AnyDesk Updates for Windows and Linux are now available!

Why updating your software is a must do?

An update is meant to address two objectives:

  • Correct bugs within the software that makes it perform less than optimal
  • Add new major features and tools.

When you update, you are updating the software version and the patch number. In this case: AnyDesk 3.2.0 for Windows and AnyDesk 2.9.0 for Linux.

How do I update to the latest version of AnyDesk?

AnyDesk does not update automatically. The update process has to be initiated manually. When a new version is available, this is indicated by the blue box in the connection tab. Click on the link showing the latest version number to update AnyDesk. The good news are that our updates for free and all our versions are compatible with each other.
