Version backwards compatibility


I would like to ask if I upgrade my licence from v11 to v13 I will be able to use also older versions (like v12)? I'm using Linux and there's no v13 for now.

Re: Version backwards compatibility

Hi kbarycza,

Thank you for your post!

If you have a lifetime licence for a specific version of TeamViewer, that licence will also allow you to use any previous versions of TeamViewer. If you have a licence for TeamViewer 13, you would therefore also be able to use TeamViewer 12, TeamViewer 11 etc. 

That being said, TeamViewer 13 will of course also be available for Linux.

I hope this information helps. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to let me know.

All the best,
