Tip 💡: While entering remote control mode, you have the option to automatically turn voice chat on. This will be extremely handy when the support agent is trying to communicate with the client/user while controlling the device.

Step 3. Ask your client/user to tap the “Allow” and “Download” buttons on their device (on the AirDroid Remote Support app), which will initiate the remote control add-on download process.
