The information from ringcentral had been consistent about all this up to this point: we can still use the non-integrated meeting desktop app for now.
Because when we login to the latest ringcentral meetings standalone program version 21.1.40031.0329, we were getting the message about retirement inside the program, we reached out to RC tech support last month to confirm and received the same consistent information as above.
However, this all changed for us on Friday June 18. When we sign in to the program, we get the usual “We’re retiring this app in X days …”, clicking on Continue to log in, our people are now getting the following and cannot continue. “This app has been retired. We've upgraded this app to the new RingCentral app. To keep hosting and joining meetings, get the new app at ringcentral.com/download.” https://ringcentral.onelink.me/IKAo/
When our organization reach out to RC tech support Tier1 then Tier2, because they can’t seem to figure it out after trying different things and checking settings but still getting the same thing when using our account credential on their end, they are now just saying we need to switch to the unified app because it works in there.
It been frustrating, since we still want to continue to use the separate ringcentral meetings desktop program for the time being. I just want a solid answer. In case there been miscommunication, or the message is inconsistent and confusing…
Has something changed and/or our account been migrated/transitioned/Whatever and we now have to use the RingCentral app to host meeting?
OR should our company still be able to continue with the non-unified ringcentral meetings desktop program?
If it’s the latter, should we file another ticket or talk to our RC account rep?
