How can we improve Azure Virtual Machines?

USB devices are not supported in Azure VMs

USB devices, like flash drives or hardware security dongles, would be useful to have present in the remote VMs. For example, support for dongle-controlled security for applications would then be possible.

    I'm developing under Android Studio (for android Apps) and I cannot debug my APKs because I cannot connect a phisical device (is not visible in the VM). Is there a way to do this or it's impossible under this platform?

    Regards

    I think it can be merged with other tickets. For me this is a true issue. I wanted to use a virtual machines on Azure to debug an Android app on a Virtual Machine via Android Studio. But this prevents me.
