Microsoft updates Remote Desktop for Android with multi-session support for launching RDP files & handler links.

Remotely access files on your Windows PC from an Android device is possible thanks to Microsoft Remote Desktop app. It is free for download in the Play store and Microsoft keeps updating the app quite regularly, listening to users feedback. The latest update, released on May 8, addresses some important issues brought to Microsoft's attention through its feedback channel. 

The update brings the app version to 8.1.12 and includes the following:

  • New: Multi-session support for launching RDP files or RDP protocol handler links.
  • Fixed: Connection issues that caused errors 0x107 and 0x207.
  • Fixed: Connection issues where the certificate dialog kept reappearing.
If you have have not tried Remote Desktop yet, get it free in the Play store and you can connect to your PC and your work from almost anywhere. The description in the store states that Windows Professional and Windows Server edition are supported. However, I recommend you check the Remote Desktop Client on Android FAQ to get a full list of supported Windows versions. The FAQ also provides how-tos as well to get you started.
