Reminder! The AVD Web client will be moving to a new URL beginning 18 April 2022

Beginning 18 April 2022, we're moving the Azure Virtual Desktop web client to a new URL. The new URL is available now and ready for use. Please transition to using the new URL before 18 April 2022.

Why is this change happening?

This change gives us greater flexibility and opportunity for more frequent web client releases.


Recommended action

Starting today, configure the new URL with the same permissions and on the same allow lists as the current URL. Beginning 18 April 2022, end users accessing the old URL will be automatically redirected to the new URL. Some users will be redirected immediately. The rest will be redirected throughout the week.

Right now, we're making changes in the production environment only. Other environments will follow, and we'll send additional notifications at that time.

Will this short link be updated to utilize the new URL? 

Hello and thank you for bringing this to our attention. We will make sure this link is updated. In the meantime, it will be redirected to the new URL the same as the other short links.

Why does the new updated URL still use the old "WVD" name? Will we see another update in the future to reflect "AVD" instead?

Hello. Unfortunately, that one is not so easy to change. I'm sure we will in the future, but I don't have a timeline for that change yet.
