Google has teamed up with Citrix to make batter enterprise Chromebooks

56 sec read

Chromebooks are making inroads into the education sector, and a push is coming for the enterprise with new native Chrome capabilities from Citrix. Google and Citrix have announced Citrix Receiver for Chrome, a native app for the Chromebook which has direct access to the system resources, including printing, audio, and video. To provide the security needed for the enterprise, the new Citrix app assigns a unique Receiver ID to each device for monitoring, seamless Clipboard integration across remote and local applications, end user experience monitoring with HDX Insight, and direct SSL connections.

Google and Citrix today announced the launch of a new version the Citrix Receiver for Chrome that both hope will bring more businesses to Google’s Chrome OS platform. Receiver gives users access to their virtual apps and desktops through XenDesktop and XenApp from their smartphones, tablets, PCs and Macs. After originally launching Receiver for Chrome, the company later transitioned Chromebook users to Receiver for HTML5. At the time, Citrix argued that the HTML5 version offered more features than its standalone Chrome app, but with today’s launch of a more native experience, Chromebook users get access to far more features than the HTML5 version was able to offer. Because Receiver for Chrome can now access more of Chrome OS’s native features directly, users are able to easily use Google Cloud Print, for example. Features like audio and video playback should now also work better. Other features include integration with Chrome OS’s clipboard across remote and local applications, as well as monitoring with HDX Insight and support for direct SSL connections.
