TeamViewer Introduces Web Based Remote Access For Added Connectivity
TeamViewer is popular across the work spheres for enabling remote access to computers and smartphones

TeamViewer is one of the many remote control software applications that have been at the helm of the digital transformation of workspace. Already a hit with its Management Console available to the subscribers via the web version, users will now also be able to establish a browser based remote control connection to its Management Console without having to install a TeamViewer client. The remote connectivity feature is compatible with major operating systems such as Windows, MacOS, AND Linux devices, as well as, web browsers including Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Edge. It'll be available to all the subscribers with remote access, premium, corporate or tensor licenses. 

The connection can be easily established through the contact list of the console. If a contact has been specified, the Administrative Console introduces the user to the new web client. Like all Team Viewer connections, this end-to-end encrypted connection will also support all the functionalities including updating or restarting the computer, activating the security screen and controlling the accessed device. However, the target computer needs to have a full copy of TeamViewer, TeamViewer Host, or TeamViewer QuickSupport.

Interestingly, TeamViewer has stepped forward with its feature to support even those devices on which the software installation is blocked by default. Similarly, the feature comes in handy in case the usually used device with already installed application is not available. The software has describes this move as an attempt to offer “low price” and “high-value solutions”.  

"With the web client, we are implementing another building block for unlimited connectivity. It is important to us to enable maximum flexibility and independence from devices or operating systems - regardless of location and in any situation," explains Christoph Schneider, Director Product Management at TeamViewer.
