THE TeamViewer, one of the world’s most popular providers of remote control and online meeting software, launched TeamViewer 8.
One of the novelties is the TeamViewer Management Console, a cloud-based administration tool that addresses, especially, the needs of corporate environments – with greater emphasis on accountability – stricter security guidelines and the need for central control of your accounts of TeamViewer users including comprehensive user management, browser-based reporting of all sessions and connections with a single click.
Also present are the ability to pass control of a remote session to another person, local printing from a remote computer and deeper integration with Outlook. In addition, good news for those who have a MacBook Pro with Retina display: TeamViewer 8 supports the high resolution displays of notebooks.
The domestic license of the application is free; the commercial, on the other hand, costs R $ 1,080 and includes support and updates within the same version. It is worth mentioning that the TeamViewer Management Console is an exclusive feature of the Professional and Enterprise license – more information on prices and licenses can be found on the company’s website.
The iOS version was also recently updated (to version 8.0.9980) and gained several new features such as support for the 4-inch screen of the iPhone 5 and the iPod touch of the fourth generation, possibility to hear the sound of the controlled computer, incorporation of “ right mouse click ”, zoom and more.
It is available in four versions: two for iPhones / iPods touch (one free, for home use; and one paid [US$100], for professional use) and two for iPads (free and paid [US$140]), which follow the same usage scheme – all weigh between 12-14MB and require iOS 4.3 or higher.
TeamViewer for Meetings 8.0.9893 started to support TeamViewer 8, besides also fixing some bugs. It is free, 26.6MB, universal (compatible with iPads and iPhones / iPods touch) and requires iOS 4.3 or higher.
