What’s new in 24.5.0

Support for authentication using FIDO2 when connecting to a cloud store

Starting with the 24.5.0 version, users can authenticate to Citrix Workspace app using FIDO2-based password‑less authentication when connecting to a cloud store. FIDO2 offers a seamless authentication method, allowing enterprise employees to access apps and desktops within virtual sessions without the need to enter user name or password. This feature supports both roaming (USB only) and platform authenticators (PIN code, Face recognition, and Fingerprint only). This feature is compatible with Android version 9 and later.

FIDO2 authentication is supported with the Chrome custom tabs. If you are interested to use FIDO2 authentication with WebView, register your interest using the Podio form.


This feature is enabled by default.

Document scanner

If you’re signed into Citrix Workspace app, you can use the document scanner feature to scan many documents and transfer those scanned documents to the virtual desktop session.


  • This feature is enabled by default.


  • Client drive mapping (CDM) must be enabled for the store.
  • Document scanner requires read and write access on your device. To enable access, follow these steps:
    1. From your profile, tap application Settings > Store settings.
    2. Tap your current store.
    3. Tap Device Storage and then select Full access.

For more information about how to use this feature, see Document scanner in the help documentation.
