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: Chrome OS Does Not show ID and PASSWORD

Hello @rfabriga @eitansg @gregatarena @AndyLeong and @javcove 

As we say...better late than never! 😇

We are happy to announce that you can now share the screen of your devices running ChromeOS. 🙌

If you want to connect via unattended access, please use the TeamViewer Host.
If you want to connect spontaneously, please use the TeamViewer QuickSupport.

You will find the download links here:

Alternatively, you can also download these versions directly on our website here: TeamViewer for Chrome OS

Please also find additional information here: Supported platforms - Chrome OS 

Feel free to share your feedback!

Have a good end of the week. and stay safe! 🍀

Best,

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.

Re: Teamviewer host on chrome os

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.

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)

Re: Chrome OS Does Not show ID and PASSWORD

Hi Jean,

Thanks a bunch for the update! 

I have tested it now and I have found that this works for Chrome devices supporting Android apps only. Is this intended? Can the host app be installed on the native ChromeOS? 

Moreover, I have intstalled the Host app on a Chromebook supporting Android apps and while trying to controll it via a MacbookPro, I could only share the screen. Is this intended as well?

All the best.

Thanks.

Re: Chrome OS Does Not show ID and PASSWORD

Hello @eitansg,

You are welcome! 😊

Yes, as long as the Chromebook is supporting Android apps, you can install the TeamViewer Host app on your device.

Yes, only sharing the screen is possible for Chromebooks. Remote control is, unfortunately, not possible.

If you need any further information, please let me know. 😎

Best regards

Jean

Hi Jean,

Thanks for your further reply. Let us know please if the status-quo changes, namely if ChromeOS devices will be able to be fully controlled in the future.

Best,

Re: Chrome OS Does Not show ID and PASSWORD

Dear Jean,

Please help me! I have installed TeamViewer Host on my brand new Chromebook to reach it from other devices when the Chromebook is unattended. It works fine but not all the way. This since on the Chromebook screeen there is a sign saying "Share your entire screen. Host wants to share the contents of your screen. Choose what you'd like to share.". So still there is a need of a human at the Chromebook end. Very irritating in my case since I want to control the Chromebook unattended. If you or someone else can help me you'd make my day.
