TeamViewer integrates enhanced TeamViewer Meeting for free
Compatible stand-alone TeamViewer Meeting app allows end-to-end encrypted video conferences and meetings across mobile devices and desktops
Goppingen, January 13, 2021 – TeamViewer®, a leading global provider of secure remote connectivity solutions, today announces the integration of an enhanced TeamViewer Meeting into the TeamViewer client to start one-click meetings right from the existing TeamViewer application. TeamViewer Meeting, recently rebranded from blizz and now visibly belonging to the TeamViewer product family, is being added for free to all TeamViewer clients, bringing all the benefits of a modern video conference and online meeting solution to TeamViewer users while providing the highest standards of security and encryption TeamViewer is known for.
“Due to the global need of reliable, secure digital communication and online meeting capabilities, we have committed to provide every TeamViewer user with an easy-to-use meeting functionality right in their TeamViewer client,” says Christoph Schneider, Director of Product Management at TeamViewer. “There is an increasing demand for end-to-end encrypted video conferencing and screen sharing solutions following .”
The integrated meeting in the TeamViewer client is fully compatible with the stand-alone TeamViewer Meeting product enabling end-to-end encrypted VoIP meetings when joining in via the TeamViewer Meeting iOS or Android app on mobile devices, which is now possible for all TeamViewer users. Additional features are instant meetings right from the contact list, HD-quality video, 4k multi-monitor-screensharing, an Outlook integration, recordings of meetings and the possibility to lock meetings as well as protect them with passwords to further increase privacy. For subscribers, TeamViewer Meeting also offers phone dial-in numbers which can be enabled or disabled by the host.
“The integration of TeamViewer Meeting into the TeamViewer client is in line with our aim of providing horizontal connectivity solutions to digitalize workplace processes and to enable endless use cases that can be addressed with a shared, secure technology platform for companies of all sizes in all industries around the world,” Christoph Schneider explains the strategic rationale.
The new TeamViewer Meeting is accessible right from the TeamViewer client without further installation for all non-commercial users of TeamViewer as well as paying customers of all subscription plans from now on (Remote Access subscriptions will follow shortly). For non-commercial users, participants will be limited to five while paying customers will be able to host meetings with up to ten participants. Optional packages allow users to extend the size of the meetings to up to 50, 100 or 300 participants. For best compatibility with the stand-alone client, updating to the latest version 15.13 is recommended.
