Citrix Workspace app for Chrome OS
What’s new in 2109
Support for virtual desktops in multiple-monitor setups:
You can now use your virtual desktop in full-screen mode across a subset of available monitors. Previously when you selected multi-monitor mode from the toolbar, the virtual desktop spanned across all available monitors. You can now drag your virtual desktop to span two monitors (out of more than two) and then select multi-monitor mode. A typical use case for this scenario is where you chose to run a video conferencing app on your native device monitor and want to view your virtual desktop contents in full-screen across your other two monitors during the call.
Note: To use this feature, ensure that within General settings, "Use all the monitors to span display" under 'Multi-monitor settings' is selected.
Battery status indicator:
The battery status of the device now appears in the notification area within the virtual desktop session. Previously, the battery status indicator wasn’t visible in the session, which sometimes led to a loss of productivity when the laptop shuts down after the battery runs out.
This feature is supported only on VDA versions 7.18 and later.
Note: For Microsoft Windows 10 VDA, the battery status indicator might take about 1 or 2 minutes to show up.
Support for copying image clips:
Using the standard keyboard shortcuts, you can now copy and paste image clips between your local device and your virtual desktop and app sessions. You can use the standard keyboard shortcuts for copying and pasting while using apps such as Microsoft Word, Microsoft Paint and Adobe Photoshop. Previously, this functionality was available only for text.
- Due to network bandwidth constraints, sessions might become unresponsive when you try to copy and paste an image clip larger than 2 MB.
- You can select and press Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V to copy and paste. The right-click functionality to copy or paste is also supported.
- We've tested this feature with BMP, PNG, JPEG and GIF formats.
Auto-launch of ICA sessions:
Citrix Workspace app for Chrome OS now supports auto-launch of ICA (Independent computing architecture) sessions on Google managed devices or users. With this feature, you can access resources remotely from Citrix Workspace for web. The downloaded ICA file starts automatically, with the Citrix Workspace app for Chrome OS, if it has been installed on the device. Previously, you were able to only download ICA files and open the files manually in order to start resources. Also, the ICA file wasn't deleted when opened and continued to remain on the device. With this release, the ICA file is automatically deleted from the device, once it is used to auto-launch the session.
- If you are on HTTP-based stores, for a secure context, we recommend that you transition to HTTPS-based stores. For more information, see [HTTPS](https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/storefront/1912-ltsr/secure.html#change-storefront-server-base-url-from-http-to-https).
