Genesys Cloud system requirements

        The system requirements detail the browsers, operating systems, hardware, and other components supported by Genesys Cloud.

        • 64-bit operating system
        • 4 GB RAM minimum (8 GB RAM recommended)
        • Dual-core processor
        • 400 MB hard drive space (required to install the desktop app)
        • For the desktop app, one of the following operating systems:
          • Mac OS — two versions previous to the current release
          • Windows— 7, 8, and 10
        • For the web app: Any desktop operating system that meets the other system requirements and can install a supported web browser, such as Linux and Chrome OS.

        Additional requirements

        • JavaScript must be enabled
        • Minimum screen resolution: 1024 x 768

        • Genesys recommends against multiple simultaneous logins to the same Genesys Cloud account. For example, the same account logged in to multiple tabs or browsers, the same account logged in to the desktop app and in a browser, or the same account logged in to different computers at the same time. For more information, see the FAQ Why do multiple concurrent Genesys Cloud logins cause problems?
        • Genesys recommends that PCs exceed the minimum system requirements when WebRTC voice, video, or third-party, resource-intensive software is used. For example, third-party applications can be more resource-intensive than Genesys Cloud. Since the type and number of additional applications in any machine is different, Genesys cannot provide specific guidance. The best approach is experimentation with the desired agent configuration to ensure that the machine has enough CPU, memory, and networking to support all applications comfortably.
        • Genesys recommends that each Genesys Cloud-enabled device or computer includes antimalware protection. For more information, see Malware and antispam protection best practices.
        • Some antivirus software runs real-time inspection on HTTPS and audio packets, and may lower the audio quality of WebRTC.
        • For Genesys Cloud embedded clients, the minimum system requirements are based on the host or browser running the client, and vary based on the implementation. For more information, see Browser requirements for the Genesys Cloud embedded clients.

        Genesys Cloud telephony

        For best results, Genesys recommends that customers using VDI have a telephony configuration using either physical phones or WebRTC phones along with the WebRTC Media Helper. For more information, see About WebRTC Media Helper

        Desktop Physical phone WebRTC phone
        Virtual Desktop Yes Yes*
        Physical Desktop Yes Yes

        *With WebRTC Media Helper

        Genesys Cloud screen recording

        Genesys Cloud’s screen recording technology can work in a VDI environment with the proper VDI configuration. Therefore, successful use of screen recording requires tuning and additional testing at scale by your VDI vendor.

        A separate solution for boosting the performance of screen recording in VDI is planned for a future release.

Under certain rare circumstances, Genesys may skip a Chromium version update due if unresolvable issues are discovered in that version.

              Video chat is supported in the desktop and browser apps but has additional requirements and specifications. 

              Supported browsers

              • Chrome
              • Firefox

              Network bandwidth

              We recommend the following bandwidth for each quality setting:

              • High Definition (HD): 1mbps – 2mbps per connected user in the video chat
              • Medium Definition: 500kbps – 1mbps per connected user in the video chat
              • Low Definition: 100kbps – 500kbps per connected user in the video chat
              • Voice only (camera off) : 32kbps – 150kbps per connected user in the video chat

              Video chat specifications

              • Five maximum participants
              • Browser app: a camera that is a recognized video device by your browser

              Screen sharing specifications

              Screen sharing enables Genesys Cloud users to share a screen, a specific window, or the entire desktop in Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge Chromium, and the desktop app.

              The recommended minimum screen resolution for workforce management user interfaces is 1366 x 768. Even though workforce management administrator user interfaces (forecast editor, schedule editor, intraday monitoring, etc.) can function at 1024 x 768, they are optimized for 1366 x 768.

              • Due to language model size, when you enable the Japanese language, then Genesys Cloud allows English as the only other language in the organization. To request Japanese language support for your organization, contact Genesys Cloud Customer Care.
              • Support for Thai is limited and under active translation, but will be generally available in a future release.
              • For more information about enabling beta languages, contact Customer Care.
              • The following transcript languages are currently supported for Speech and Text Analytics Content Search: EN-US, EN-GB, EN-AU, EN-ZA, EN-IN, ES-US. For more information, see Content Search view.
              • Genesys Dialog Engine only supports en-US. Genesys Dialog Engine Bot Flow support appears in the table above.

              Keep in mind the following:

              • Genesys Cloud's IVR system audio files are contained in a library of provided prompts that you can use "out of the box" or updated by the flow author. These prompts cover standard sets of data, including dates, monetary, numbers, ordinals, and some phrases used by features for error handling (speech recognition errors). 
              • Analytics and keyword spotting are not currently available in Genesys Cloud.

              Sublocale support

              Genesys Cloud supports specific dialects with ASR and TTS for spoken words. However for written words, all varieties of a specified language, such as US and British English, use the same UI localization. Currently, the default standard is the US format (for example, DD/MM/YYYY and 12-hour clock), but future releases will include support for various date-time formats and "start of week" settings applicable to various subregions.
