About the Genesys Cloud browser extensions


The Genesys Cloud browser extensions are versions of Genesys Cloud’s contact center services in Chrome and Firefox (Genesys Cloud for Chrome and Genesys Cloud for Firefox).

Warning: Do not run different versions of the Genesys Cloud embedded client (Genesys Cloud for Salesforce, Genesys Cloud for Zendesk, Genesys Cloud for Chrome, Genesys Cloud for Firefox, or Genesys Cloud Embeddable Framework) side by side. Otherwise, you will experience unusual behavior with interaction logs, WebRTC phones, and other functionality.
