Thanks for your post Evan.   We can understand the convenience a web based app could provide.  
If it helps, a possible work around is to use the Google Chrome extension for the softphone as it integrates with Google Hangouts for video conferencing.  But, of course you would all need Google accounts to make use of it.

I hope that helps.

Mike,

I appreciate the quick response, however your proposed work around of using google hangouts for video conferencing seems impolitic at best.  Your solution requires the use of a third party for video conferencing services and requires attendees to log into and utilize a google account.  This proposal seems to be the antithesis of an easy to install (and use) web based RingCentral Meetings client that I requested.

I understand that requests such as a web based Meetings client can not be created out of thin air, and do require significant effort to produce.  I just hope that someone on the development team will champion this cause because the feature is GREATLY needed.

I agree and hope to see this in the future.  Yes you are correct it of course takes time to create new functionality such as this. We encourage all Community users to click the Vote button at the top of this page to show support for the idea.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled RC Meetings: Provide a web-based client for attendees.

Big missing component: a web-based client for attendees. Some folks can't install the software due to enforced corp policies. @ringcentral
