TeamViewer launches TeamViewer 13 Beta

New version extends reach, improves user experience, performance and productivity and includes additional enterprise functionalities


Tampa, FL, October 30, 2017TeamViewer®, a leading global software provider for IoT, connectivity, monitoring, support and collaboration, today announced the release of TeamViewer 13 Beta, designed to further improve the usability, productivity and performance of the company’s flagship product.

“With TeamViewer 13, we continue to pursue our goal to make our customer’s work as easy as possible – from any place, at any time, regardless of the platform they work from,” said Kornelius Brunner, Chief Innovation Officer at TeamViewer. “TeamViewer 13 provides unrivaled mobile device support with iOS screen sharing capabilities that we are particularly proud of. Our platform support is unparalleled as we put our customers first; carefully listening to and addressing the feedback and requests they share. This gives us insight into productivity potentials that may not be visible at first sight.”

TeamViewer 13 Beta includes the following features and more:

  • Improved connectivity and multi-platform support: Highlights include enhanced iOS 11 screen sharing capabilities with mobile device support connections, a native Linux host, multi-monitor support for macOS, support for the MacBook Pro Touch Bar and more. TeamViewer has also improved its usability with a revamped look and feel of its user interfaces, as well as considerable remote printing improvements including support for HP printers.
  • Meet users’ needs for more productivity: TeamViewer 13 Beta will provide a unified interface which not only brings back the menu bar at the top of the client, but also comes with the new Instant Connect box. Instant Connect will establish connections no matter where users are moving within the client. Additionally, the new Essential Asset Management function provides helpful information about the remote device in the TeamViewer Management Console, so users can analyze issues even before they connect. Furthermore, refurbished file transfer capabilities will include a short-cut to recently accessed files and folders, job queuing and an overhauled file transfer user interface. Finally, a feature that allows users to access recent connections will help them re-establish previous connections faster than before.
  • Higher performance through hardware accelerated scaling: TeamViewer 13 adapts to your hardware and network environment for faster remote connections and reduced reaction times. For example, users with a powerful graphics card will benefit from reduced CPU load, as TeamViewer 13 Beta is able to use the GPU to render the remote desktop image. Additionally, logging into computers and contacts list has been accelerated to be up to five times faster.
  • Enforced session recording: Option to record remote sessions will be available, which will allow organizations to document sessions. This pertains only to the connection of the supporter and will include their activities.

TeamViewer 13 Beta is available immediately for Windows, Mac, Linux, mobile and Chrome OS devices. The described feature set may vary depending on the operating system. Additional information and a software download are available at
