Update 6 Final is out – with new WebRTC softphone!

The latest V15.5 Update – 6 – has gone gold. And it’s an important one. Not only does it come with many new features & improvements but it also has updated SSL certificates that are required.

Web Based Softphone

New WebRTC based web phone with 3CX V15.5, Update 6

Now you can make phone calls right from your browser without even installing a softphone. Update 6 integrates a WebRTC softphone in the webclient.

As this feature is still in beta, it needs to be enabled from the management console. You can do this from Settings > PBX > General > Enable WebRTC softphone in Web Client. The web client will then have an additional phone option under the phone icon in the top right corner, as shown below.
