GoToAssist App for iOS

The GoToAssist (Remote Support) app provides a streamlined version of Remote Support, which allows you to provide unlimited attended and unattended support sessions from your iOS device. Technicians can use the GoToAssist (Remote Support) app to host support sessions with the following customers:

  • Windows customers running Windows XP or later or Windows Server 2003 or later
  • Mac customers running OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) or later
  • Android customers 2.3.3 OS (Gingerbread) or later (see system requirements for more information)

Note: It is not possible to support iOS customers from the GoToAssist (Remote Support) apps for iOS or Android or the GoToAssist Expert desktop application. Please use customer-initiated support for chat-only support sessions with iOS customers.
