Microphone and camera access Feature preview

With this release, you can access your microphone and camera for audio-video conferencing through a VDA session. Citrix Workspace app requires your permission to access microphone or camera which can be provided by navigating to Settings on your device and enabling camera or microphone.

Also, per-store microphone and camera access as a part of the client-selective trust security feature has been included to allow Citrix Workspace app to trust access from a VDA session. Citrix Workspace app requires permission to access the microphone or camera. You can configure the access levels by navigating to Settings > Store Settings. In the Store Settings menu, select a store to enable the required microphone or camera access. The selected setting for microphone or camera access is applied on a per-store basis.

This feature has the following known issues:

  • There is a slight lag in audio when both microphone and camera are turned on in a video conference call. [RFIOS-8053]
  • Audio echoes or breaks when multiple people speak over a video conference call. [RFIOS-8054]
  • The microphone stops working intermittently, during a video conference call, despite being enabled. This issue occurs with VDAs running on Windows Server 2019. [RFIOS-8068]
  • If the microphone permission is disabled, and you start a video conference call and enable the microphone when prompted, the microphone does not work. [RFIOS-8079]
  • The dialog box requesting access to the camera appears when you open apps that don’t use the camera. This issue occurs when you have disabled the camera in the Store Settings screen. [RFIOS-8082]
