RELEASE: Windows Virtual Desktop gets “Azure Portal integration” & “Microsoft Teams optimization”

imageWindows Virtual Desktop announced 2 new very impactful features you should know about:

  • Azure portal integration
    With the Azure portal integration, you get a simple interface to deploy and manage your apps and virtual desktops. Host pool, workspace, and all other objects you create are Azure Resource Manager objects and are managed the same way you manage other Azure resources.
  • A/V redirect for Microsoft Teams
    ”Once you enable A/V redirect in the Desktop client for Windows, the audio and video will be handled locally for Microsoft Teams calls and meetings. You can still use Microsoft Teams on Windows Virtual Desktop with other clients without optimized calling and meetings.”
