Amazon AppStream 2.0 enables UDP streaming for Windows native client

Starting today, Amazon AppStream 2.0 introduces support for streaming over UDP, when using the Windows native client. Amazon AppStream 2.0 is a fully managed service that provides non-persistent desktops, and application streaming products to end-users. Previously, you were able to stream over TCP via Windows native client. With your end users now working from home or in different countries compared to your corporate offices, they may operate in sub-optimal network conditions you are unable to control. These network conditions can impact your end users experience and productivity. With UDP streaming your end users will experience a more responsive streaming quality in sub-optimal network conditions, with higher round trip latency.
