Can I use Quick Assist Android?
“I would really like to be able to assist someone remotely. Can I use Quick Assist on Android?”
-Question from Technibble
The answer is NO!
Unfortunately, there’s no such Microsoft Quick Assist Android for you. There’s no Quick Assist iPhone either. You are unable to use Quick Assist on mobile devices, regardless of whether you are using an iPhone or an Android.
Quick Assist is only available on computers running Windows 10 version 1607 or later. Simply put, you can only provide remote assistance to a Windows computer from another Windows computer. Both computers must have Windows 10 version 1607 or later.
