Citrix has added its name to the slowly growing list of major players to support the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) with an update to its Citrix Receiver app. The app was recently updated to support the UWP platform on Windows 10 across PC, Mobile and HoloLens.
Citrix Receiver isn't so much geared towards the consumer crowd, but it is an important piece of the puzzle for businesses that need access to virtual desktop and enterprise apps on the go. Here's a look at some of its features:
- Secure access to virtual desktops and enterprise apps
- Work anywhere on your Windows device
- Account configuration using your email address, a server URL, or a provisioning file
- Use of multiple published apps at a time
Citrix Receiver is, of course, still available for Windows Phone 8 and 8.1 as well, but those working from Windows 10 PC or Mobile will receive the updated UWP version when downloading the app from the store. Based on its listing, this update look to have started rolling out a few days ago, so you may already have it if you use the app regularly. Otherwise, you can grab the UWP Citrix Receiver from the Store now.
