You 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 Windows client machine, instead of in the virtual desktop, during Skype audio and video calls.

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

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.
