Horizon Client for Mac provides a familiar, personalized desktop and application environment. End users can access USB and other devices connected to their local computer, send documents to any printer that their local computer can detect, authenticate with smart cards, and use multiple display monitors.
Feature Support Matrix for Mac Clients When planning which display protocol and features to make available to your end users, use the following information to determine which guest operating systems support the feature.
Internationalization The user interface and documentation are available in English, Japanese, French, German, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Korean, and Spanish.
Keyboard Input Source Language Synchronization When you connect to a remote desktop, the keyboard input source language on the Mac client system is synchronized in the remote desktop.
Monitors and Screen Resolution When you use the VMware Blast display protocol or the PCoIP display protocol, you can extend a remote desktop to multiple monitors. If you have a Mac with Retina Display, you can see the remote desktop in full resolution.
Use USB Redirection to Connect USB Devices With the USB redirection feature, you can use locally attached USB devices, such as thumb flash drives, in a remote desktop or published application.
Using the Real-Time Audio-Video Feature for Webcams and Microphones With the Real-Time Audio-Video feature, you can use the local client system's webcam or microphone in a remote desktop or published application. Real-Time Audio-Video is compatible with standard conferencing applications and browser-based video applications. It supports standard webcams, audio USB devices, and analog audio input.
Using the Session Collaboration Feature You can use the Session Collaboration feature to invite other users to join an existing remote desktop session.
Copying and Pasting By default, you can copy and paste from the local client system to a remote desktop or published application. You can also copy and paste from a remote desktop or published application to the client system, or between two remote desktops or published applications, if a Horizon administrator enables these features.
Dragging Text and Images You can drag text and images from the Mac client to an open application in a remote desktop.
Using Published Applications You can use many Mac functions with published applications.
Saving Documents in a Published Application With certain published applications, such as Microsoft Word or WordPad, you can create and save documents. Where these documents are saved depends on your company's network environment. For example, your documents might be saved to a home share mounted on your local computer.
Using a Touch Bar with Remote Desktops and Published Applications You can use a Touch Bar to interact with remote desktops and published applications. This feature requires macOS Sierra (10.12) or later.
Printing from a Remote Desktop or Published Application You can print to a virtual printer or a USB printer that is attached to the local client computer from a remote desktop or published application. Virtual printing and USB printing work together without conflict.
PCoIP Client-Side Image Cache PCoIP client-side image caching stores image content on the client to avoid retransmitting data. This feature reduces bandwidth use.
