    What's the difference between that and the portable version you download from TeamViewer directly?

    Once major annoyance I have with the portable version from TeamViewer's website is it doesn't save your settings. Does the one from PortableApps save the settings?

    Edit: Nope, it doesn't save the settings as well. I don't know why would anyone use this vs the official portable version from TeamViewer directly.

    The PortableApps.com version is made to work with their PA Platform, and for those who use the platform, perhaps they will be interested in that TeamViewer version, thus why new PA versions are posted here.

    I use teamviewer daily. It is often quite laggy. Like, i can watch 1080p 60fps video/stream no problem. But teamviewer is like 20 fps with blurryness and freezing sometimes. That said, AnyDesk isn't any better really, so it must be something from the remote controlling that requires better internet? Still, a live stream requires you to be able to match the download speed (I think with a decently-low bitrate that twitch streamers use, about 2 maybe 3 mb/s is enough). For youtube even less (not live streaming). But for teamviewer it feels like I must have godly connection of 5-10 mb/s to not lag. Which can be hard to get in places where you literally only have 1 ISP and they promise 100 mbps (12.5 mb/s) but in reality you get half of it or even less in peak times. But maybe I give anydesk a try really. Oh, and teamviewer constantly detects me as commercial user (even tho I don't really use it for work), so I must use TV tools id 2.0 to reset the ID, or else I cannot connect. So annoying...

    I'm running v15.15.5 and none of the newer builds is available via the internal updater. I wonder why they're not pushing them out?

    Teamviewer 15.21.4 Released (August 24, 2021)
    Website
    Changelog

    New Features
    • It's now possible to suppress sending chat messages to a device. This can be achieved by activating the setting for "Disable chat" in the options or via the registry (DisableChat). If disabling chat is activated, the chat tab is no longer visible.
    • It is now possible to keep TeamViewer MSI installations up-to-date using automatic updates.
    • It is now possible to inherit TeamViewer policies to managed devices via managed groups.
    • A new way to display video in meetings is now available: Smart focus, which focuses on your face for better privacy control of your surroundings and more focused meetings!
    Improvements
    • Updated UI on media and list view in Meeting, for improved user experience.
    Bug Fixes
    • Fixed a bug that would cause the app not to reconnect if the internet connection was lost during a running meeting.
    • Fixed a bug in the UI which prevented displaying the "What's New" window.
    • CVE-2021-34858: Installations with existing TV recording files (TVS) were vulnerable to a problem in file parsing that could have allowed someone to execute arbitrary code and could have caused the binary to crash. User interaction as well as a third-party vulnerability would have been required for remote exploitation. We don’t have any indication of exploitation in the wild. Our thanks go to Kdot and the Trend Micro Zero Day Initiative for the responsible disclosure.
    • CVE-2021-34859: In some circumstances, a problem in shared memory management could have caused the TeamViewer service to perform an out-of-bounds read. Access to the machine would have been required for exploitation. We don’t have any indication of exploitation in the wild. Our thanks go to Mat Powell and the Trend Micro Zero Day Initiative for the responsible disclosure.
    • TeamViewer is installed by default in the protected Program Files directory. If a user intentionally had chosen to install it in a different location, someone would have been able to leverage a privilege escalation problem. Access to the machine would have been required for exploitation. We don’t have any indication of exploitation in the wild. Our thanks go to Maciej Miszczyk for the responsible disclosure.
