    Hello @Alvaro Vinicius ,

    Thanks for the question! We are investigating and will update you shortly.

    Another method of connection to azure VM is Bastion. Azure Bastion is a service you deploy that lets you connect to a virtual machine using your browser and the Azure portal. It creates an RDP like connection to your Windows VMs located in an Azure virtual network directly through the Azure portal. When you use Azure Bastion, your VMs don't require a client, agent, or additional software.

    References :

    Alternative methods :
    You can use Azure Cloud Shell to work with any WM using the command line (bash for Linux VMs and PowerShell for Windows WMs)
    You can find common info about Azure Cloud Shell usage here: Overview of Azure Cloud Shell
    Connection flow for Windows WMs here: Interactively log on to a remote VM

    If you are looking for an App for administrative and managing purpose, we have azure mobile app
    You could also look at this third party article describing in detail on how you can leverage different mobile apps for managing resources here

    No, only RDP (unless you install a third part software (vnc (with firewall rule), anydesk, team viewer, etc..).

    Your feedback is one of the most upvoted's one on azure feedback portal. People tend to ask for console access, but this would need an APP like you requested, as in RDP you can't have the console.

    You can go there to upvote it; Virtual machine console access

    I posted the post as you see the answer MS's told.
