I have the new Teamviewer 13 on both Windows 10 (the remote host) and Linux Ubuntu 16.04 (the client).
The new Teamviewer's toolbar and features are restricted indeed. The clipboard doesn't copy between machines; I cannot find how to transfer files; there is no option to optimise for speed (the host has a slow internet connection); there is no remote update. EDIT: Also, there is no option to resize the remote computer to its original size on the client machine.
Is there a way to access the old features, or have they been deleted from Teamviewer 13?
File Box, chat and many other options are not available on the Linux client.
I can't transfer files to my Linux PC during a remote session from Windows. 13 R2 did not even fix it.
I am switching back to 12 unfortunately and having to deal with all "other party have a newer version" warning...
Thank you for your posts
Our developers are working hard to bring the native version with the features you need.
At this moment the features you mentioned are not available.
They also want to listen what features are most important to you.
May you please have a look at the following article and participate in the survey included.
A new update with more features will be released soon.
If you have any other questions please don’t hesitate to ask.
Christian, how can you label a question answered when your answer is that TeamViewer does not do that but you are working on it. If you are working on it, it should be labeled not answered. if you are not working on it, then answer that you are not.
I don't find using this forum to find solutions useful when it has answers like this.
Thanks for your post.
@ChristianCay is only a support representative. Another user in this thread marked the answer as a solution so that any other user with the same question could easily find the answer to the existing question.
The answer or "solution" is that the feature is not yet available but is being worked on by our development team. When an update is available this thread will be updated accordingly.
Feel free to participate in the survey provided below to provide feedback to our development team on the features that will benefit you using TeamViewer.
Johnathon, I am one of those hunting. I thought that it was a problem that had been solved. Which is what it says. A problem that still exists but someone plans to solve some day is not solved. It sure misled me.
Thanks for the update.
As previously stated, any new features or updates will be provided in this thread so that all users can benefit.
Thanks to everyone for their support and patience!
Thank you. That is appropriate.
I am still using 12. A rather conservative guy. I am trying to assess whether the time is right yet. Advice is appreciated.

Based on my experience, I would avoid 13 at this stage. Too many important features are missing. But, you have to take to care to prevent all of your remote hosts from automatically upgrading to version 13. You can't get into them if you're on 12 and your remote is on 13.
When it comes out of Beta, perhaps then it will be ready for prime-time.
I had the foresight to set my client computers such that they do not update unless I tell them to specifically do this.
I was not aware 13 is still a Beta. That answers my question for sure. I will not touch it until some time after beta is over.
The problem is the main TeamViewer website offers version 13 in download, so customer install version 13, and no way to exchange files.
The only partial solution I have is to keep version 12 installed, and to use the chrome plugin to connect to version 13, but without file transfer.
