In the 6.0 version of Thinfinity® Remote Desktop, you will find a completely revamped Web Profile Manager, in which you’ll be able to configure all aspects of your Access Profiles from within the browser itself, one of the newest features is the Bidirectional Audio Redirection.

This feature enables audio and microphone forwarding from your remote RDP desktop to your local computer. This allows Thinfinity to support softphones installed on the remote computer, desktop or web applications that require microphone and audio redirection.  You can even make Teams or Zoom audio calls.
