The smartphone revolution has significantly affected IT networks and software market shares. While Windows applications lead the software market, Android is quickly taking over the mobile market. According to NetMarketShare, the Windows Desktop OS market share is more than 80% while the Android market stands at 28% for all versions. Looking at these numbers, it is obvious that several people access windows remote desktop services from an Android device. Therefore, choosing the right Android RDP client is of extreme importance.

While Microsoft offers a remote desktop for Android, it comes with limited options; you can only create a connection profile or search for an existing one to connect to it. While connecting to a profile, the tiny screen and keyboard design makes it difficult to enter the password. In addition, you cannot change the experience settings and themes. Furthermore, the interface is not very intuitive and Android finger gestures are not available.

Parallels RAS is the Best Android RDP

Parallels offers one of the best Android RDP clients available in the market. It is easy to set up and use and manage with its client group policy. It offers extensive features to effectively manage the remote network from anywhere, anytime. The startup screen is also highly intuitive and enables you to easily set up the connection. Additionally, while creating a new connection, it offers two options: you can either connect to the standard RDP connection or access the virtual resource published by Parallels Remote Application Server (RAS). Moreover, you can access application settings to make changes to the experience settings.

Connecting to an existing profile is also simple: click on the connection, provide the password and you are connected to that remote computer. Furthermore, Parallels Remote Desktop For Android Client offers several options that significantly enhance the end-user experience. The mouse option is pretty simple to use. The keyboard is similar to the windows one. Android finger gestures are also available to manipulate the screen. To start programs, you can tap, stretch or pinch icons.

Rich End-User Experience

Parallels RDP Android Client provides a rich end-user experience. In the display settings, you can choose the “RemoteFX” option to receive high-end graphical output on the client device. However, the client device should have average processing capabilities and low latency. For devices that have basic computing resources, you can choose “Basic” or “None” so that the graphical output is received accordingly. You can also change the color depth to as low as “256 colors” or as high as 32-bit best quality. While changing the resolution, remember that large screen sizes require more memory and resources.

When connected to Parallels RAS, universal printing enables you to use any printer in the network. You can enable/disable this feature with a single click. The sound redirection option allows you to play the sound on the remote computer or android device.
