We have received a number of questions from users regarding how to test Windows Virtual Desktop from our HTML5, Windows, macOS, iOS and Android clients. Here's how:

 

HTML5: aka.ms/wvdweb

Windows: Download the Windows client here and refer to this documentation.

iOS (Beta): On your iOS device, visit aka.ms/rdiosbeta and follow the instructions.

macOS: Download the macOS client from the App Store.

Android: Download the Android client here and refer to this documentation.

 

For more information about Windows Virtual Desktop: aka.ms/wvd

For more information about the Remote Desktop Clients: aka.ms/rdclients

@briantaintor Also, there is some confusion about the 'other' Remote Desktop apps, and even the RADC method.  These appear to work just fine with WVD testing, but the WVD Client is a different branch?  Also, the WVD Client branch is NOT in the Windows Store, correct?

Correct, the Windows WVD client is not in the app store.
