Citrix Workspace app replaces the Citrix Receiver

Citrix has replaced the Citrix Receiver with the Citrix Workspace app. In most cases, the Workspace app is backward-compatible, and should not require additional maintenance. If auto-update is enabled on your device, the app should update automatically. You'll notice a blue Citrix icon in your system tray or App Store representing the Workspace app.

You can download the latest version of the Workspace app at

For a list of the latest Workspace app downloads, see Citrix Workspace app downloads.

To learn more about the end-of-maintenance and end-of-life dates for previous receivers, see Lifecycle Milestones for Citrix Workspace app & Citrix Receiver.
