software that allows users to share their screen and remotely control other computers.

In simple words, if you want someone’s help in fixing some problems on your PC or to guide you about something, and the person is far away from your current location, you can simply use the Teamviewer application to make it possible for him to guide you.

This is how it works, you will be given a unique partner ID and a password (which you can change). You have to share these details to your partner. He/she can input the details to the application and connect to your PC and start controlling it as his own computer. This is possible vice versa.

Nevertheless to say that this process requires a stable internet connection and will consume a little higher bandwidth than browsing. So, be aware of it.

Teamviewer supports almost any of the modern operating systems including:

  • Windows
  • macOS
  • Linux
  • Chrome OS
  • iOS
  • Android
  • Windows Universal Platform
  • BlackBerry.
