Surely many of you already know this popular application. What you may not all know is that it is available for Android and you can control the PC from your phone, or conversely, the phone from the computer. It supports 127 mobile device manufacturers, operating systems, and IoT devices on the market today.
Remote control of a PC from the mobile
The good thing about TeamViewer is that you can connect to control a computer remotely… The good thing about TeamViewer for Android? That you can control a PC from your mobile anywhere. It’s very simple, just download the app from the Play Store. When we open it we will have a screen where we can enter an ID. We introduce the ID of the PC to which we want to connect to remotely control.
Once entered we will do the same with the password. We will find all this on the device of the user to which we want to connect, who will also have to have TeamViewer installed.
Navigation on the computer is very simple and intuitive. It is possible that the screen of our computer can be much longer than that of our mobile, do not worry, simply turn the mobile or slide with your finger as if it were an image we can move around the screen, making it quite simple.
Of course we can use the digital keyboard of our mobile to write search and use the computer as we would in it. Also in the upper part we will have the key options that we do not have in the virtual keyboard such as Shift, Ctrl, Alt and the key Super. Making any type of key combination possible, although it is clear that it will not be as comfortable as a keyboard.
What other functions do we have besides moving around the desktop? Well all these:
- Permanent access for unattended devices
- Wake-on-LAN and remote rebooting
- Black screen to keep your privacy during remote access
- Safe, flexible and allows file sharing
- Remote printing for Windows and MacOS
Control a mobile from the PC with Teamviewer
It can also be a mobile that is controlled from a PC. Of course, for this we will have to install TeamViewer QuickSupport. The operation is the same, an ID and a password will appear on our phone and we will enter it on our PC.
It will give us facilities with navigation buttons even if we do not have them activated on our phone. The operation is as if you will use the phone with the touch, all the same, but using a mouse. It is very intuitive, even more than using it from an Android phone.
From the list of things that we can do on the remote phone, we can highlight:
- Share screen
- Transfer files safely
- Mobile to mobile connections
- Viewing system diagnostics in the TeamViewer desktop app
- Chat via text, take screenshots or control processes on the device you connect to
