Today, Amazon AppStream 2.0 announced dynamic app framework APIs. Using these APIs, you can dynamically build application catalogs for your users from a single AppStream 2.0 application image, or deliver virtualized apps from a third party solution. This reduces the number of application images you need to maintain, because you no longer need to create an image, stack, and fleet for each user group.

You can build your own solution using these APIs, or leverage a third party dynamic app provider. The apps managed by a dynamic app provider can either be installed on an AppStream 2.0 image, or be delivered off-instance from a Windows file share or application virtualization service.

To build your own solution, or find third party dynamic app providers, see Manage App Entitlement with the Dynamic App Framework. The dynamic app framework APIs are available today at 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.
