Android start as a service

Hi,

I've installed this on my son's tablet to keep an eye on his tablet but it doesn't seem to start up automatically. I have to launch the application manually. My son's tablet is a Lenovo Yoga 3 Plus running Android v 6.0.1.

Is there a way to get the Host app to launch automatically at startup in the background? I'm happy to make it "Admin" if necessary. Also, I've installed the Lenovo Addon to enable remote screen viewing.

Hello,

 

You can try the TeamViewer Host for Android, this would run as a service, you can find it under: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.teamviewer.host.market

 

Cheers,

Re: Android start as a service

Hi Ricardo,

This is the version I'm referring to. I've installed the "Host" version, set it up but it fails to startup. I'm using it on 2 x Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Plus  YT-X703F tablets

I've installed the TeamViewer Host but it doesn't function the way I want it to. Is there any way we can automatically get Teamviewer opened at the startup in the background of the device?

Re: Android start as a service

I just ran into this problem on a Motorola phone running 7.1.....it would not start running after a reboot no matter what i tried........after looking at the install package (permisions dats STORAGE) i noticed it got installed to the External SD Card ( I have a 32gig u3 card in "Adopted" mode) as soon as i moved it the Phone memory it works properly.

Re: Android start as a service

I resolved this in 2 ways.

First, I was using the old Samsung Host app which is no longer needed on Samsung devices. I started using Host for Android app which is the recommended app.

Second, if you are using an older version of TeamViewer it will not support the standby mode of the host app. It is not supported in 11, so when the mobile device is in standby it just shows as offline and you can't connect. I can't speak for v12. It is supported in v13 and all of my devices show as standby. When I try to connect it initiates the app on the device and comes online and connects.

Re: Android start as a service - Solved

I was not able to get Host to autostart on a Lenovo Tab 4 upon reboot.  It required a manual start on the device, which eliminates the 'unattended access' benefit of this app.  It worked previously on other Android tablets.

Using the recomendations of community posts, I was still unable to get Host to start as a Service, until yesterday.  After a bunch of testing, I stumbled accross my problem, perhaps it is is your as well.

It turns out that Android 7 introduced new  'Configure Apps' options.  After turning 'On' Host under 'Background App Refresh' it automatically starts on boot up again, thus solving my problem.  To find this setting  go to -->Setting-->Apps-->top right corner tap the little setting gear-->Background App Refresh-->turn on Host app.

Note; this is Android 7 specific.  Good luck, hope this helps...

Re: Android start as a service

Don't worry, I am also using the Lenovo Yoga and it's working pretty fine for me after updating the client to the latest version and make sure you have allowed necessary permissions to the app while installing/configuring.

Find out the updated and latest version above.

Re: Android start as a service

The Solution is quiet simple: 

Android Oreo 8.0/8.1:
Go to Settings -> Apps -> Select "Host" App
Select "Batterie optimization"
Select "Host" App and deactivate optimization.

That's all :)

Hello, good afternoon, I tried to download TeamViewer from Google Play and I didn't have any problem with the download, installation or use of the application. Everything's working fine. Greetings and thanks.

Re: Android start as a service

Yes, this problem is faced by me in the starting after its installation but after further updates, I stop seeing this error and it works fine for me. But after few months when I download Quicken app it starts to show error in a startup that Quicken Error and then after few minutes it started automatically. After the last update, it is working fine now without any further errors.

Re: Android start as a service

Our company has the same issue with Vodafone VFD 620. We have more than 100 o them and a well paid TV licence.

It seems that the service is not firing up on boot. After the first manual launch, the unattender connection will work smoothly, but after reboot, we have same problem again. 

We have removed Host app (and add-on) from the battery optimization program, also we have allowed to use the network without restriction while in background. Nothing helps. (our model asks for Alcatel(H) add-on)

SOS TV,

Re: Android start as a service

Team Viewer is costly but better than other remote login software. Download the latest version which don't have any bug so far.
