Remote Phone Control via TeamViewer on Any OS

TeamViewer has a wide array of functions. On its official website, the developer claims that this software is the only tool on the market that can remotely support not only computers, but also mobile devices based on iOS and Android.

In this article, we are going to analyze how to control remote devices via TeamViewer, what phones it supports, and what else it can do.

How does remote control work?

In order to remotely control an Android or iOS device, it is necessary that a classic TeamViewer (for example, TeamViewer 15) be installed on the PC or phone from which the control will be carried out. And the device you want to connect to must have a version of TeamViewer QuickSupport installed.

  • Download the TeamViewer QuickSupport application to the smartphone you want to control.
  • Open the program. The mobile device ID will be displayed on the home screen.
  • Enter this ID in a previously launched program on a PC or smartphone from which the connection will be made.
  • Allow the controlled device to accept the connection.

The interface of the connected smartphone will now be displayed on the screen of your main device.

Full remote control is possible after downloading an additional application to a remote device.

To do this, on your smartphone, you need to go to the additional menu of the program and install the proposed add-on. However, it may not be available for this device model. In this case, you will be able only to move the cursor, without the ability to open the necessary programs and folders on the smartphone.

Which phones can be controlled

Full remote control is possible on phones from popular manufacturers: Samsung, Sony, Lenovo, Asus, LG and some others.

The easiest way to find out if your smartphone supports TeamViewer and TeamViewer QuickSupport is to install this software. If there are frequent crashes of the application or notifications of malfunctions appear, then you will have to look for other programs for remote access.
