TeamViewer ( has announced TeamViewer 7 for Mac. The new version allows cross-platform online sessions between Windows, Linux, Mac, iOS and Android.

Having released TeamViewer 7 with the brand new TeamViewer Online Meetings functionality for Windows and Linux earlier this year, the latest version for Mac OS X makes it possible for Mac users to join and host online meetings as well as carry out remote support sessions.
