Hi Jamie,

Cute cartoon!

This is a feature that other users have requested. I've added your request to theirs.

Community - Please +1 this post to get a softphone for these platforms.

Thanks. :)

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Integrate Linux and Desktop app.

Make Desktop app for Linux Versions.  Microsoft is ok, but with the new Windows 10 captureing all of your data, I work for Medical Offices and we cannot have this option and will nto go down this road.  I use Linux now with an VBOX of Windows 7, but the direction Apple and Microsoft is going they are captureing all data, including passwords, and sending back to their servers, their security is always getting breached, if they do not have it then they cannot lose it, Seems like Linux OS seems to be the safest way to protect my data and the data of my clients

In the interest of having a Linux-compatible (and possibly windows/macos compatible) version of a RC Desktop....

Would anyone be interested in being active development contributors to an open source RingCentral desktop app which could be built using:

- Electron:
- Node.js:
- RingCentral JS SDK:
- MV* Framework of choice for group: Backbone, Angular, React, Knockout, Ember, etc...

If you are interested in this please reply to this comment, and if we have 2-3 serious developers, then I will get the ball rolling on this promptly. Hoping we can get some interest on would be fun to have a community-powered desktop app for RC!

Was a developer ever available to look into this, even if just for a time estimate?

This will make a whole bunch of RingCentral/linux users very happy. You've done a very good thing.
