  1. Umar Abid-avatar

    This is literally the best app for controlling a PC with a phone. I just wish it could be true vice versa. Or I could control another PC with my PC. Fixing relatives' small issues or starting bigger processes through a friend's laptop while out would be much more convenient. Or if I could controll my device while it is being charged or something like that. Other apps provide either appearance or performance when using a mobile through a PC. Waiting for Microsoft's advancement in this regard.

  2. Max Biaggi-avatar

    Everything is great, but I want to have a possibility to change the resolution more precisely: to set FHD at 20:9 (FHD+) displays, not only match the device and choose from not standart variants. OK if it will have black borders at the sides, but it will be correct and not blurry. Also mouse pointer is clicking a little bit left at FHD+ screens.

    I have Scandinavian keyboard on chromebook. To get character mapping correctly I need to switch keyboard layout to US on chromebook and keep Scandinavian on Win10 PC. Usable if you know the trick, but better be fixed. I also have occasional glitches with stucked CAPS. Other that that I love the client. Screen rendering is amazing when using custom scaling. Connect and disconnect fast and reliable. After tweaking via gpedit at win10 side I got native GPU drivers to work so 3D apps are fast now.

  4. Mickey Mishra-avatar

    Its so good my old chromebook cp101a is like lighting fast. It feels like I am running hardware inside. Its amazing. GOt it working. Had to do an update. BUT WORKS SO GOOD NOW Even 4k VIdeo, there is a Slight audio synch issue sometimes, but it works great! LOVE IT! MICROSOFT! YOU HIT IT OUT OF THE PARK MAN! GOOD JOB! WOW!!!!! Only problem is Sound. It is It is distorted. Other then that? NO A SINGLE PROBLEM as of NOW. I have LOVE THIS APP! If the sound can be fixed? OMG! I LOVE YOU GUYS!

  5. Zain Ajam-avatar

    I really like this app. Enables me to access my windows virtual machines from my chromebook. I really really dislike how, on chrome os, the top and bottom bars appear when my mouse hovers at the top and bottom of the screen. Many times I have accidentally clicked X on the entire remote session when trying to close an app in that session. Similarly, when i move mouse to bottom corner of screen to click on VM start button, the chrome OS tray comes up, and I end up clicking on the chrome launcher

  6. M B-avatar

    Tricky initial setup, could be way more simplified. I can't access device storage on tablet. Screen resolution too small and no precise resolution option. Touch option needs improving, both in terms of accuracy and response.

  7. S M-avatar

    Easy setup. Works perfectly. As advertised. Fully control my Windows 10 PC desktops from my phone or tablet. So easy & intuitive! Kudos to the developers. Apple iOS version works just as well!

  8. Om Prakash Sharma-avatar

    Om Prakash Sharma


    This app is working well but it's not good for launching any Citrix app(faild to launch, while it's able to launch if work on direct system) during remote session through this app. So this issue make this less useful.

  9. Filip Babić-avatar

    App icon doesn't conform to system icon shape, desktop previews are to tall for practical use (landscape would be much better), no dark theme, UI feels unfinished. Does what I need it to, but it's a pain to use.

  10. Paul king-avatar

    Can't find a way around not having to enter a password everytime we log in. Where is remember password function to auto connect once password is saved, its on PCs but not on this app or can't be easily found. Ruins the app.

  11. Harmanpreet Singh-avatar

    Harmanpreet Singh


    It is a good app, no worries but you should give an option to select your own desktop via password or username and password, I hope you can understand it, And you Will solve this problem by giving an update in windows 10 which is important for all the windows users

  12. David Bazon-avatar

    This one is by far the smoothest remote connection app I have ever seen. Imagine, playing PC Minecraft on your phone, and it's actually very playable and smooth!! Awesome job, Microsoft! Seamlessly integrated with Windows 10. I would give you 1000 🌟.

  13. Ethan Bodin-avatar

    Running on a Chromebook. Works well aside from the sticky modifier keys noted by others. Would be great if the screen would stay visible (instead of grayed out) when it's not in the foreground, and if there were key combinations that could be sent straight to Windows such as alt-tab.

