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."




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




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




And Now try again.
