TeamViewer is preparing for macOS Catalina

Hi all,

Apple started to roll out public betas* for macOS Catalina (10.15) and iOS 13, and iPadOS. Since yesterday mac users can test the new OS and explore the new features.

The public beta for the new macOS is of course fascinating news for a lot of us, and we are happy to let you know, that our developers are already working on making TeamViewer fully compatible with the new OS and we will let you know once we finished our coding and testing.

Of course, we are also updating our Knowledge Base article Which operating systems are supported? accordingly.

As we are not yet fully compatible, we can not guarantee a hassle-free TeamViewer experience on Catalina, and we recommend to not update to the new OS on your production environment if you need to work with TeamViewer.

*Background: A company shares a beta version with its user base to find and resolve issues and bugs more quickly due to the large test-group.

Thanks a lot and best,

Esther

macOS Catalina is live!

Hi all,

Autumn is always an exciting time in the software industry, and we all are waiting for new updates and versions for our favorite systems.

After Apple published their Golden Master of macOS Catalina on Friday, they went live with macOS Catalina officially yesterday!

As promised, we have been working hard through the summer on making TeamViewer fully compatible with the new macOS:

We are excited to announce that the upcoming TeamViewer 14.7 release will be ready for the latest macOS Catalina.

Currently, TeamViewer 14.7 is live as an Insider Build for open testings for all our participants of the Insider Program and all of you being excited to test our pre-releases :-)

Note: We do not recommend using an Insider Build on your productive system!

Until TeamViewer 14.7 will go live officially (planned for October 22nd, 2019), you can give your TeamViewer (<= 14.6) in Catalina's new security settings the necessary permissions to continue working with TeamViewer as usual. Please see our Knowledge Base article for more information on how to make the settings for Screen Recording, Accessibility and Full File Access.

Please note that you can not change the security settings remotely as the security dialog can not be transmitted via remote software before adjusting the setting! It is required to change those settings locally one time.

Thanks and have a great day,
Esther

Re: TeamViewer is preparing for macOS Catalina

It appears that the latest version of Teamviewer for the Mac 14.5.1691 (I did not find a beta) does not function at the macOS Catalina login page. Even though both TeamViewer TeamViewer_Desktop are enabled in System Preferences-Privacy-Accessibility. Is it necessary to use another company's remote desktop utility just to get through Mac login? Any indication of when this feature may be added?

Re: TeamViewer is preparing for macOS Catalina

The final version of Catalina is about to be released any moment. Is Teamviewer compatible with Catalina now?

Re: TeamViewer is preparing for macOS Catalina

Interesting that your statement does not indicate any kind of commitment to updating TeamViewer to be compatible with MacOS Catalina. It reminds me of an old Chinese quote: "Talk doesn't cook rice".

Re: TeamViewer is preparing for macOS Catalina

Teamviewer is broken on catalina.  Furthermore, my personal account, which I use to help my mother, has been "flagged for commercial use".  A notice pops up that says I'll be disconnected after 5 minutes, but I get only 30 seconds.  Suboptimal - Time to find an alternative.

Re: macOS Catalina is live!

I downloaded the insider build , gave all permissions including Screen recording, bbut I am still not able to control the screen on the Mac OS Catalina.  I can see everything though.