  14. Rudolf Enberg-avatar

    There should be a setting that keeps the display resolution of the target machine. If I accidentally switch to portrait mode the desktop becomes very narrow. This forces many apps into a small window size, which they'll remember in the future.

  15. Howie Sherman-avatar

    Cool app; deserve 5 star rating. I have android mobile of old version. In spite of these, this app supported my device , works succesfully by casting pc screen to my android. Really, I enjoy this.

  16. Robert Lord-avatar

    everything is perfect except no fix with Samsung DeX since Android 10. All windows Hotkeys do not work within the app. especially ALT +TAB to change windows. Not sure how else to get this more attention. it's a huge productivity loss.

  17. JoshTripleH-avatar

    It works, but not amazingly. Good for a gimmick or to change your vid or something, but extensive workloads or anything not on the same network forget about it.

  18. pieter van os-avatar

    It works great, but it's annoying that the shift button will trigger caps. Is it possible to disable this feature through a settings option?

  19. Tiffany Millsapp-avatar

    Tiffany Millsapp


    Overrides your keyboard so you can't use caps/shift correctly. Will randomly shut down/freeze up. Can't change display/font size settings. It will do what you need it to do in a bind without too much trouble.

    It doesn't work.If my phone is connected to the same network as the PC Android RD connect to the desktop. However if the phone is connected to LTE, or another wifi network I am greeted by the 0x104 error.

  21. Michael Stampy-avatar

    Rubbish! needs fixing..using my tab to design on a 3d freezes every few seconds then I had to go back to my laptop...may be coming from untrusted internet provider but still....playing video on second device also lags..

  22. Said Nagiyev-avatar

    Works great. But mouse and keyboard disabled while connecting please fix it and add gamepad layout on screen to play or use computer

  23. Suzanne C.-avatar

    Works great. It's just like being at the machine... but is smaller yet very clear!!!

  24. Marco Castro-avatar

    Wrong characters when opening a command window. No start menu, but works fine.

    Phenomenal RDP client for android. Simple,stable, fast and gets the job done

    Best remote desktop client for Windows. Great for editing my music on other devices.

  27. Dymitro Beloborodov-avatar

    Dymitro Beloborodov


    The app is great, but please add Wake-on-Lan Magic Packet sending option so I could remotely turn my PC on, and not keep it turned on all the time 😊

  28. Michael Borgese-avatar

    Michael Borgese


    Could be better. Awkward and disruptive communication on PC when using multi-monitor but core functionality is solid

  29. Jonathan Whittle-avatar

    Jonathan Whittle


    It works fine but without a display to all screens function (which I understand is available on the Mac & Windows version) I will be using alternatives which is disappointing

  30. Willem Toerien-avatar

    I love it, but when I have a physical keyboard over Bluetooth, the shift key locks. That is super annoying.

  31. Edwin Ari-avatar

    My emulator turn black sreen every time when re-login to pc using RDP. This is not happening before I update windows. Any solution?

  32. Balahura Adrian-avatar

    Balahura Adrian


    Is it possible that the remote desktop keep the display on, not going to lock screen when used remotely? Thank you!

  33. Adnan Khalid-avatar

    Excellent application for remotely work . Smooth and fast speed.

  34. Pepega Pepega-avatar

    Good but isn't supported PC side with basic version of windows 10. Kinda disappointing.

  35. Khalid Mgahed-avatar

    We need search for machines please It's very frastrating to keep manually locat the machine i want .. instead of searching for it and back and restore option is a must ..

  36. Creative Art's Of Life-avatar

    Everything is fine with this application but it'll be more awesome when one more different feature to to only control the PC by accessing the keyboard and mouse on to the phone wirelessly

  37. anwar fazaa-avatar

    Aws work space should learn from this client, its flawless and easy to control , specially having the pointer moving as using a trackpad.

  38. Jamie Walsham-avatar

    Very very impressed with local network access and Windows10 tablet mode integration.

  39. Christian Todhunter-avatar

    Christian Todhunter


    Awesome app, just wish I didn't have to side-load onto Android TV. Please make an official app!!!

