I can receive sound when I visit youtube or skype but I can't get any sound on my ringcentral desktop app. I've purchased a new mic and new headset and I still can't hear voicemail and no sound for calls.
What kind of headset/mic are you using? Does a different headset/mic work just fine with the softphone? Have you tried using your headset/mic on a different computer that is also running the softphone?
To those who has Window 10 and no longer getting sound on your RingCentral DeskTop App after the most recent Window Update EX: Cannot hear sound from voicemail or sound of someone's voice. This is the solution for you!!! YES!!! This has been an EXTREMELY brutal, painful, frustrated, and COSTLY experience and yet Microsoft failed to inform its customers.
I've follow the first instructions and it has fixed the problem.
1.1. Windows Key+I > Privacy > Microphone
- For quicker and less confusing process just search "microphone privacy settings" in WIndow 10 and the setting menu will appear.
1.2. Set Allow access to the Microphone on this device to ON
1.3. Allow apps to access your microphone - Switch to ON
- Very important - You may not see RingCentral app on the list so just make sure you Switch to ON (1.2). You would still be able to turn off the apps you don't need.
1.4. Choose which apps can access your Microphone - If needed make required toON.
- You may not see ring central app under the list but as long has you've completed Step 1.2 then you would be able to hear the sound again.
1.5. Restart system
To Ring Central IT management team, I highly recommend you to inform all front line IT Support Team and make sure they are aware of the situation and solution as well to ensure all Customers have the best experience. Please note, if your IT staff is not inform then they would follow the standard procedure to solve the problem...1) your IT person could spend over a hour for each call and still not sure what the problem is 2) Customers would become EVEN MORE frustrated. 3) Just inform the entire IT team and help the customers for the sake of the customers by putting ego aside... you don't know what the problem is just admit it and work on the solutions.
It's been a long painful process but I am glad this is working now. Good luck to you all and have an awesome rest of your year and I hope I won't have to come back to this "community" any time soon.
