Computer App
Windows, macOS, Linux and Chromebook all use the same Airtame app, with the same functionality and appearance.

    ⚠️ Chromebook app does not allow to setup Airtame device. It needs to be done with the Windows or MacOS app.
    MacOS users must allow Soundflower to be installed when installing Airtame app for Audio streaming

A stream is started by clicking on the “Start” button of a device or by entering it’s IP address into the search bar and hitting Enter. Multiple devices can be streamed to at once from the same computer by repeating the process of clicking “Start” for each device you wish to add.

From the app you can access app settings, which only affect the stream from your computer, and each Airtame device’s settings, which affect all users connecting to that Airtame device.
Android devices use a presentation app capable of showing Documents, presentations, and photos.
Minimum requirements:
  • Windows 7 or later
  • An Intel Pentium 4 processor or later that’s SSE2 capable

App Types & Deployment
The Airtame app is essential for streaming with Airtame. It can be downloaded from or from your own location, like a USB drive. There are three variations of the Airtame app for different occasions or administrator rights:
  • Regular Installer: This is a normal installer of the app. It requires admin rights.
  • Windows Guest app: This is perfect for one-time users like guests. It does not require an installation or administrative rights, just click and it opens.
  • Windows Mass deployment installer (MSI): This is a version of the app used to pre-configure and install on many company laptops at once and 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.
App Settings
Launch at Startup: The Airtame application starts automatically when you start your computer. If you wish to disable this, you can do so in the widget preferences:

Streaming Notification: When streaming, you will see a notification appear on the screen to remind you that your screen is being mirrored. If you wish to remove the warning you can temporarily close it or disable it completely
