Popular remote desktop control application TeamViewer has received a significant update including, among other things, Retina support for Mac, a Metro (or Modern) version for Windows 8, and around the clock remote access to Linux computers. The new version, TeamViewer 8, is free to download for personal use, and is also available for business use with several new features targeted at enterprise users. If you’ve been using TeamViewer 8 Beta, you will be prompted to download the official release.
For the home user, TeamViewer now supports remote printing, which means you can access other computers remotely and print documents instantly without having to transfer any files. The new version also offers tighter Microsoft Outlook integration, and lets you plan online TeamViewer meetings on your Outlook calendar. You can also convert your existing appointments to TeamViewer sessions, and send out invitations.
The new version also lets you hear remote sound and see remote video, so if your remote partner is watching a video, listening to music, or even getting error beeps, you’ll be able to see and hear everything. You will also be able to record your sessions, including sound and video.
In addition to these features, TeamViewer 8 also includes several major updates for business users, including a new management console, the ability to hand over sessions to other users, and more. You can read more about the new version here, and download it for free to try it out for yourself.
