An end user can run Skype for Business inside a virtual desktop without negatively affecting the virtual infrastructure and overloading the network. All media processing takes place on the client machine, instead of in the virtual desktop, during Skype audio and video calls.

To use this feature, you must install the VMware Virtualization Pack for Skype for Business feature on the client machine during the Horizon Client for Linux installation. For information, see Installation Options .

A Horizon administrator must also install the VMware Virtualization Pack for Skype for Business feature on the virtual desktop during Horizon Agent installation. For information, see the Setting Up Virtual Desktops in Horizon 7 document.

For complete requirements, see the Configuring Remote Desktop Features in Horizon 7 document.
