TeamViewer, popular screen sharing, file-sharing, and remote support software has been updated to version 9 with new features and improvements. TeamViewer 9 is now available for Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems.
TeamViewer 9 features
Ability to open multiple connections in different tabs, wake-on-LAN to wake up your Windows, Mac, or Linux computer remotely, two-factor authentication for better security, save customized quick support and quick join modules with your company branding, and copy & paste files from one computer to another are some of the new features introduced with this version of free for personal use remote support software.
It’s now also possible to send files to contacts in your list without having to restore your remote session. The computers and contact list now shows notifications such as new contact request and new service cases when they are available.
TeamViewer 9 is fully compatible with Windows 8.1 and OS X Mavericks operating systems. That said, it runs smoothly on the latest Windows 10 operating system as well.
Even though the user interface has not seen major changes, TeamViewer 9 includes a touch-friendly design for touch devices. When you install and run TeamViewer on a touch device, buttons designed for touch screen appear instead of regular ones.
Before you jump to the download page, please note that even though it’s possible to establish a remote connection from TeamViewer 9 to previous versions (3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8), it’s not possible to establish a remote connection from previous versions to version 9. For instance, you can’t establish a remote connection from TeamViewer 8 to version 9. In order to establish a connection to version 9, you have to update to TeamViewer 9.
The other cool feature is that you can create a desktop shortcut to any remote computer so you can quickly establish a connection without having to manually launch the program.
