change image base AVD

Hello everyone, I am going to make a general change to all the virtual machines, since we have a new gold image with updates of new applications, however the process we have is to delete all the virtual machines and recreate them with this new image, Is there any other way to change the image, without deleting the virtual machines?

    Hello, @Juan Pablo Delgadillo Martinez !

    I've created a new gold image with updates for AVD. Can I change the existing images without deleting the VMs?
    For now, you are following the correct approach by deleting the virtual machines and recreating them with the new image. As an alternative to manually deploying the VMs, some people automate the deployment using a DevOps Pipeline. In the near future there will be a preview of host pool image update service that will perform the swap of the images for you to make things easier.
