Change your WebRTC phone settings

Note: This article applies to Genesys Cloud Embeddable Framework, Genesys Cloud for Chrome, Genesys Cloud for Firefox, Genesys Cloud for Salesforce, and Genesys Cloud for Zendesk.

You can change your WebRTC phone settings in the client or in the WebRTC Phone window (Chrome browser users only). How you change WebRTC phone settings and the items that you can change differ depending on the browser and product used and the location of the settings (client or WebRTC Phone window).

  1. Access the settings through the client or the WebRTC Phone window.
    • Client access:
      1. Click Menu  > More .
      2. Click Settings.
      3. Click WebRTC.
    • WebRTC Phone window access:
      1. Click Settings.
  2. In the settings, you can do the following actions:
    • Stop a persistent connection 
    • Select your microphone and speakers for WebRTC phones.
    • Test your speakers.
      Note: If you use the WebRTC Phone window, then test your speakers through Settings on the WebRTC Phone window. For more information, see Browser window for WebRTC phones.
    • Select your speakers for the ringer.

      The Play ringtone on separate device setting is not selected by default. When you select this setting, the setting defaults to your speakers for WebRTC phones.

    • Change the behavior of the WebRTC Phone window (client access only). 

      The Pop WebRTC Phone window setting is selected by default.

      Note: This setting does not appear in products where the setting is configured by default (for example, Sales Cloud in Genesys Cloud for Salesforce and some implementations that use Genesys Cloud Embeddable Framework).

    • Test your settings.
    • Configure advanced microphone settings.
