Parallels Access 6 for Windows and Mac ships
Now part of Corel, Parallels has launched its Parallels Access 6 for Windows and Mac product, introducing new features to its popular solution that lets you run Windows on your Mac.
The new release adds several new tools:
Remote Help: Create and send a Parallels Access link to their friend, co-worker or family member in need of a bit of IT support. The link gives the user the ability to remotely access and work with up to five PC or Mac computers from an unlimited number of iOS and Android devices or HTML5 browsers.
Improved gesture support: Familiar iPhone, iPad and Android native touch gestures can be used to easily work with full-featured Windows and macOS applications and files.
Bluetooth support for mice, trackpads, and gestures in iPadOS 13.4 or later.
Remote working is the new jam
The focus really is on remote working. The company now offers a Parallels Access Business Plan that enables IT admins to create and manage an unlimited number of users and concurrent user licenses. This lets them allow employees to access their computer from an unlimited number of mobile devices and HTML5 browsers.
“Unpredictable COVID-19 shelter-in-place and social distancing orders make it critical for remote workers to have easy-to-use solutions on their devices to stay productive—especially when IT tech support, coworkers and friends are not available locally to help with opportunities or resolving challenges that arise,” said Nick Dobrovolskiy, Parallels Senior Vice President of Engineering and Support.
Also new Parallels Toolbox
The company has also introduced Parallels Toolbox 4 for Windows and Mac, its suite of dozens of useful utilities for Mac and Windows users.
This adds a new break time tool, unit converter and better user interface features that put you in better control of your system.
