The next features are the messaging system. That supports conferencing with more than two users. This is a great way to provide instructions to several people at once. You can also send messages to other TeamViewer users with a partner account. The best parts are you can send messages even when they’re offline. TeamViewer also now pops up notifications when a contact becomes accessible. It’s extremely useful for keeping tabs on remote systems that you’re waiting to complete a reboot.
