Hello everyone, how are you all doing today? Have any of you heard of AnyDesk for Linux? Quite possibly, rather in my opinion, the best alternative to TeamViewer for Ubuntu. I just received an email a few hours ago from someone who works over at the Germany company behind AnyDesk asking me to highlight their remote desktop software to our viewers and after reading about it, I decided why not? So please, read on.

Today we will highlight AnyDesk for Ubuntu, a remote desktop software that rivals TeamViewer to the core. AnyDesk works naturally for your Linux Distro’s not only Ubuntu but even the likes of Linux Mint, Fedora etc. It allows you to easily connect and access your remote devices including easily being able to access Windows, iOS, Android and perhaps your MacOS device at work, school or at home. Let’s find out what else makes AnyDesk one of the best remote desktop software’s on the market for Ubuntu users like yourself.

What Is AnyDesk About?

AnyDesk was designed from the ground up to be ground breaking. At its core is DeskRT, a new video codec that is specifically designed for graphical user interfaces. That’s why AnyDesk is one leap ahead.

AnyDesk is the fastest remote desktop software on the market. It allows for new usage scenarios and applications that have not been possible with current remote desktop software.

  • Framerate

AnyDesk transmits 60 frames per second over local networks and many internet connections. This is much more than any competing remote desktop application and makes on-screen movement as smooth as possible, as most PC displays also operate at 60 frames per second. AnyDesk makes jerk-free working possible.

  • Latency

Latency at the lowest possible level is critical for working on a remote desktop. The lower the latency, the quicker the remote PC responds to your input. Since internet connections always impose a certain latency when transmitting data from one PC to the other, it is very important that AnyDesk adds as little as possible to the bill. In local networks, AnyDesks latency lies below 16 milliseconds and is no longer perceptible.

  • Access

Forget about low reliability and tedious firewall configurations. Use your personal computer from anywhere and without any headaches. Whether for five minutes or five hours – you won’t even notice AnyDesk is there. Your personalized AnyDesk-ID is the key to your desktop with all your applications, photos, documents and files. And your data stays where it belongs. On your hard drive, and nowhere else.

  • No Lags

Switch the turbo on. Any­Desk uses DeskRT to pro­vide a con­sid­er­ably bet­ter image qual­ity and responsiveness than com­pet­ing screen­shar­ing and re­mote desk­top prod­ucts. DeskRT is a new and in­no­v­a­tive video codec specif­i­cally de­signed for the trans­mis­sion of image ma­te­r­ial from graph­i­cal user interfaces.

Any­Desk con­nec­tions are being routed over Er­lang-based servers. This tech­nol­ogy is widely used in large and ro­bust telecom­mu­ni­ca­tion sys­tems. And its re­li­a­bil­ity makes sure our prod­uct is avail­able when­ever you need it.

  • Lightweight

All users who dis­like bloated soft­ware as much as we do will love how Any­Desk sets new stan­dards in porta­bil­ity. We man­aged to pack all these fea­tures into an in­cred­i­bly small file of just one megabyte. Down­loaded in a glimpse, sent via email, or fired up from your USB drive, Any­Desk will turn any desk­top into your desk­top in sec­onds. No ad­min­is­tra­tive priv­i­leges or in­stal­la­tion needed.
