This article applies to all TeamViewer Pilot users.


TeamViewer’s Augmented Reality solution (=TeamViewer Pilot) enables you to fix issues on-site by remotely assisting on-site staff or clients through troubleshooting, problem resolution, product setup, and more. 

With TeamViewer Pilot is it possible to connect to the camera image of a mobile device and get its image transmitted to a computer in real-time whilst being able to talk to each other via VoIP and interacting with 3D annotations to help the user on the mobile device to fix issues in the real world by drawing and highlighting on the screen onto real-world objects.

Getting started

1. Share your TeamViewer Pilot ID with your support technician

  1. Open the TeamViewer Pilot app on your mobile device
  3. By tapping on your ID, you can copy it into the cache of your mobile device. You can then use any messaging app to share your TeamViewer Pilot ID with your friends or partners.

Note: Your partner needs the TeamViewer 14 Preview Version to be able to establish a connection.

3. Use TeamViewer Pilot

      1. As soon as a connection has been established, the camera image of your mobile device is transmitted in real time to your support partner in front of a Windows or Mac computer.
      3. Both connection partners can talk to each other via VoIP. 

        Hint: For better audio quality, especially in a noisy environment, we recommend using a headset.

      4. By tapping on the mobile screen or left clicking on the mouse respectively, both connection partners can place 3D arrows that stick to real objects. To distinguish who placed the arrows, they have different colors.
      6. You can manage your session through a navigation menu on your screen.