  40. Kay 31-avatar

    Please give option to make keyboard opaque so can see what you are typing on screen still (add opacity levels of keyboard)

  44. Elkasio Lopez-avatar

  45. Shiro Surfer-avatar

    Useful for checking some installation on my lan computers or if im in bed and just want to lazy sleep just remote log and turn off or hibernate

  46. Alok Kumar-avatar

    Best app to control remotely, but require perfect uses of mouse pointer.

  47. Oblex s-avatar

    not horrible but the frame rate is extremely slow and laggy.

  48. alberico t-avatar

    Occasional Freezes on my phone w arm procie (already tried turned off udp on client), ran flawlessly on my tablet w intel atom. Connecting to a w10 pc

  49. Bill Wincer-avatar

    How do you initiate a shadowing connection (you don't log off the local user on the host, you control their session)

  53. Kim Whitford-avatar

    No Thanks. Constant error -104 when trying to connect to Win 10 PC

  54. MD ATIK UZ ZAMAN-avatar



    Great experience! Is it possible to transfer files from Windows 10 to remote device through this app?

  55. Imran Mehdi-avatar

    The app is phenomenal 😁 you can use your windows from any Android, n use touch as well, so windows becomes a tablet

  56. Aaron Aldridge-avatar

    Surprisingly well-made and functional. THE BEST remote desktop app I've ever used

  57. Anthony Apparailly-avatar

    Anthony Apparailly


    Won't work with Microsoft HOME edition. Only PRO, Ultimate and Entreprise. Big waste of time. UNINSTALLED.

  58. Matt Peers-avatar

    Works really well for remote desktop access from a phone

    Add->Desktop = crash. Acer Chromebook R11. chromeOs 81.0.4044.94

  60. Steve Liu-avatar

    Can't connect to Windows Family/Home Edition. That sucks.

  61. Everthing Made-avatar

    I can't use it! Keeps giving me an error and no matter what I try it doesn't work

  62. Olivier F-avatar

    this app can't find my pc 1 foot away from it and as for anything microsoft related, support is useless.

  63. Dragoş Dumitriu-avatar

    Not working yet. Just a blank screen.

  64. Gabriel Inkoom-avatar

    I really like this app it enables me connect to my network from any where of the globe and esay to use

    Wow. Microsoft making everything easy for user This app is awesome I feel im using windows 10 on my android phone

  67. Muhammad Azam-avatar

    It doesn't allow to connect an account without password.

  68. Alex Lopez-avatar

    Using this app with my Pixelbook Go. Very simple and, for the most part, works well to access my work station from home. Some issues I'm running into are using quick keys within the window, Shift sticks, Copy/Paste options are hit and miss when using them in Excel, and no way to use a dual monitor view through the window. Fix those issues, and I would say you have the best on the market.

  69. Aiman Ridhwan-avatar

    Don't work. Need to elaborate on how to connect. Would give 0 star

  70. Stjepan _-avatar

    Super user- friendly remote desktop experience on Android

  71. Sayan De-avatar

    The best remote desktop app I've used for a Windows PC. I've tried many remote desktop apps in the past and they all seem to have problems like connection timeout, frame drops and inconsistency. This is the only app that works. I have leave it running in the background for hours when I need it, and it always keeps the connection alive. Highly recommended for all Windows users! 👍

  72. Nicholas Bain-avatar

    Greatest remote control app. I'm using this to connect across the world.

  73. Nathan Fohkens-avatar

    Honestly, this is probably the best an app could get for windows remote desktop from a phone.

  74. Master Ichigo-avatar

    Keyboard not working when connected to rdp

    Excellent. Smooth & responsive.

    Way to go Microsoft! Instant remote desktop gratification.

  78. ROHIT PATIL-avatar

    Good the screen has issues when loading remotely

  81. David Chin-avatar

    Very useful for assisting user in troubleshooting.

  82. foxter96-avatar

    Can't figure out how to connect.. completely useless..

  83. David Vera-avatar

    Doesn't support home version so I have to go with a 3rd party app. Lame.

