How To Remotely Control a Smartphone From Smartphone (Android/iOS)

We can easily access other computer remotely over the internet using TeamViewer or other remote desktop software, but when it comes to remotely control a smartphone from a smartphone, only TeamViewer can do this task better. Like a desktop, when you connect with an other smartphone with TeamViewer, everything you can access and control on the other phone including their graphical screen. The computer is absolutely not required in this task.

There are no limitations on connecting with a different mobile platform or OS. It means you can remotely control a iOS from Android or an Android from iOS. TeamViewer QuickSupport app is supported on iOS, Android and Windows 10 Mobile device.

TeamViewer QuickSupport app

The app is absolutely free and didn’t require any registration. Install TeamViewer QuickSupport app on your phone and access your phone remotely from a desktop or via Android/iOS device. The app works over the internet, so please make sure your’s and the other phone’s internet connectivity should not be slow.
