If you have ever wanted to use remote access on a PC or laptop, Teamviewer would be a very common name. If you have wanted support as an Android user, TeamViewer QuickSupport would be very handy as a tool. It is very easy to use but as a flaw, it does not provide full remote control features for all manufacturers.
As on date, the Teamviewer QuickSupport tool works for Lenovo, Asus & caterpillar devices. So, while you can install it on your Android phone or your tablet (as long as it is running 2.3 or higher). You would have the same standard TeamViewer that is present on a desktop and that would be initiated with a remote connection and a nine digit code. With this, you can see different parameters of the computer, the CPU usage and storage, the RAM that is being used, the number of applications that have been installed on the computer, different wireless connectivity settings, simple chat windows and so on. For any change that you would make to a condition, you would have to verify it with the Android user.
Two of the most prominent features of using TeamViewer via your Android phone is that you can take real time screenshots of your PC and you can store confidential information on the clipboard of your computer.
Unless the device is rooted, you cannot completely remote control access on the PC. It used to be very popular with Samsung devices but now, TeamViewer has expanded the capability. Using TeamViewer for remote control, you can control computers remotely almost as it was right in front of you. You would be able to access the desktop, documents and all other installed apps.
From a usage point of view, you would be able to access computers behind the firewalls and proxy servers. With Windows 8 multi – touch support, you can control gestures and use the intuitive touch features. A standout feature when you use it with the Android is the ability to transfer files in either direction. So, the next time you have to transfer data when you are on the go – you know how to!
The system logs are a huge advantage too, you have the ability to view the system information and be able to diagnose issues in parallel. There is a lot of emphasis on the security features on TeamViewer QuickSupport and each remote session is embedded with the highest security. The application is now present on GooglePlay and there are new add-ons for remote access on Panasonic, BenQ, Gigaset, Gemini devices and many more.
The makers have taken the step to make the application more accessible to different phone users. It would make the biggest difference in the presence of the application and how easy it would now be to have remote access of your PC on your phone.
N.B – You can also shut down your computer remotely from a mobile phone.