  84. Topter 184-avatar

    This app is not intuitive at all! I added an rdp but there is no button to select or connect to it, only to edit it! The help file is about as generic as you can get, and refers to items which don't even appear in the app! Experience so far... Rubbish!

  85. Andrey Lappo-avatar

    Минусы: названия в Google Play и после установки различаются, после включения функции "Удаленный рабочий стол" в Microsoft Windows 10.0.17763.1098, с планшета HTC Nexus 9 LTE (Android 7.1.1) этот компьютер видится, но при попытке соединения с ним после "Connecting to (...) Initiating remote connection" выдает "We couldn't connect to the remote PC. Make sure the PC is turned on and connected to the network, and that remote access is enabled. If this keeps happening, ask your admin or tech support for help. Error code: 0x7 (extended)".

  86. jayinatlanta-avatar

    Works great, free, secure and built-in to Windows 10. Just turned on the remote desktop setting in Windows and was able to use this for everything I needed. Minus one star for being a little quirk regarding using scrollbars on the far left while trying to use the in-app keyboard. The screen seems to cut off the margins when the keyboard is open.

  87. ABHISHEK V-avatar

    Controls could have been better..or infact modified. Its hard to navigate with mouse cursor. And there is lag in playing videos,the audio-video sync is gone. And many important apps simply crashes. Anyway a very useful tool. Thanks Microsoft

  88. Kevin A-avatar

    Good but if a bluetooth mouse is connected to tablet, then the in app keyboard no longer works properly, it just does not show any letters. The windows key shift ctrl alt bar that normally appears on the top of the keyboard appears, but all other rows are missing. So you can either use a mouse, or type, but not both. Being able to toggle between Touch and Mouse with a single click would be nice also, currently you have to go into the menu to toggle, two clicks.

  89. Dale Stewart-avatar

    Cut/Paste Issues. Please Fix

  90. Jay Katiyar-avatar

    It does the job perfectly without any problems, but i would like to see 2 more features - 1. It should wake my pc from sleep (using separate app for that) 2. Option to use my smartphone as a remote to control my pc instead of only casting it (again using a separate app for that). That's why 4 stars...will change to 5 if those features are added as well.

  91. Ritesh-avatar

    I guess Windows Home edition does not deserve remote features even on local network.

  92. deep down-avatar

    Verification code and call not received Not working

  93. Nil Bejasa-avatar

    It does not work in Samsunv Galaxy Note 10 Lite

  94. Vishwanath Nagaraj-avatar

    Vishwanath Nagaraj


    Only supports a few of the Windows systems. Doesn't let you know that in the mobile version.

  95. Timmy N-avatar

    When it works it's fantastic, however have spent hours trying to get it to work with Remote Desktop gateways at times and it's not consistent between iOS and Android versions when issues occur - hard to work out if it's the app or the network (support is tricky). Would be good to be able to force RPC over https for better compatibility with reverse proxy & web protection firewalls as one example. But keep up the good work, would love a mature stable version that is easy to support & trust

  96. Wow Sync-avatar

    Great app but lacks an option to share a specific path only instead of whole android device. 3/5 stars because of that. Will change to 5/5 as soon as this option is available on android. (This is already awailable on iOS)

  97. Andy Bairstow-avatar

    I'm having issues trying to download this app to my ASUS Chromebox CN62. It installed OK on my Samgung phone and also on my ASUS C434T Chromebook, no problem . Can anyone advise if it is compatible for my CN62?? There's no mention of it not being compatible.

  98. Ted Mead-avatar

    Does not work with VPN. I can access private web pages with the Chromebook, the terminal (Alt-Ctrl-T) can ping the remote PC, but this app will not connect either by fully qualified name or IP address. My understanding is that it worked in the past. I'm hopeful it will get resolved (or documentation showing how to do it).

  99. Frances Mays-avatar

    This app is my life, is there a remote power/restart button or do I have to download another app? Even if it's on the Microsoft launcher we need more Microsoft apps

    This app won't connect to my remote desktop at all. My remote desktop access does work, however, if I use the remote desktop function on my Windows PC.
