I like the Windows desktop app for RingCentral, but it includes the SoftPhone app, which seems to use a lot of memory resources on my PC.  Can the product be made available with or without the SoftPhone feature, at the choice of the user?

Hi Thomas,

The Windows desktop app for RingCentral is called the SoftPhone app, which has multiple features including Fax capability. I don't think that you can install the app with just the Fax feature. You can build your own Fax application using RingCentral platform though.

If you would like to have a thinner desktop app, we now have the Web Widget which can be used to make an embedded webphone or a softphone desktop app (using Electron). You can find more information on this here:


In addition to the entire widget, we offer a library of React Components as well for more customization:


This is in beta and doesn't have all the features of the RingCentral for Desktop softphone app yet but we're actively developing it now.
