RingCentral is phasing out the Legacy Softphone in favor of the new RingCentral Desktop App. The new app features Call Monitoring, Head Up Display (HUD), enhanced security and a lot of other exciting features not found in the legacy softphone.

Customers who haven’t upgraded yet to the RingCentral Desktop App and are still using the old softphone will receive a notification to upgrade to the RingCentral Desktop App, when launching the old softphone. Clicking No on the prompt will close the softphone and will prevent the customer from using it.
