The printers shared by Universal Print are not visible or cannot be added in Azure virtual machines.

They must add support as many companies currently have no solution within azure for printing

@Emlly_Hiraldo, will you please describe your environment in more detail? This scenario should work. It's how Universal Print printers are used with Windows 365 Azure VMs.

Status changed to: Clarification needed

Universal Print is supported on Azure (and other) Virtual Machines. There are some user experience caveats and those are being currently fixed.

The issue, I believe, is that the standard AVD deployment has Azure AD DS joined session hosts.  This negates the ability to Hybrid join the session host, or even register the machine for Work or School accounts on a per user basis.  Without this AAD registration, I have not found a way to actually connect to Universal Print directory and add the printer to the session host.  Does anyone else have a workaround?  Thanks!
