Remotely Control Samsung Devices from Your PC with TeamViewer QuickSupport
Want to access and control your Samsung Android device from your PC? You can now do so easily and securely using TeamViewer QuickSupport, which was just released in the Google Play Store.
While TeamViewer has been available on Android for some time, previous versions only allowed you to remotely control your PC from your Android device. That is quite a useful feature, but at times when you’re working on your PC, it’s handy to be able to control your phone or tablet from the same screen without having to manage multiple devices and input methods. TeamViewer QuickSupport lets you do just that.
Unfortunately, the app only works on Samsung’ devices running stock TouchWiz ROMs based on Gingerbread or later. This means that it isn’t compatible with devices from other manufacturers, Nexus devices manufactured by Samsung, and Samsung’s own devices running custom ROMs. Hopefully, this limitation will be removed in a future version.
