  • Share selected groups with other TeamViewer accounts

  • Easy remote printing in your home office
    Simply print out documents from remote computers on the printer next to you, e.g. while connecting to your office from home, without having to transfer files. You will always have all the important documents for a meeting or a client visit on hand, even if you have forgotten them at the office.
  • Schedule online meetings easily in Microsoft Outlook
    Now you can plan your online meetings directly in your Outlook calendar via the integrated TeamViewer button. Briefly convert existing appointments into TeamViewer meetings and send the updated invitation conveniently with the necessary access information.
  • Session recording, including sound and video for perfect documentation
    Record both, online meetings and remote control sessions, including sound, VoIP, and videos. Ideal for proofs and training in the near and distant future.
  • Remote sound and video
    Hear and see what is happening on the remote computer, whether it is a system sound, music, or videos. You can now show your participants a video in real-time during an online presentation, depending on computer performance and internet connection.
    Video transmission in real-time is only possible in licensed connections.
  • Remote account logout
    View current logins to your TeamViewer account in the TeamViewer Management Console. Close them later if you happen to have forgotten to log out of your account when having worked on another device.
  • Automatically log out of operating systems after remote access
    The remote computer is automatically locked instantly if the connection is closed or interrupted. This ensures that no one gains unintended access to the Mac or Windows computer you were just connected to.

It installs a service.

Is this a GOOD or BAD thing? well I can see a bad thing. if a service and an exploit is found, the person they want to abuse is vulnerable right?

Yes, I believe you're right, although its source being closed makes it more difficult to exploit I think.

In any case, that service (at least) allows you to connect to a remote computer even if no user has already signed in; something I find useful.
