VMware Horizon Client Windows 10 App

An official VMware Horizon Client app has just launched in the Windows Store. The app is in the Universal Windows Platform app format (UWP) and has support for Continuum functionality which allows users with a supported Windows 10 Mobile device to connect to a larger monitor and work while away from their computer.

Here’s the full list of features:

ENHANCED USER EXPERIENCE The VMware Blast Extreme protocol used with Horizon 7 is designed and optimized for mobile users. Blast Extreme leverages H.264 hardware decoding to deliver the best remote experience while reducing power consumption.

LEAVE THE DESKTOP BEHIND WITH HORIZON HOSTED APPLICATIONS Use VMware Horizon 7 hosted applications, leave the desktop behind and run remote applications with delight experience.

WORK SMARTER WITH CONTINUUM Attach your Windows 10 phone to a monitor, mouse and keyboard through wired or wireless accessories to get complete workspace experience without productivity compromise.
