Both of these apps are actually remote control software that connects your desktop computer to any other device that you own. In other words, you are able to access your desktop computer on your phone or any other device using these two software applications.

It is available for many different operative systems, such as Android, IOS, Windows, and Linux operative systems. You download the software on your devices and you connect them via ID that you get once you install the software on your computer. The ID that you get on your computer, you need to enter into your AnyDesk phone app in order to start the sharing and viewing process. You are able to use your computer on your phone you can type something, view files, make new files and etc.

You are also able to use it even if you are far away from your desktop, and even if you are not connected to the same network as your computer. But, the difference is that TeamViewer uses its servers for the connection and the traffic between you and your computer. Also, you must have the TeamViewer installed on both of your devices.

The compatibility and availability of these applications

Both of these software apps are available on many different operating systems and devices. TeamViewer is available on Windows 10, 8, 7, on Windows Vista and on Windows XP too. And it is also available on Mac, Android, IOS, Linux, and BlackBerry devices. While on the other hand, AnyDesk supports Windows 10, 8, and 7 and only supports IOS and Linux devices. And therefore, AnyDesk has a smaller audience range but is easier to use.


If you want to use these software apps for your own personal, individual use, you are able to get free accounts that have some limitations. But, if you are working for some company, or you are, perhaps the owner of some company, and you want to use this software for maybe some commercial use in your company, you have to pay a monthly subscription.

A monthly subscription to TeamViewer costs around 50 dollars a month and costs 588 dollars a year. The price is not that big if you see the whole picture and all of the features that you get when you get the premium business TeamViewer account. AnyDesk pricing is a bit different, and a lot cheaper. Their monthly subscription fee for companies is 11 dollars a month. With that price, you are able to record your sessions, share files, and also transfer sessions. You are also able to get a free trial with AnyDesk, and cancel your subscription anytime you want to if you, maybe, do not like the app.
