With the latest update, we have added the following capabilities:

1.Users in that regions connecting to VMs deployed in the named geographies will notice improved session experience:

  1. Lower connection latencies for Japan geo in the production environment - You can check preliminary latency results using our experience estimator - https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/virtual-desktop/assessment/
  2. Lower connection latencies for AUS, APAC, India, and Brazil geos in the validation environment - If you want to test the user connection latency and you have users connecting from and near these geos, please create/ use host pool with the validationenv parameter enabled. You can follow instructions here for the same - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-desktop/create-validation-host-pool

2.Fixed issues where force logging off users from a session host didn’t work

 

NOTE: Our roadmap [https://aka.ms/wvdroadmap] will be updated shortly to reflect those improvements.

 

Missing functionality? Go to https://aka.ms/wvdfbk and share with use the idea along with the problem you want to solve.

 

Thanks
