The update includes some new features as well, in addition to behind-the-scenes improvements. The most important ones are as follows:
- Our new free Lite plan (complete with high-speed streaming and up to 256-bit encryption),
- Native support for Macs with M1/M2 chips,
- Change to offline license formatting,
- Instant Support is now called On-Demand Assist.
Let’s take a look at some of these in a bit more detail.
The all-new Lite subscription
Our free (for non-commercial use) plan has been given a complete makeover, replacing the old Home subscription.
Those using the new Lite plan now get high-speed streaming. Security has also been increased, with the option of 256-bit AES session encryption.
The Lite plan offers access to three managed devices.
Existing Home subscribers must keep in mind that these changes only apply to the Lite plan. They’ll continue to access their Home subscription within VNC Connect 7.x.
Native support for Apple’s M1 & M2 chip
We now have native support for Macs with the M1 and M2 chips. This means that you no longer need to use Rosetta to run VNC® Viewer and VNC® Server.
Offline licensing changes
The way offline licenses are formatted has changed starting with VNC Connect 7.x. However, if you’re currently using offline licensing, 6.x licenses won’t stop working for you. These will keep functioning until their expiry date.
