Hi@Admin O365 


So far WVD has limited availability across Azure regions


Unfortunately, no one can provide any time-scale. It all depends on Microsoft demands in that region and available resources. I would recommend you to check above link more often.


Thank you


@Deleted I'm curious. I'm successfully deploying Windows Virtual Desktop in West Europe but according to the list you link to it's not listed. 
Am I not in fact deploying to West Europe?

Hi @Paul Shadwell 


According to Microsoft, during public preview, desktops and apps can be deployed on virtual machines (VMs) in any Azure region, and the management solution and data for these VMs will reside in the United States (US East 2 region). This may result in data transfer to the United States while you test the service during public preview. Microsoft will start to scale out the management solution and data localization to all Azure regions starting at general availability.


Thank you


@Deleted OK, thanks for clarifying.

@Admin O365 GA to AU East (only) is H1 2020...

@Peter Haigh When is GA planned for Europe?
