This feature is supported only with virtual desktops. It is not supported with published desktops and published applications.
If you select a specific speaker and then add or remove a speaker from the client system during a remote session, the changes do not take effect in the remote session. If you select all the available speakers, the devices are updated dynamically during a remote session.
