Announcing the Citrix DesktopPlayer for Windows and Mac Tech Previews!
After Citrix released DesktopPlayer for Mac last year, one of the major capabilities customers asked for was support for Windows devices, which would allow users to run DesktopPlayer on MacBooks and Windows laptops and PCs.
This customer feedback reinforced our vision for client virtualization and, as a result, we accelerated development of extending the functionality of DesktopPlayer for Mac to Windows devices.
At Citrix Summit 2015, we announced and demonstrated a forthcoming Tech Preview of this solution with the DesktopPlayer for Windows Tech Preview.
Today, we are excited to announce the availability of the DesktopPlayer for Windows Tech Preview!
This Tech Preview adds Windows platform support to DesktopPlayer by enabling users to access a local virtual desktop on their Windows laptop or PC, regardless of wireless network conditions – or even if no network connection is available. Moreover, the Tech Preview preserves existing user data, apps, and settings with an easy, non-disruptive install. Users can also switch between local (DesktopPlayer) and hosted (XenDesktop) virtual desktops with ongoing synchronization of data and profiles for a seamless experience on any device.
