Remote Control Android Phones and Tablets

Bomgar enables full remote control of Android phones and tablets made by Samsung, and many remote support tools for non-Samsung Android devices.

With Android-powered Samsung devices, support techs have full screen-sharing and remote control from a PC running Windows, Mac or Linux.

Reps can also use live chat support, manage Android system info, do secure file transfer and more.

The Bomgar Support Client for Samsung gives end-users an easy method for requesting help with their Android-powered Samsung devices.

Samsung Android Support Capabilities

Once the remote support session begins, the technician can chat with the end user, see the screen, kill processes, uninstall apps, and control the Android device to resolve the issue. He can also share the session with other team members or external vendors if additional assistance is needed.

With Bomgar, support representatives can control remote desktops, servers and laptops from an Android tablet or smartphone.

Bomgar's mobile representative console for Android devices increases efficiency by allowing mobile support technicians to stay productive. 

A technician can control remote desktops and servers with a toolkit similar to the desktop version of the Bomgar representative console.  View only support is currently offered from one mobile device to another.  Full remote control is coming in a future release.

Not only are screen sharing and remote control available to technicians on Android devices, but a number of other Bomgar features, too.

For example, Bomgar Buttons, Chat Support, Jump Clients, Multi-Monitor Support, Multi-Session Support and Special Actions are all available to reps on Android devices.

Android Support Is Part of the Core Product

All of the Android support features are included in Bomgar’s core product. There are no additional charges for supporting mobile devices.

Android support is included because part of our vision is to help you consolidate remote support. We address with one secure, appliance-based solution what many vendors attempt to address with ten or more tools.
