The right technology partners are an important part of Intune’s vision to extend the value of our service by plugging into and working with other popular point solutions. Intune partnerships are designed to enhance our core functionality by delivering interoperability that results in rich new experiences for our customers.
We’re excited for you to check out two new Intune integrated experiences, brought to you in our latest service update: the release of the Xamarin
component for our Intune App SDK and TeamViewer
integration for remote assistance.
Intune App SDK support for Xamarin
The Intune App SDK Xamarin component
allows you to easily enable Intune mobile app management features in your mobile iOS and Android apps built with Xamarin.
With our new support for Xamarin, we’re making it easier for developers to use our Intune App SDK to prevent data loss in their mobile iOS and Android apps. The Xamarin component was designed specifically for use when building cross-platform mobile apps on the Xamarin platform, so developers can easily bake in mobile application management (MAM) controls as part of their standard app development process. If you are a developer building a cross-platform app, you can now quickly apply Intune MAM controls to your project with very little modification to your mobile app.
To get started, download the Intune App SDK and its plugins, available on Github
and the Xamarin component store
. The Xamarin component supports Xamarin Cycle 7 and above.

TeamViewer integration for agent-managed Windows PCs
Our new TeamViewer integration delivers a remote assistance solution for Intune agent-managed Windows PCs.
We’ve introduced a TeamViewer Connector within the Intune admin console that allows you to register your company’s TeamViewer account with Intune. Once you’ve done this, your end users can use the Intune Center on their PCs to request remote assistance, and they’ll receive help from your help desk through a TeamViewer connection. All of the TeamViewer features are available to use during your remote session including chat, remote restart, video, screen annotation, file transfer, and more.
If you’re not already using TeamViewer and want to see how this works, get started with a trial account from TeamViewer. Once you’ve tried it out, jump over to the TeamViewer site to purchase a license from TeamViewer. There are several license options, and all of them work with Intune.
