How to Install Anydesk for Remote Connection with GUI

Hello I want to connect to my droplet (Ubuntu 18.04 x64) with this program called Anydesk. It’s a lot like TeamViewer. It allows me to manage my server with a GUI instead of the terminal. So I connected to my droplet using Putty and installed the package, but when I try to connect to it it says the Anydesk windows must be open. I thought maybe when I get a droplet, you install Ubuntu to it but not the desktop environment? As far as I know Ubuntu 18.04 has Gnome Shell as the DE. How can I make this possible?
