TeamViewer 8 Available on All Platforms


March 13, 2013

With the recent launch of TeamViewer version 8 for Linux, TeamViewer 8 is available on all platforms.

Version 8 is already available for Windows, Mac and mobile platforms.

TeamViewer provides remote control and online meetings software. The company is simplifying remote administration within companies with the release of Linux version 8.

The new release for Linux already includes a range of features such as enhanced session recording and 24/7 remote access.

Users can leverage TeamViewer 8 for Linux to enjoy 24/7 remote access of computers. Because this version can be used for login, logout and system reboot, it can also be used for server maintenance and home office access.

Thanks to Linux version 8, IT support staff can invite colleagues to an active remote session or pass the session over completely. This means businesses can handle customer queries very quickly and do not need to conduct more remote sessions.

“The addition of TeamViewer 8 for Linux to our product portfolio creates greater business efficiencies for our Linux users,” said Holger Felgner, general manager at TeamViewer. “The improved handling and documentation of remote sessions, and centralized controls make TeamViewer an even more essential, cross-platform tool for efficient client liaison and remote support.”

Other benefits and features offered by this version for Linux include enhanced session recording and the ability to share selected groups with other TeamViewer accounts.

TeamViewer version 8 also allows central control of TeamViewer user accounts.
