Citrix Workspace App Technology Preview for macOS

Release Date: May 26, 2021

What's new in 2106

  • Support for high DPI (Retina) displays 

Citrix Workspace app for Mac now supports high DPI (Retina) displays for desktop sessions. 


High DPI is available only for monitors with a screen size of 16 inches or smaller.

High DPI is available only for sessions with a single Retina display. When an another display is detected in the monitor layout, Citrix Workspace app for Mac falls back to non-high DPI mode.

High DPI is available only for desktop sessions. Seamless sessions (app sessions) are not supported.

High DPI is not available in multiple-monitor mode. 

Performance impact

VDA CPU usage might increase. To handle this, increase your RAM size and use a 3D Pro VDA.

CPU usage might increase on the macOS without affecting your typical Workspace actions.

  • Support for customized URLs through 301 redirects

Citrix Workspace app now allows you to add URLs that redirect to Citrix Workspace from StoreFront or Citrix Gateway through HTTP 301 redirects.

If you’re migrating from StoreFront to Citrix Workspace, you can redirect the StoreFront URL to a Citrix Workspace URL through an HTTP 301 redirect. As a result, when adding an old StoreFront URL, you’re automatically redirected to Citrix Workspace.

Example of a redirect:

The StoreFront URL: https://< Citrix Storefront url>/Citrix/Roaming/Accounts can be redirected to a Citrix Workspace URL: https://<Citrix Workspace url>/Citrix/Roaming/Accounts.

Note: Citrix Workspace app for Mac does not support Dual Tone Multi Frequency (DTMF) with Microsoft Teams pending changes from Microsoft.
