Citrix Workspace App 2112 for Chrome OS - Tech Preview

Release Date: Nov 30, 2021

What’s new in 2112

Support for dynamic e911

With this release, Citrix Workspace app supports dynamic emergency calling. When used in Microsoft Calling Plans, Operator Connect, and Direct Routing, it provides the capability to:

  • configure and route emergency calls 
  • notify security personnel

The notification is provided based on the current location of the Citrix Workspace app running on the endpoint, instead of the Microsoft Teams client running on the VDA.

Ray Baum's law requires the 911 caller's dispatchable location to be transmitted to the appropriate Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP). Starting from Citrix Workspace app 2112 for Chrome OS, Microsoft Teams Optimization with HDX is compliant with Ray Baum's law.

Fixed issues in 2112

  • When you connect to a primary external monitor and launch a desktop or app session, Microsoft Teams video or screen sharing may go blank.  The issue occurs when you are in multi-monitor mode and move the Teams window from the external monitor to the built-in display that is set as a secondary monitor.
  • When you launch sessions in a multi-monitor environment, the mouse clicks are misaligned by a few pixels. The issue occurs when the Chrome shelf is positioned on the left. We recommend you position the Chrome shelf at the bottom of the screen. 
  • A few application icons are not visible on the Chrome shelf.  The issue occurs when you enable Settings > General > High DPI Scaling using Citrix Workspace app. 
  • After a fresh install of Citrix Workspace app, the logs for the first session opened are not recorded. All the subsequent session launches are recorded as per the functionality. 

Known issues in 2112

  • When you connect to a primary external monitor and launch a desktop or app session, Microsoft Teams video or screen sharing renders incorrectly.  The issue occurs when you are in multi-monitor mode and move the Teams window from the external monitor to the built-in display that is set as a secondary monitor.

 

How to access the Tech preview app:

  • This app can currently only be accessed via Chrome web store.
  • You need to whitelist the app at Storefront level to test it.

Steps to whitelist app in the storefront:

1. On the StoreFront server, use a text editor to open the web.config file for the Receiver for Web site, which is typically located in the C:\inetpub\wwwroot\Citrix\storenameWeb directory, where storename is the name specified for the store when it was created.

2. Locate the following element in the file. <html5 ... chromeAppOrigins="chrome-extension://haiffjcadagjlijoggckpgfnoeiflnem" ... />

3. Change the value of the chromeAppOrigins attribute to chrome extension://haiffjcadagjlijoggckpgfnoeiflnem|chrome-extension://lbfgjakkeeccemhonnolnmglmfmccaag where lbfgjakkeeccemhonnolnmglmfmccaag– is the appID for the private application. This should whitelist the application in the storefront.

Note: If you are a Citrix Cloud/Workspace platform customer, you do not need to whitelist the app its already whitelisted.
