After testing TeamViewer, AirMirror and AnyDesk, I have found that TeamViewer is simply the best solution for remote control of Android from another Android. It doesn’t bother you with too many permissions or ask you to sign up for a new account. It simply gives you a 9-digit code and you are ready to control your Android smartphone remotely.
So I recommend you to use TeamViewer if you intend to remotely control an Android smartphone from another Android smartphone. Here’s how to do it.
1. First, install TeamViewer for Remote Control (free) on the Android smartphone that you will use to control another device. For example, if you are going to help your parents with smartphone issues, install this app on your device.
2. Then install TeamViewer QuickSupport (free) on the Android smartphone requiring assistance. For example, your parents’ device.

4. Then it will ask you to download an add-on. Press on ” Download And it will take you to the Play Store. Now, download and install it. Special add-ons are required so that TeamViewer can correctly record touch input and support the Android device based navigation system.
5. Finally, the QuickSupport application will offer you a 9-digit code next to “Your ID”. Write it down and share it with the host.
6. Open the TeamViewer for Remote Control app on the host smartphone, enter the 9-digit code and press “Remote control“. On the other device, QuickSupport will receive a prompt. Press on ” To allow“.
7. You will now get a prompt to enable accessibility service for the add-on. Let this. Then it will ask you if you want share screen. Press on “Start now“.
8. Finally, you can remote control an Android smartphone on another Android smartphone with full controls. For example, here I am controlling Mi A1 on my OnePlus 7T without special root or ADB permissions.
9. You can uninstall apps, change key settings, use the virtual navigation bar, and do almost anything remotely. You can also transfer files using the dedicated tool “Files transfert“.
This is how you can remotely control an Android smartphone from another Android smartphone. No need to use a computer to provide quick support to your parents, partner, or anyone. What I loved about TeamViewer is that you don’t need root for a lot of actions and it even works on Android 10 which is great.
