Windows Virtual Desktop with M365 Bussiness premium

Douglas Bowman | Swap-Ict 26 Reputation points


I'm trying to use WVD with my M365 Bussiness Premium but I can't seem to get it activated.
I keeps saying I need a subscription to Azure, but I already own bussiness premium which should include WVD.

Can anyone tell me why I am unable to select a resource (when trying to create a pool for WVD)?

    Hello @Douglas Bowman | Swap-Ict ,

    Thank you for reaching out to Microsoft Q&A platform. Happy to answer your question.

    If you are looking at the below highlighted Azure Virtual Desktop under Microsoft 365 Business Premium plan, it means that you can license your azure virtual desktops using Microsoft 365 Business Premium account, but still you would need an azure subscription seperately in order to create the AVDs. Please refer to Azure Virtual Desktop Overview


    From the AVD document:

    Also take a look at the pricing document of AVD, to understanding the licensing concept combining with Microsoft 365 business here, virtual-desktop
