Amazon AppStream 2.0 Now Lets You Use Microphones with Your Streaming Applications

Posted on: Aug 4, 2017

Amazon AppStream 2.0 now allows you to use microphones and other audio input devices with your streamed applications. With this capability, you can use popular collaboration applications, call center solutions, and tools used to record voiceovers, such as video editing software with AppStream 2.0. Since your applications are streamed to an HTML5 browser, your users can now access these solutions from Windows PCs, Mac OS devices, and Linux-based desktops.

AppStream 2.0 supports analog and USB microphones, including built-in microphones. You can also use other audio input devices such as mixing consoles, digital music players, or analog-to-digital transfer devices. To use a microphone with your streamed applications, simply click Enable Microphone from the AppStream 2.0 toolbar.

This feature is available in all AWS Regions where AppStream 2.0 is offered. If you are new to AppStream 2.0, you can try already-installed applications by visiting the AppStream 2.0 website.
