Your users can now configure their streaming sessions to use regional settings. They can set the time zone, locale, and input method used by their applications in their streaming sessions. Each user's settings persist across all future sessions in the same AWS Region.

When your users launch their streaming sessions, they can select Regional settings from the gear menu on the AppStream 2.0 toolbar to set any of the Time zone, Locale, and Input method options. Any changes a user makes will apply instantly to the user's streaming session as well as to any future sessions launched by the user in the same AWS Region. Your fleet must be configured to use the latest version of the AppStream 2.0 agent and have Windows PowerShell 5.1 installed. If you need to configure your agent and install Windows PowerShell 5.1, follow these instructions: Enable Regional Settings for Amazon AppStream 2.0 users.

Regional settings are available for no additional charge in all AWS Regions where AppStream 2.0 is offered. AppStream 2.0 offers pay-as-you-go pricing. Please see Amazon AppStream 2.0 Pricing for more information, and try our sample applications.
