- In-line email forwarding.
- Voice Enhancements
- Remote agent phone number support: For deployments that require Configuration Server proxy, it is now possible for remote agents, such as those working from home, to enter their phone number to receive calls. This feature was previously possible only if Configuration Server proxy was not required. This feature requires SIP Server 18.104.22.168 or higher.
- Nailed up connection establishment on first call: Nailed up connection enables remote agents to answer and hang-up each call without using a physical phone. With nailed up connection establishment on the first call after login, agents are only required to answer the first call using the physical phone. They do not need to hang-up after each call to receive the next one. To set up Nailed Up calls, refer to the SIP Server documentation .
- Caller ID display name: When an agent selects the caller ID for outgoing calls, Workspace passes both the descriptive name and the phone number to be displayed to the call recipient.

This release contains the following resolved issues:
Workspace Web Edition
Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 no longer becomes unresponsive while an agent is handling a voice interaction if Genesys Softphone is being used as a SIP Endpoint and Workspace Web Edition is configured to enable agents to control the speaker and microphone volumes. (HTCC-28659)
Service Client API subscription to events now works with integration at the interaction level in background mode. Previously in this scenario, events occurred only for the first interaction. (HTCC-28513)
Workspace now correctly reconnects to Genesys Softphone if Genesys Softphone is stopped and restarted while an agent is logged in. (HTCC-28290)
Genesys Softphone is now correctly unregistered in Disaster Recovery environments when an agent logs out. Previously, agents were prevented from logging in to a different Place after logging out in scenarios where both the Preferred SIP Server and Peer SIP Server were down at initial login. (HTCC-28242)
You no longer have to disable loopback to use Microsoft Edge for Windows 10 with Genesys Softphone and Genesys Interaction Recording (GIR) Screen Recorder. (HTCC-28236)
The interaction duration timer that is displayed in the toolbar of chat interactions now starts when the interaction is accepted by an agent. Previously, the timer started when the interaction entered the queue. (HTCC-27707)
Web Services API
Earlier the process for ending contact center session could call the request for agent logout on sip-server in spite of the agent already has LoggedOut state. Double logout on sip server is avoided after the fix. (HTCC-28023)
Previously GWS response contains an error/warning message that may disclose sensitive information. (HTCC-25263)
No special procedure is required to upgrade to release 8.5.202.04.
