Teamviewer is open-source, cross-platform software. The main feature of this software is to connect any system remotely. This is very important when you are stuck in your system. Someone can help you by taking remote access to your system. You can share your screen, transfer the files and make a chat conversation. It is available for all platforms like Windows, Linux, macOS, and Android as well. In windows, you can download Teamviewer and install it. But, in Ubuntu, it will be installed using the command line.

You will need to follow the below requirements-
- Ubuntu 20.04.2 or later version (As an Operating System)

Add Teamviewer Repository in Ubuntu
Teamviewer is not included in the Ubuntu APT repository. Hence, before installing it, you will have to add its package. Therefore, you will have to hit the below command.
$ wget https://download.teamviewer.com/download/linux/teamviewer_amd64.deb
This will take a couple of seconds to add the package to the APT repository.
After adding the package, you will have to install it. So, in the terminal hit the below command.
sudo apt install ./teamviewer_amd64.deb

Here, I allowed the prompt for the installation.
After installing, you can open it for connecting to any system.
