For many organizations, deploying a VDI environment is necessary for managing access to applications and systems for remote employees, and can provide benefits of improved security, performance, and cost savings.

Teams users on VDI can now manage Teams calls and meetings in a separate pop-out window, allowing them to use the main Teams client while a call or meeting is in progress. Accessing Teams and chats will be possible while keeping the popped-out call or meeting window visible – whether on the same screen as the main Teams client or on a secondary display.

Meeting and call controls such as mute, video, chat, and leave are now located at the top of the meeting window for easy access. Meeting screen pops out leaving the main Teams window accessible. Getting started: Once users have the latest version of Teams and have satisfied the other requirements, they will see a banner when a new version of Teams is opened for the first time.

At this point, they will need to restart Teams. After Teams has restarted, users can open chat in a separate window by simply right-clicking on any chat and selecting Pop out chat option. Teams users on VDI can give and take control during calls and meetings while sharing their desktop. Give control Presenters can give control to another meeting participant to change a file, help present, or demonstrate.

Presenters can take back control of the shared content at any time. Teams then sends a notification to that person to let them know the presenter is sharing control. While control is shared, they can make selections, edits, and other modifications to the shared screen. Take control To take control while another person is sharing, simply:.

Select Request control, from the sharing toolbar prompting the presenter to approve or deny the request. Once a user has control, they can make selections, edits, and other modifications to the shared screen. To return screen ownership to the presenter, select select Release control. This feature is available in desktop sharing scenarios but is not supported in individual window sharing. It will soon be available to Azure Virtual Desktop.

Teams users on VDI can now use real-time captions to improve meeting accessibility for participants with hearing impairments, varying levels of language proficiency, or those who may be attending from noisy environments.

Users can also adjust the language captured for improved the accuracy of the captioning. During a scheduled Teams meeting, users can start a live transcription of the proceedings. The text appears alongside the meeting video or audio in real time, including the speaker’s name unless they chose to hide it and a time stamp.

Once enabled, any participant can opt to see, save, and download the transcription. Learn more about using live captions in a Teams meeting.

The endpoint decodes and provides the multimedia locally, moving the Citrix Workspace app window back into the hosted Microsoft Teams app. Authentication and signaling occur natively on the Microsoft Teams-hosted app, just like the other Microsoft Teams services for example chat or collaboration.

Citrix and Microsoft recommend the latest available version of Microsoft Teams and to keep it up to date. Unsupported Microsoft Teams desktop app versions show a blocking page to users and request to update the app. We recommend that you follow the Microsoft Teams machine-wide installation guidelines.

Also, avoid using the. All users can then uninstall Microsoft Teams if they have administrator credentials. Suppose you have Windows 10 dedicated persistent VDI environments. In this case, use the. We recommend that you install Microsoft Teams version 1. Version 1. For example, Breakout Rooms, pop out windows for meetings and chat, or meeting reactions. For information, see Optimization for Microsoft Teams with Citrix App Layering in the list of features that managed through the registry.

The following is an example of folders, desktop shortcuts, and registries created by installing Microsoft Teams machine-wide installer on a Windows Server bit VM:. When using the. All the files are placed in AppData. The best practice recommendations are based on the use-case scenarios. Using Microsoft Teams with a non-persistent setup requires a profile caching manager for efficient Microsoft Teams runtime data synchronization.

With a profile caching manager, the appropriate user-specific information is cached during the user session. For example, the user-specific information includes, user data, profile, and settings. Synchronize the data in these two folders:.

Exclude the files and directories from the Microsoft Teams caching folder as described in the Microsoft documentation. This action helps you to reduce the user caching size to further optimize your non-persistent setup. In this scenario, the end user uses Microsoft Teams in one location at a time. In a common virtual desktop deployment, each user is assigned to one desktop, and Microsoft Teams is deployed in the virtual desktop as one application.

We recommend enabling the Citrix Profile container and redirecting the per-user directories listed in Per-user installer into the container.

Features are in continuous development and are added on a regular basis, and functionality will expand over time. Using Teams in a virtualized environment might be somewhat different from using Teams in a non-virtualized environment. For example, some advanced features might not be available in a virtualized environment, and video resolution might differ. The Teams desktop app was validated with leading virtualization solution providers.

With multiple market providers, we recommend that you consult your virtualization solution provider to ensure that you meet the minimum requirements. Review the information in this section to ensure that you meet all requirements for proper functionality. You can download the latest version of Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops at the Citrix downloads site.

