With the Real-Time Audio-Video feature, you can use the client device's built-in cameras and microphones in a remote desktop. Real-Time Audio-Video is compatible with standard conferencing applications such as Skype, WebEx, and Google Hangouts.

Real-Time Audio-Video is enabled by default when you install Horizon Client on the client device.

For information about setting up the Real-Time Audio-Video feature on a remote desktop, see the Configuring Remote Desktop Features in Horizon 7 document.

When you install Horizon Client on an Android 6 or later device, Horizon Client prompts you for permission to access the camera and microphone. You must grant permission for the camera and microphone to work with the remote desktop. You can enable or disable access to the camera or microphone in the Android Settings app. For Android devices earlier than Android 6, permission to the camera and microphone is opened by default.

If the camera is currently being used by another app, it cannot be used by the remote desktop simultaneously. Also, if the camera is being used by the remote desktop, it cannot be used by the client device at the same time.

If the client device has both a front and a back camera, you can select which camera to use in the remote desktop. If you are using a remote desktop in full-screen mode, tap the Horizon Client Tools radial menu icon, tap the gear icon, tap Camera, tap Select a camera, and tap the camera to use. If you are not using full-screen mode, Settings is in the menu in the upper-right corner of the Horizon Client toolbar. The Camera setting is available only when the camera is started.
