Windows Virtual Desktop A/V redirection now generally available

Virtual desktops have previously not been ideal for audio and video conferencing in Microsoft Teams due to latency issues. 

Microsoft have announced the new A/V redirect feature in WVD, which will remove the latency issues. 

Once your customers have enabled the A/V redirect in the Desktop client for Windows, Microsoft Teams calls and meetings audio and video will be handled locally. 

Your customers can still use Microsoft Teams on Windows Virtual Desktop with other clients without optimized calling and meetings. Microsoft Teams chat and collaboration features are supported on all platforms.
