WVD news of the week – Ignite edition

Hi and welcome to another WVD news of the week blogpost. Off course this blogpost is completely dedicated to the accouncements of WVD @ Ignite and there were alot ot them. So let get’s started.

Microsoft Endpoint Manager integration

Microsoft Endpoint Manager allows you to manage policies and distribute applications across devices. You can now enroll Windows Virtual Desktop virtual machines that are hybrid Azure Active Directory domain-joined (joined to your on-premises Active Directory and registered with your Azure Active Directory) with Microsoft Intune and manage them in the Microsoft Endpoint Manager admin center the same way as physical devices.

Support for Windows 10 Multi Session is coming in the next coming months.

MSXI App Attach management in the Azure portal

Another big improvement is that we will be able to assign MSIS packages to hostpools via the Azure portal.

Azure Monitor workbook

Azure Monitor workbook for Windows Virtual Desktop aims to provide you all the monitoring telemetry and visualizations you need to debug and troubleshoot issues.

Some other announcement that are also visible on the M365 roadmap for WVD.
