Citrix Workspace app for Chrome OS
What’s new in 2205
- Permit screen sharing of Citrix Workspace app content:
For Microsoft Teams optimization, administrators can permit screen sharing of tabs and windows that are opened only through Citrix Workspace app on managed Chrome devices. With this feature, administrators can control end users’ actions on sharing content that isn’t from the Citrix Workspace app. This feature is applicable to Chrome version M98 and later.
To configure the settings, use Google policies as follows:
Navigate to the Google Admin console > Settings > User & browser settings.
Go to Screen video capture allowed by sites > Allow tab video capture (same site only) by these sites and enter the Citrix Workspace app for Chrome OS app ID -haiffjcadagjlijoggckpgfnoeiflnem.
Now, the end users can share content that is opened through Citrix Workspace app only.
- Logging enhancements:
Previously, client logs and console logs had to be collected separately. Starting with this release, the console logs are a part of client logs. The client logs are available in the log files.
For more information, see https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/citrix-workspace-app-for-chrome/troubleshoot.html#how-to-collect-logs.
- Clipboard supports HTML format:
Starting with this release, we have introduced support for HTML data sanitization, and we recommend using HTML format for clipboard operations where applicable.
For more information on how to set the policies, see https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/citrix-virtual-apps-desktops/policies/reference/ica-policy-settings.html#client-clipboard-write-allowed-formats.
- Email-based store discovery:
You can now use your email ID to sign in and auto-populate the StoreFront store accounts. Click the drop-down menu to view the list of stores associated with your email. This feature aids in a better user experience.
Note: You can still use the store URL to sign in.
As an administrator, to maintain and auto-populate the store accounts, see https://developer.cloud.com/citrix-cloud/citrix-cloud-api-overview/docs/get-started-with-citrix-cloud-apis as a prerequisite.
