Accessing a mobile-powered desktop like DeX lets you do a lot more on your phone, and enjoy a desktop-like user experience while using your mobile apps. But it still doesn’t let you run desktop apps that were created for a desktop operating system.
That’s where desktop and application virtualization comes in. Launching VMware Horizon desktops when working within DeX gives you both. You’re now working on a virtual desktop with full desktop apps. You’re viewing content on a full-sized monitor, and using the keyboard and mouse to get work done. And it’s all powered by your Galaxy smartphone. That is the digital workplace, powered by mobile.
Virtual Desktop Access on DeX
Accessing a virtual desktop on Dex is as easy as downloading VMware Workspace ONE, which is available on the Google Play Store. When you log into Workspace ONE using your corporate credentials, you gain access to all your work apps, including virtual apps and desktops. Horizon delivers the virtual apps and desktops seamlessly and works in DeX-mode to enable full-screen virtual Windows desktops or multiple windows simultaneously.
This common digital workspace experience lets end users access their Windows desktop, mobile and corporate back-end applications. All apps and data can be accessed securely from their mobile device with Knox-based security measures.
