This article applies to all TeamViewer Pilot users.

Remote camera sharing and real-time video streaming

  • As soon as the person requesting assistance accepts the call from the remote expert, the smartphone/tablet camera image is transmitted in real time to the expert in front of a Windows or Mac computer.


  • Both connection partners can talk to each other over VoIP.
  • For better audio quality, especially in a noisy environment, we recommend using a headset.

3D annotations

  • The one receiving support as well as the expert can create 3D arrows. To distinguish who placed the arrows, they have different colors.
    • Receiving side: By tapping on the mobile screen you can place 3D arrows that stick to real objects.
    • Expert side: By left-clicking on the mouse you can place 3D arrows that stick to real objects. 
  • To make sure you are talking about the same issue; every arrow includes a number.
  • Both connection partners can undo placing their last arrow.
  • Upon confirmation, both connection partners can remove all markers placed within the session.

Share ID easily

The one receiving support can easily share his/her ID with the expert side to receive a TeamViewer Pilot session:

  1. Install the TeamViewer Pilot App on your mobile device:
    1. Google Play
    2. App Store
  2. Start the app on your mobile device
  3. The app will ask you for permission to use your microphone and camera as well as to send you notifications. Please accept the request.
  4. Prepare to share your ID with the one giving support via telephone, SMS (messaging), WhatsApp, email, etc.

Hint: One click session join: New users can be invited to a Pilot session by sending them a session link via SMS. 


  • The person using the Pilot smartphone/tablet app can create video tutorials, without establishing a remote connection.
  • Within the video, it is possible to place 3D arrows that stick to real objects.
  • After recording the video, including a voiceover if desired, it is possible to save or directly share the video with someone else.

Freeze Image

  • Pause the video stream to get a clear still image to highlight and discuss technical details, as well as work hands-free.

  • Clicking on the button again (now named Stop recording) will stop the recording. The explorer opens and the expert can choose a path to save the recording in the .webm format. This format can be opened with most regular web-players e.g. with a VLC player. 
  • If you do not select a path to save the file, a PopUp appears asking the expert whether s/he wants to discard the recorded session file. Clicking on Discard will discard the file, clicking on Cancel will open up the explorer again to choose a path to save the file.
