Staying connected and accessing the home computer from anywhere became easier when TeamViewer refined its software by updating its Android (News - Alert) Apps for remote control and online meetings supporting Mac, PC and Linux systems.
Android users can now use their smartphones or tablets to access remote computers even while on the go and the addition of VoIP to the TeamViewer enhances the functionality for Online Meetings, according to company officials.
"The new user interface is making remote control even easier, and the addition of VoIP to our online meetings app will save Android users time and money," Holger Felgner, general manager at TeamViewer, said in a press release.
Regarded as one of the world's most popular providers of remote control and online meeting software, TeamViewer's latest versions are expected to improve performance and multitasking capabilities, and allow users to remote access their computers to edit documents and even transfer and share files with one another.
The software is compatible with Android 4.x and the new layout supports both the portrait and landscape displays. Connecting with TeamViewer for remote control can be achieved with just a few clicks and once connected users can manipulate the remote computer and navigate freely.
The addition of VoIP to the Android apps helps participants to communicate instantly from anywhere, send chat messages, use the pointer function to focus attention on a given point and make quality adjustments.
More importantly, all communication during remote access is encrypted with AES 256-bit encoding, ensuring the highest security standard.
The new apps are available for download in the Google (News - Alert) Play Store, Amazon Marketplace and at the TeamViewer Web site. They’re also available for iOS and are free for private users.
Other news based on TeamViewer’s experience in remote access to the workplace reveals that a survey conducted online by Harris Interactive (News - Alert) in January suggests more people want the option to telecommute with 83 percent believing that telecommuting is on the rise.
