The Airtame app looks and feels the same no matter what operating system you use. The app can be pre-installed on users computers (MSI), downloaded from or saved to local storage and all versions let you:
1. Search: Type the name or IP address of an Airtame to find it.
2. Mirror: Choose to mirror your whole screen or just one window.
3. Set up new Airtame: When there are new Airtame’s nearby, you will see a notification appear for setting them up.
4. Device Settings: Click “settings” to show the settings of one Airtame. Like WiFi, name, resolution, etc. 5. App Preferences:
  • Manual mode: Those who understand can change advanced streaming settings like Frame rate, Buffer time, Compression quality, etc.
  • Launch at Startup: Choose if you want the Airtame app to start automatically when you start your computer.
  • Streaming Notification: Choose if you want a tools banner to appear on the screen when you are streaming.
  • Download log files: Allows you to download log files of Airtame application to see the behaviour that might be causing issues. Only relevant for tech support issues.
  • Chat with Airtame: Allows you to initiate conversation with Airtame team straight from the application.
  • Single Window Sharing (for Windows 7 only): Allows you to enable Single Window Sharing on Windows 7 machines which have it disabled by default due to instabilities.
  • App Types
    Windows, Mac, Linux Regular Installer
    This is the regular installer that everyone should be familiar with. You download, install and open it. It is available at

    • Mac Installation Instructions
    • Linux Installation Instructions
    Chromebook application
    Application can be found on our website or on Chrome web store. The Chromebook app does not allow you to setup a device. This must be done using Windows or macOS computer.
    Windows Portable/Guest App

    This is perfect for one-time users like guests. It does not require installation or administrative rights, just click and it opens.

    Mass deployment installer (MSI)
    This version of the app is used to pre-configure and install on many company laptops at once, in the background.
    • Mass Deployment on Mac OS: Mass deployment for Mac OS uses different methods, therefore you will need to use the existing .dmg file along with a third party mass deployment software. You will also need to install a separate package called Soundflower for audio capturing. This driver package is included in the .dmg file of the Airtame app but in the case of mass deployment it will need to be installed separately. You can download Soundflower here: Download Soundflower
    Beta Versions
    Some users will benefit from testing updates before they are publicly available. Beta versions of the app and firmware are available for testing.
    The Android Mobile App
    For Android mobile devices, we have created a presentation app which lets you show photos, documents and presentations.
    The iOS Mobile App and Airplay
    iOS devices can use a dedicated app for presentations or they can use AirPlay. Find out more:
