Teamviewer host on chrome os

We have a custom msi file to deploy our custom host on our windows computers. However we also have a lot of chrome books that we want to deploy to. Is it possible to also have the custom host installed on the chrome books and how is this done?

Re: Teamviewer host on chrome os

Hi @rfabriga,

Currently we don't have a TeamViewer Host app availalble for Chrome OS. Due to the way Chrome works, it's only possible to make outgoing connections from Chrome using TeamViewer.

So right now we have a Chrome app for remote control, which you can use to connect from the Chromebook to another computer. You can find this app via our website:

https://www.teamviewer.com/download/chrome-os/

Tip: because this app is a regular Chrome app, you can also install it into the Chrome browser on Windows or macOS, and use it to make outgoing connections from those platforms too! This provides a quick and simple way to use TeamViewer on a computer where you might not be able to install the regular TeamViewer program for some reason.

Re: Teamviewer host on chrome os

I think what you are saying is that currently Teamviewer does not support remote access or control of a Chromebook. (only outgoing connections are supported).

So the best option is alternative such as CRD.

Hi! Any news for this functionality? We would love to use Teamviewer to administer Chromebooks!

How Can I Add my license to the Chrome OS Teamviewer App? Currently it closes the session because it says it´s on free use not commercial.

Re: Teamviewer host on chrome os

I have downloaded the app on my chromebook but whenever i tried connecting to another chromebook/android/other computers it just says that the connection could not be established with this version of teamviewer but in chrome web store this is the latest version. (Version 13.0.281)
