New in version 9.0 Build 24147 (December 3rd, 2013)

  • New features:
  • TeamViewer QuickSupport for instant support:
  • Instant support for Linux customers is now even simpler because TeamViewer QuickSupport is now also available for Linux. Your customers simply start the brief customer module, without needing installation or admin rights.
  • Open multiple connections in different tabs:
  • Open multiple remote sessions in tabs, just like in your browser. For an optimal overview, you can also open all the monitors belonging to a remote computer in separate tabs. You won't miss a thing because opened tabs will always flash when new activity occurs on the remote computer, e.g. a new chat message from a customer.
  • Wake-on-LAN with TeamViewer:
  • Do you want to ensure 24/7 access to your computer without having to leave it running all the time? With the new Wake-on-LAN feature, you can now wake up your computer remotely whenever you need access. The wake feature simply works via another computer using TeamViewer within the local network or via a router.
  • Protect your TeamViewer account with two factor authentication:
  • Protect your TeamViewer account against unauthorized access with two factor authentication, just in case your password happens to land in the wrong hands. With an established authentication app (e.g. Google Authenticator), you can simply generate a security code with your smartphone. Both the code and the password are requested during login. With this two factor authentication, TeamViewer helps you meet HIPAA and PCI DSS requirements, among others.
  • Process customer cases in the service queue together with your team:
  • Now organize instant customer support in your team more easily. All service cases are collected in your service queue and identified based on a session code. You can now manually create a new session code and pass it on to your customer in the form of a link. Instead of sharing the TeamViewer ID and password, like you used to, the customer can now join the session directly with just a click. Alternatively, a code is created automatically, as soon as the customer launches your customized TeamViewer QuickSupport. In this way, new customer cases are added to your service queue.
  • Teamwork: Process incoming service cases together.
  • Assign: Assign service cases to yourself or colleagues.
  • Establish connection via session code: Connect via a session code, without being bound to a specific device and without sharing a TeamViewer ID and password.
  • Detailed information: View the status and details of all cases at a glance, e.g. customer name, wait period, description of problem, assignee, and more.
  • Reports: Use this information to create even more detailed connection and billing reports.
  • Notifications: Receive immediate notifications when new cases are submitted.
  • TeamViewer API: Integrate this feature directly into your own application as well.
  • TeamViewer API for integration into your applications:
  • Integrate TeamViewer with your systems, such as helpdesk, ticket, or CRM. The new TeamViewer API offers the option of seamlessly integrating TeamViewer functionalities into your own work environment
  • Automatic synchronization of TeamViewer accounts for the users you manage, e.g. with Active Directory.
  • Automatically import reports into your own software, e.g. connection logs or bills.
  • Import user lists from your company environment into the Management Console.
  • Use service queue functions directly in your own software, e. g. session code creation.
  • Additional information on TeamViewer API can be found here.
  • Notifications - Everything at a glance:
  • TeamViewer now informs you directly in your Computers & Contacts list when new notifications are available. Stay informed, regardless of where you happen to be.
  • Notifications will show you:
  • New service cases
  • Service cases assigned to you
  • New contact requests for your Computers & Contacts list
  • Alerts about TeamViewer integrated monitoring checks
  • Current ITbrain alerts
  • Optimized video:
  • Video transfer is now even faster. Show your participant a video during a presentation or view YouTube videos on remote computers in real-time.
  • Redesign for even easier use
  • New TeamViewer user interface and Computers & Contacts design. Experience a new touch-friendly design. Important buttons convert automatically when you use TeamViewer on a touch device.
  • Licenses, Updates and Backward Compatibility:
  • TeamViewer 9 users can still establish remote control connections with TeamViewer 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8.
  • For technical and licensing reasons, a remote control connection in the other direction, i.e., from TeamViewer 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 to TeamViewer 9, is not possible. Meetings with version 9 are also accessible for participants with version 7, 8, however, vice versa it is not possible due to the mentioned reasons.

  • Comment on sessions for billing documentation
  • Enter your comments immediately after closing the remote control session. In your TeamViewer Management Console you will find all the information clearly documented, e.g. for billing. Platform-comprehensive for Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, or Android.
  • Share selected groups with other TeamViewer accounts
  • Do you provide service to your clients together with colleagues? Now it is easy to share individual groups on your computers & contacts list with the team, so that your colleagues have quick access on shared client computers. Read or write permissions can be set individually.
  • Session recording, including sound and video for perfect documentation
  • Record both, online meetings and remote control sessions, including sound (only sound from Windows computers), VoIP, and videos. Ideal for proofs and training in the near and distant future.
  • Remote account logout
  • View current logins to your TeamViewer account in the TeamViewer Management Console. Close them later if you happen to have forgotten to log out of your account when having worked on another device.
  • Automatically log out of operating systems (Windows, Mac) after remote access
  • The remote computer is automatically locked instantly if the connection is closed or interrupted. This ensures that no one gains unintended access to the Mac or Windows computer you were just connected to.
  • The TeamViewer 8 full version will have a daemon (service)
  • The daemon will be installed automatically when installing the Linux version. With the daemon for Linux it is now possible to connect to a Linux computer on the login screen (when no user is signed in).
