Now this is interesting !!! Since I wanted to get the remote access working I was looking out for other options available on the internet. Turns out that Airdroid did the job for me ! ... I had to install the Airdroid PC application and the mobile app and through that I'm able to remotely control my mobile phone. I've enabled WiFi and also have the USB cable connected from PC to mobile. Question to TeamViewer Team. How come Airdroid is able to get the job done while TeamViewer could not. The error that I got on TeamViewer "Host" and "QuickSupport" apps was "this device supports screen sharing only". Hope TeamViewer's Developer Team is able to figure out this problem. You folks can reach out to me registered email address and I'd be happy to help the dev team.

So Xiaomi develops hardware and the OS which is MIUI. When you say that TeamViewer requires Xiaomi's co-operation does it mean a hardware support or a software support. My guess is that you require a software support in which the MIUI-OS is in a position to take inputs remotely. So assume that on Xiaomi's device one installs custom ROMs such as LineageOS ... will that work ? 3 days back I've bought Redmi Note 5 Pro and I don't see Teamviewer been supported nor do I see a LineageOS image ready yet for this recently launched device. However I'm sure a they will come out with a ROM for such a popular device. Question is: Will LineageOS work with TeamViewer on Redmi Note 5 Pro ? Thanks
