As an administrator, you can publish Chrome as a virtual application so that users in your organization can use Chrome on any device.
To use Chrome on Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops (previously XenApp and XenDesktop), you'll need:
- Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops
- Microsoft Windows Server
With Chrome 58 and later, Chrome automatically detects if it’s running in a remote desktop environment and adjusts its settings accordingly. If you’re using Chrome 57 or earlier, first you must change the Chrome settings in the Citrix AppCenter Console.
