Christmas is coming: time to celebrate our success!
by Maria Alonso
As 2016 comes to an end, we wanted to reflect upon the many great things we were able to accomplish together at AnyDesk this year:
Two years on the market
AnyDesk was founded two years ago in Stuttgart, Germany. Unlike other remote desktop systems, we wanted to create a software that allows the user to work almost in real-time, and we made it: our application offers a speed of up to 12 milliseconds (invisible to the naked eye), making it the fastest system on the market. AnyDesk is also very safe software as it uses TLS 1.2 encryption technology - the same as the online banking sector. With AnyDesk, data does not move around in the cloud and users sharing the connection provide authentication details in encrypted form for increased security. Speed and security make our product unique! AnyDesk helped to deliver spectacular European Cup images together with Spidercam. They relied on our remote desktop tool to provide technical support for its systems. Every sports fan has seen the spectacular images from stadiums and arenas: using so-called aerial cameras that ‘fly over’ the playing field by remote control, they provided breathtaking TV images from a bird’s eye perspective. Last July, Spidercam cameras were used to broadcast impressive footage from the football stadiums at the European Championship.
AnyDesk for macOS
In July we launched AnyDesk for macOS, which delivers all the AnyDesk qualities you're already used to from the PC or Linux versions. The Mac version is native and therefore highly performant. In terms of the remote connections it uses the same technology as our other versions. AnyDesk for macOS, Windows and Linux are compatible with each other.
So, what´s coming next? Android and iOS apps will follow soon. Our iOS version is currently in QA, and we expect a release next year.
AnyDesk 3.0 with address book management & other amazing features
A couple of weeks ago we were proud to announce the release of our latest version, AnyDesk 3.0. Its most important new feature is our integrated address book - highly requested by our customers. The address book is synchronized between all seats of your "AnyDesk Professional"- license and lets you comfortably manage computers and contacts using our innovative hierarchical tagging system. Tags can be used to create groups so that professional users can more easily organize their customers or frequently used remote maintenance partners.
It also includes a speed dial, that shows the online status of the respective computers directly in the address book. This allows users to see which of their contacts are available or offline at a glance.
Other new features and improvements in AnyDesk 3.0 include an upgraded user interface, bookmarking of favourites and individual sorting options in the speed dial list as well as an optimized chat view. Furthermore, our program interface has undergone a complete refresh.

10 million downloads
Yes, this was the best news to finalize an amazing year. Recently, we crossed an amazing milestone reaching 10 million downloads with clients from over 80 countries and who are using AnyDesk in different 23 languages. How did this happen? With innovation, quality, continuous development and trust. We´re looking forward to the next 10 million!
This success would not have been possible without our beloved clients. You made this happen by giving us feedback, trusting us and choosing our remote desktop solution.
Happy Holidays! We´re now off to celebrate! Your AnyDesk Team.
