macOS Universal Application - Apple Silicon M1

Zoom added their Universal Binary which supports their M1 chips without going through their Rosetta 2 emulation.

I believe this would help RingCentral as I occasionally experience application freezes on the M1 when trying to enable my camera / audio too quickly after loading into a meeting or trying to share my screen. I believe natively supporting the M1 would resolve those issues.

    My understanding is that this is coming this quarter. When I have an update on this, I'll be sharing information here.

    Stay tuned.

    Any update on the ETA for a truely native M1 / Apple Silicon binary?

    I'm quite confused as to why this would take this long. It's likely it's just a recompile. Being Zoom had theirs out on December 21st of last year, perhaps we need to move our service to Zoom since they appear to care.

    A major disappointment! No M1 native support until 2H 2021.
    To even post this as an update to the idea “macOS Universal Application - Apple Silicon M1” is close to being a deception.

    Well I guess that means we have to wait until December 2021.

    Sorry for the confusion everyone. I confirmed with product that this is expected behavior. They advised it is still an Intel version working on M1 Chips via emulator. Native M1 support is coming 2H 2021.

    Yeah same here. I thought I did something wrong. I would say more issues as too, audio garbled and a whole screen on my mac went blank when I had the RC window maximized on another screen

    Thank you for providing this information Brandon and Tom, I've looped in engineering so they are aware and looking into this.

    I download 21.1.29 today but it installs an Intel version, see attached screenshot of Activity Monitor.

    I tried downloading the M1 version from the link provided. The app is still showing as running on intel architecture though under activity monitor.

    The RingCentral App now has an M1 download:

    We will wait until late 21 to start to replace systems with arm based macs. If this is not implemented by then we will need to look for another vendor. I've been piloting the M1 and RC struggles on there. Thanks

    Yes, a native M1 Apple silicon app is needed!

    It seems that any business that uses RC and Mac clients will need a native M1 app sooner rather than later since Apple is transitioning all of its systems to Apple Silicon. Assuming RingCentral continues to offer cross-platform compatibility, the question here is when not if. It would be good to have some communication to customers regarding the target timeline for this support so that we can all plan accordingly.

    Native M1 support please.
