Samsung DeX

Hey,

Does anyone know if there are any plans to optimise TeamViewer for the Samsung DeX.

I'm surprised it's not already, i think the two are made for each other.

Regards,

Dušan K.

Re: Samsung DeX

Exactly what I am looking for too. I tried Dex with my new s8+ but it doesn't start the TeamViewer App. I would really need TV App with support for Samsung DeX!

Re: Samsung DeX

I am also a bit disappointed , that the Teamviwer Android App is not running when Dex is activated. Why is nobody from Teamviewer here answering, if and when this is supported. 

I see it as a huge opporunity, because all the alternatives are much more clumsy regarding DYNDNS, opening router ports etc.

I think Teamviewer being so slow on that will loose users rapidly. Do they have a prodcut manager and a roadmap? If yes, why dont we hear from them?

Re: Samsung DeX

I also got DeX and would really find TV useful to connect to my PC at home when travelling. Please upgrade it! It should not be that hard to do.

Re: Samsung DeX

Hi all,

Thank you for your queries – it’s good to know that there is interest in having support for TeamViewer running on the Samsung DeX. We can also see the benefit of being able to use TeamViewer on the DeX.

This is something that we hope to investigate going forward. At this stage we can’t make any promises, but it certainly helps us to know who is interested in this support.

To that end, if you would like to see TeamViewer supporting the DeX, please go ahead and give a kudo to this post so we can track interest.

Re: Samsung DeX

At least someone noticed. Thank you for your reply and I really hope Teamviewer jumps on it. Right now we have citrix and amazon. I setup an amazon workspace just to remote in. I would pay money for an app that we can use on the dex!

Re: Samsung DeX

Yes it was great they responded. I am using Chrome Remote Control for now, allows full screen remote control, a little difficult to get a right click because it's mentioned for touch screens but it's doable.

Re: Samsung DeX

As more and more users working on their local machine solely via Teamviewer when traveling, the need for powerful Notebooks and big devices is becoming less and less. Being able to use Teamviewer just with a Smartphone+Screen on a Dex-like setup is the future.

Teamviewer should not miss that opportunity and must publish an App for Dex which supports all Dekstop functions - publish latest in 2017 and not in 2 years....because others will!

Re: Samsung DeX

Hi, in our company we use TeamViewer lot. Our employ using TeamViewer for remote conect to our customers. Now some employees have Samsung S8 and S8+ and they want Dex station for work instead ordenery laptop. They want to work in their device but it is problem because TeamViewer does not work in Dex. Dex have everthing what they want. RDP, MS Office but Teamviewer is problem.

I hope when this problem will be solved.

Thanks

Re: Samsung DeX

As a user coming from Windows Phone 10 who used Team Viewer on Continuum I can say it was a great feature, worked well and I used it a lot.

Would love to see this on DEX.

Re: Samsung DeX

Its the future! Would love to be able to run teamviewer on my Dex. I paid a lot for my teamviewer license, but I paid it with a smile because teamviewer is the market leader. I expect teamviewer to step up in this regard.
I think the majority of people who need to run teamviewer on their dex, are teamviewer license holders. Dex and Samsung S8 is expensive tech. My Dex is just a toy until I can run teamviewer on it. I sincerely hope that the developers are already developing.

Re: Samsung DeX

Hi Jeremy,

more than 2.5 months after your acknowledged the interest here, can you already let us know if we can expect something at all from TeamViewer?

Are there any plans? Something?

Thanks

Someone posted on the Samsungs Developer Board "January 2018". Can you confirm?

Re: Samsung DeX

Totally agree.

 

90% of the reason behind purchasing the DEX station was so I could utilize TeamViewer from home, and needless to say, very disappointed as that was the first app I tried, and nothing.

Re: Samsung DeX

Hello,

There's a way to use Teamviewer on dex ! Go to google play, search for Dex Hub and install it. Launch it, make your settings and give neededs access. After that you should be able to lauch Teamviewer in full screen. To get a better control enable touch interaction.

Have fun

WOW, the Dex hub works! So awesome I can have TeamViewer on my Dex now in fullscreen. Plex plays fullscreen. Thank you so much for the suggestion. It just took Dex to the next level for me.

Re: Samsung DeX

Ok, install the dex hub, and open the dex hub app in dex. Click on the True Window button on the left and follow the prompts. This will allow tablet view of all apps allowing full screen. Hope that helps

Don't forget that Huawei mate 10 phones now have built-in desktop mode. TV works well with it but no screen scaling so that is causing me an issue.

Re: Samsung DeX

Dex support by TeamViewer is very important.  Showing fullscreen without the use of Dex Max and full mouse/keyboard support essential.  Dex is a great tool for the mobil user and for those that do their work at work and at home.

Dex is useful for support staff and end-users alike.

Thanks.

Re: Samsung DeX

Hi guys, the topic has been opened mid 2017, today is almost the end of 2018, few Dex devices released, but no signs of TV working on Dex, is that normal..? So many less known applications are supporting Dex, but not Teamviewer. It's getting a bit frustrating.

Re: Samsung DeX

Is the right click and mouse wheel working for you in TeamViewer in Dex mode? For me, the right click makes a left click and the wheel does nothing. Curiously, when I switch to mirror mode, the right click and the wheel works again and when I go back to office mode, it does not work anymore.
I use the dock with a Galaxy Note 8. If it works for you, which phone do you use?
Thanks in advance

Re: Samsung DeX

No. 

My mouse reacts the same as you have described.  I am currently just managing with the given situation. I was happy just to get it working  since I have owned it well over a year, and its pretty much just been a very expensive charger.  Hopefully they will contiune to develop and fix the inconsistencies since there is a high demand for this application / device.

Re: Samsung DeX

I have the exact same experience and in order to right click I have to hold down the mouse button for about a second, but that clearly isn't the same as a true right click.

Re: Samsung DeX

Thank you for your feedbacks.
I just heard about the future application "Linux on Dex" currently in private beta. It seems to be a sort of Linux virtual PC for Dex mode. I hope that will solve the problem.

The mouse do not work on remote desktop - neither L/R click or scroll. How can I activate mous functionality on TV ?

Re: Samsung DeX

I'll be getting my Dex Station in a few days to use ot with the S9+.

Guess I'll have to use Microsoft Remote Desktop Android app on DeX to connect to my office PC (Win 10) since it does support right mouse click.

As a workaround, over RDP, from my office PC I should be able to use TeamViewer Windows software if I want to connect somewhere else using TeamViewer.

I would pay for the DeX add-on for Team Viewer if it would add mouse click support (left, right AND middle click).

Re: Samsung DeX

I Think this should be work standalone:

Got to Samsung Dex Settings and click "about Samsung DeX". 

Click the Samsung DeX Logo 5 Times, now you should be in developer mode.

Now Activate the Developer Mode on your Phone (About Phone --> Softwareinformation ---> Click on the Buildinformation for Eight times).

Now Go To the Developer Settings (At the Bottom of Settings) and Scroll to the Bottom.  Now Enable "Force activities to be re-sizeable". 

At least clear your recent Apps and restart your Phone.