You’ll need to sign in first. For the latest server and client requirements, see the Optimization for Microsoft Teams article on the Citrix website. VMware Horizon is a modern platform for secure delivery of virtual desktops and apps across the hybrid cloud. To offer a great end-user experience, VMware Horizon provides media optimization for Teams.

This optimization improves overall productivity across virtual desktops and apps, and enhances user experience when calling and meeting using Teams.

The required media optimization components are part of the Horizon Agent and Horizon Client by default and there’s no need to install any additional plug-in to use the optimization feature for Teams. To get the latest requirements and instructions on how to configure media optimization for Teams, see the Configuring Media Optimization for Microsoft Teams article on the VMware website. Deciding on which approach to use depends on whether you use a persistent or non-persistent setup and the associated functionality needs of your organization.

For a dedicated persistent setup, both per-machine and per-user installation will work. However, for a non-persistent setup, Teams requires a per-machine installation in order to work efficiently. See the Non-persistent setup section.

With per-machine installation, automatic updates are disabled. This means that to update the Teams app, you must uninstall the current version to update to a newer version. With per-user installation, automatic updates are enabled. Keep the Teams desktop app in your VDI environment up to date. Teams desktop app versions with release dates that are more than 90 days older than the current version’s release date aren’t supported. Unsupported Teams desktop app versions show a blocking page to users and request that they update their app.

For most VDI deployments, we recommend you deploy Teams using per-machine installation. It may be coincidental but the VHD file size seems to have dropped with this new version too. So in summary we have a solution working in our test environment but lots of work to gear up for production. I think I wrote a blog post about removing them using AppSense once, and I think ControlUp has a feature that can do it also. Thanks for this, James! Is that correct? What else could force it to start?

Does anyone know if the single video feed in Teams meetings over Citrix is something we can change? Ive been tearing my hair out with Teams machine wide on wvd multi session windows 10 20h2. I have all of the pre-reqs installed webRTC and the recommended registry keys provided by microsoft IsWVDEnvironment but no Dice, if anyone has any suggestions that would be great!

Also the TeamsPresenceAddin in emtpy. Have you seen this before? If you know a reason for this, please share. Not that I have noticed — however every time I install Teams I make sure to fully install the older version first. Have the same problem after upgrading from Teams v1.

Did you find a fix in the end? James, thanks for the great write up. Cisco Webex for all of our meetings. But sometimes users will receive meeting requests with MS Teams links. So we need to support MS Teams as well.

Is there an subset of instructions to install the teams components server side and client side for meeting participants in our scenario? If you need to install the full client, you can either let the users install the user version provided you have a profile management solution , or install the Machine-Wide Installer. Our users mostly use a Desktop session on our Citrix Farm.

If they get a meeting request, just let them install the web client in their session. But I do want the camera and mic to be optimized and pushed out to their endpoint. Is the web client installed in the user profile in Citrix smart enough to push the optimized video and audio out to an endpoint? Hmmm, if you want optimization in the web client, you will need to use Browser Content Redirection, which is not ideal.

Hello James, thanks for your informative article. I have installed teams on my terminal servers with this. Additionally I delete the SquirrelLogFile and then try the installation as described. I have already tried to install two different team versions, the error occurs with both.

Antivirus software is disabled during installation. Do you have any suggestion for me? I have compared the permissions with other folders, they are the same. Only the owner differs for some folders. Who is the owner on your Teams folder? No unfortunately not. I changed ownership to Administrators — same result. I also added authenticated users and gave them full rights, still the same error: System. Teams msi log gives a ….

Holger, I had the same issue. I think it might be due to the fact I installed my apps from a hidden network share, but could be wrong. Microsoft recommends to install Teams as a per-machine install in non-persistent setups.

The per-user install can be installed in a few different ways. Both the EXE installer and MSI installer can be downloaded in either bit or bit, make sure to get to one matching the Windows architecture.

So, as you can there are 3 different ways of deploying Microsoft Teams as a per-user install, a bit of a mess if you ask me and I am not surprised if some finds it a bit confusing.

The Teams. The installation is triggered by Teams. So a plain old registry value in Run is used to kick off Teams, not necessarily the best way to start an app in a non-persistent shared environment, but then again this is the per-user install of Teams, which is meant to be installed on a physical Windows 10 machine, not a shared environment.
