Citrix: Bridging the Gap Between Virtual and Local App Experience

At Citrix, we want to give our customers a local-like experience for their virtual applications and desktop opened in a Chromebook. With this new release of Citrix Receiver for Chrome 2.5, we have done just that.
Let’s explore the new offerings:

  • Application and desktop icons visible separately in Chrome shelf (taskbar)

Citrix has introduced the capability to display all published apps and desktops as a separate icon in the Google Chrome Shelf, which will help the user to have a local-like experience for the applications and desktop they are working on.

Citrix Receiver for Chrome — Show in Shelf

We can see in the picture above how the published apps appear in the Chrome shelf (taskbar) with a badged icon and when the mouse cursor hovers the application name is visible. To know how to see the apps in the Chrome Shelf, refer the user documentation guide here. Also this feature will be enabled on Google Chrome OS version 6.1 or above.

This enables independent Software vendors to bank on the HDX SDK and open their published applications for any predefined event such as tapping of a card. The SDK allows the apps to launch XenApp and XenDesktop sessions with control and security restrictions. The applications can use below mentioned XenApp/Desktop APIs further.

  1. Launch
  2. Show
  3. Hide
  4. Disconnect
  5. Launch the session in embedded mode.
