Starting today, you can enable the native desktop experience for your Amazon AppStream 2.0 fleets. Previously, AppStream 2.0 streaming sessions only showed the windows of the applications that were launched. With this launch, you can enable Desktop View on your fleet, which provides the same desktop experience your users are used to with the existing non-persistent capabilities AppStream 2.0 provides. You can enable the Desktop View when you create a new fleet, or update a stopped fleet. To get started, see Create a Fleet in the Amazon AppStream 2.0 Administration Guide

You can enable the Desktop View on your fleet resources 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.
