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 the 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 log in 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 click this camera icon you should see the following:


To fix this:

  • Change to: Always allow and click: Done
  • You must then refresh your browser by clicking “Reload”. In some cases, you may also need to log out of Talkdesk and close the browser (all windows) and then re-open.
