Browser: Google Chrome
Talkdesk works completely in the browser. Making sure the browser is up to date and properly configured is key to an optimal Talkdesk use.
Make sure you have the latest version of Google Chrome (we recommend Chrome for best experience and call quality as the WebRTC support is more mature than in Firefox, which is the second best option). Here is a link to check if you have the latest Google Chrome version.
Please do the following to ensure that your agent's permissions are enabled properly:
- When you first login to Talkdesk you must click Allow to the below prompt:
- If you clicked Block, don't worry! You will see a red “X” over a video camera icon in your URL bar. This means Talkdesk doesn't have permission to access your microphone. If you hover over this icon you should see the following:
To fix this:

- Change to: Always allow yourcompanyname.talkdeskid.com and click: Done
- You must then refresh your browser and click "Reload". In some cases you may also need to logout of Talkdesk and close the browser (all windows) and then re-open.
