Screen sharing programs have multiple functions. Being able to share your screen with someone else can be very helpful if you need some technical help for example. Nevertheless, you should also know which are the best programs available. TeamViewer and Chrome Remote Desktop are two of the best options. Let’s see what each one has to offers.
Chrome Remote Desktop
This application has a number of advantages. First of all, the fact that it works as a Google Chrome extension makes it easier to install. Additionally, it is completely free and it works faster than most rival applications, which is a plus.
Chrome Remote Desktop also works on more platforms, such as Mac, Linux and Windows. The application also makes sure that you are willing to share your screen and every few minutes you receive a pop up that asks you whether you want to continue to share your screen. Also, Chrome Remote Desktop allows the viewer to actually make actions and control the things on the screen.
The only minor disadvantage is the fact that multiple users cannot connect to a device at once.
This application is also easy to set up and it also works on multiple platforms such as OS X, iOS, Windows and Android. The application also comes with experience, because it was created back in 2005 and it managed to create a reputation.
Another advantage for TeamViewer is the fact that you can also use it to transfer files by dragging and dropping them and you can copy things to your clipboard and paste them to the remote computer. Also, you can connect to more than one computer at a time and you will have different tabs for them.
On the other hand, some users have complained about the fact that their personal information was stolen, which could be a major weakness.
