To join a collaborative session, a user must have Horizon Client 4.7 or later for Windows, Mac, or Linux installed on the client system, or must use HTML Access 4.7 or later.

Windows remote desktops

  • Horizon Agent 7.4 or later must be installed in the virtual desktop, or on the RDS host for published desktops.

  • The Session Collaboration feature must be enabled at the desktop pool or farm level. For information about enabling the Session Collaboration feature for desktop pools, see the Setting Up Virtual Desktops in Horizon 7 document.
