My desktop ringcentral app doesn't work well with my Plantronics Voyager Focus UC.
My desktop voip ringcentral app (version 126.96.36.199106) doesn't work well with my Plantronics Voyager Focus UC. The headset works perfectly with the RingCentral for meetings, just not with the desktop app for the phone. I have tried with both the dongle and direct bluetooth connection to my Dell XPS laptop running Win 10 (latest version). The connection with direct bluetooth connection is all staticy or breaks up and my customers complain about it. With the dongle, it is excellent, but the app crashes all the time, and does some crazy stuff. The headset works perfectly with my cell phone and through the meetings app, but not with the voip phone app. RingCentral can't seem to fix this issue and it is bad enough that I am considering changing systems (not headsets). Does anyone have a similar situation and perhaps a fix?
I am having the same issue. Newly-purchased Voyager UC as recommended. All firmware is up-to-date on the Plantronics side. My desktop software says it's up-to-date (version 188.8.131.52675). Any time the Plantronics Hub software is running and connected, the RingCentral software crashes shortly after. Disabling the Hub software allows the RC software to run, but as mentioned by many, it takes away the features of the Plantronics headset.
I have the the same Voyager Focus headset ("pretty much the best money can buy" from what I was told when I bought it) and it worked pretty well with my iphone but when i switched to a droid it got really ugly! Every time i want to use the headset with the RC App on my new phone, the Note9 Samsung, i have to uninstall the RC App and reinstall to pair. It works for a day or so and then i get a call and find my headset is no longer paired. So i call RC Support and the girl tells me i need to uninstall and reinstall the app every time i want to use the headset. Are you kidding me? ? I am so fed up trying to figure this out on my own i need some help or need to find a new VOIP provider. Sounds like they have been having issues with the Best Plantronics headset that is recommended on their website and by their sales reps but its really a let down. PLT support tells me to call RC and RC tells me to contact PLT. I am about done with both of them! Such a let down
