TeamViewer insider builds are pre-release versions of the TeamViewer full version for Windows.

The intention is to get early feedback on new features, improvements, and developments before a public release.

This means that the TeamViewer insider builds version might not be tested in full functionality and can contain bugs as it is basically an image of the current development state.

Note: It is therefore not recommended to be used the insider build a productive environment or to be rolled out globally on all devices you have in place.

Hint: For testing and early access to the new features, it is recommended to install the Insider Build on devices you can reach directly so in case of issues you can revert changes quickly.

Install insider builds

TeamViewer contains a setting called Receive insider builds, which you can find at the top of the General page in the TeamViewer options: 

Extras --> Options --> General-->  tick Receive insider builds


If you activate this setting, the TeamViewer client will automatically update to the latest pre-release versions of TeamViewer.

Alternatively, you can always check for the latest version under Help --> Check for new version.

This gives you the opportunity to experience the new features first hand before they are released to the wider public, and give us your feedback about them.

If you activate this setting, your TeamViewer client will search for recent updates daily.
