Requirements and Restrictions

  • Integration with G Suite works only in Chrome. Other browsers are currently not supported.
  • Integration with G Suite only works with enterprise Google accounts. Personal Google accounts are not supported.
  • Outbound calls using the integration are two-legged calls. When initiating an outbound call from the integration, your 8x8 phone service will first call your logged-in phone extension. You must answer that call on your desk phone, or from the Virtual Office Desktop, or from Virtual Office Mobile app. Your call will then dial out to the desired destination.
  • Chromebook users cannot install the 8x8 Work for Desktop app, and therefore cannot use the G Suite integration.
  • Real-time presence is limited to contacts from the Google directory. The presence status of contacts from the 8x8 contact directory is currently not supported.
