AVD – News November 2023

Here’s what changed in November 2023:

  • Autoscale for personal host pools is now generally available. Autoscale lets you scale your session host virtual machines (VMs) in a host pool up or down according to schedule to optimize deployment costs. It also now supports hibernate (preview), that pauses virtual machines that aren’t being used. For more information, see Autoscale scaling plans and example scenarios in Azure Virtual Desktop and Hibernating virtual machines.
  • We’ve updated the preview of Azure Virtual Desktop on Azure Stack HCI. You can now deploy Azure Virtual Desktop with your session hosts on Azure Stack HCI as an integrated experience with Azure Virtual Desktop in the Azure portal. For more information, see Azure Virtual Desktop on Azure Stack HCI and Deploy Azure Virtual Desktop.
  • Single sign-on using Microsoft Entra authentication is now generally available. Single sign-on enables users to automatically sign the user into Windows, without prompting them for their credentials for every connection. For more information, see Configure single sign-on for Azure Virtual Desktop using Microsoft Entra authentication.
  • In-session passwordless authentication is now generally available. Azure Virtual Desktop supports in-session passwordless authentication using Windows Hello for Business or security devices like FIDO keys. For more information, see In-session passwordless authentication.
  • Windows App is available in preview for Windows, macOS, iOS and iPadOS, and in a web browser. You can use it to connect to Azure Virtual Desktop, Windows 365, Microsoft Dev Box, Remote Desktop Services, and remote PCs, securely connecting you to Windows devices and apps. For more information, see Windows App.
