SOLVED Alert: VidyoDesktop Join Links with Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge Version 98


UPDATE 2/27/2022 - This issue can be resolved by installing the below patch to the VidyoPortal:


Please install the appropriate file for your VidyoPortal version:

VidyoPortal Version Filename
VidyoPortal 3.4.4 -> 19.1.0 Update_VidyoPortal_1910orbelow-VD-Chrome-Edge-98-Rev07-G2signed.vidyo
VidyoPortal 19.2.0 -> 21.6.0 Update_VidyoPortal-1920orabove-VD-Chrome-Edge-98-Rev07-G2signed.vidyo




We are aware of an issue affecting VidyoDesktop users, where when clicking a room link VidyoDesktop does not automatically join into the conference. This issue occurs when using the following browsers:
• Microsoft Edge 98
• Google Chrome 98

These browsers have implemented stricter restrictions on how browsers communicate with resources outside of the current loaded URL and as a result, the VidyoPortal join page can no longer send messages to the VidyoDesktop application.
We want to assure our VidyoDesktop customers that we are actively working on a resolution. We will provide you with an update as soon as we can.

Products Affected

  • VidyoDesktop with all VidyoPortal versions.


For VidyoDesktop, there is no resolution at the moment, but Enghouse Vidyo is working on potential workarounds to this issue.
NOTE: Registered users can still search for rooms and contacts to join conferences.

What Actions Can I Take Now?

Enghouse Vidyo strongly recommends moving to VidyoConnect Desktop as VidyoConnect is not affected by this issue.
