The new Recent Connections feature allows you to connect to the recently connected remote devices very quickly. In the Recent Connections group you have access to the ten contacts of the Computer & Contacts list you last established a connection with. You can initiate remote control, file transfer, or online meeting connections easily without needing to search for the contacts again.


To be able to use this feature, you must meet the following requirements:

  • You are using TeamViewer 13 or higher.
  • You have connected to a remote device at least once.


Chat-Contacts are not supported in the Recent Connections group.

The Recent Connections group is always at the top of the Computers & Contacts list.

It is not possible to do the following:

  • rename the group
  • share the group
  • delete the group or contacts
  • deactivate the group

Contacts disappear from the group if you delete the remote device or the contact itself is deleted from the Computer & Contact list.

This feature is available for all license types.
