Microsoft Remote Desktop for Android is a useful app from Microsoft that lets remotely control a Windows PC right from your Android smartphone or tablet. The program uses the RDP protocol present in all Windows operating systems, so it isn’t necessary to install a third-party server client on the PC to establish connection.
Microsoft Remote Desktop app makes it easy for you to access resources from your Windows from almost anywhere as well as you can stream video and audio at higher quality with improved compression and bandwidth usage.
However, unlike Team Viewer, one of the most popular apps for remotely controlling a computer, Microsoft Remote Desktop is mainly intended for advanced users, because the setting up requires certain knowledge on remote desktop protocol (RDP), but the main advantage of using it is that it is more secure and reliable.
The Remote Desktop makes it possible to establish a direct connection with the PC without a server application (as in the case of teamviewer), allowing to get even better performance, especially when used with local networks.
