Real-time screen sharing for iPhones & iPads coming to TeamViewer thanks to iOS 11
With iOS 11
, Apple will enable all iPhone and iPad users to natively record their screen and subsequently share the video clips with whoever they please, which is a really neat feature that would please a ton of users.
And TeamViewer, one of the most popular multi-platform screen-sharing services out and about, will be making full use of that feature by enabling iOS users to share the screens of their iDevices live, just like TeamViewer's other apps work. This way, remote support and troubleshooting will be as easy as abc: you simply share the screen of your iDevice with another party in real-time and you can get all the support you need to fix your issue. Don't get that mixed with remote control, though - you won't be able to do that.
The company boasts that it will be the first to bring such a neat functionality to iOS, which will become live as soon as iOS 11 goes available. We expect this to happen in mid-September, most likely right after Apple's upcoming keynote that will likely take place on September 12
. Still, the feature is currently available as a demo for all Apple devices that are running on the iOS 11 beta.
“TeamViewer prides itself on being an industry innovator, creating remote support software and business collaboration tools that meet the growing demands of SMBs and enterprise businesses,” said Andreas König, CEO of TeamViewer. “With the addition of iOS screen sharing capabilities, we break down the barriers to enhance collaboration, by unifying platforms across departments and global offices, expanding opportunities to increase productivity and effectively communicating and collaborating with one another."
TeamViewer's screen-sharing feature will be freely-available to anyone until October 31, 2017.
