5. Launch Lifesize Cloud for Desktop > Go to Invite and click "Invite" and choose the option "Email and Invitation" and it should redirect to your Google Mail account in Chrome.

 

 

What if, I don't see the Protocol Handler as displayed in the first screen:

 

If you were unable to see the Protocol Handler icon overlapping-diamonds, click the Chrome menu icon chrome-menu-1 in the top right corner of your browser, and choose "Settings."

 

chrome-menu-dropdown-settings

 

Click the "Show Advanced Settings" link at the bottom of the screen. Then click the "Content Settings" button under the "Privacy" header.

 

privacy-settings

 

In the pop-up window, scroll down to the "Handlers" section and click the "Manage Handlers" button. Then select Gmail from the mailto dropdown, click

 

manage-handlers

 

And Now try again.
