Support for Hello discontinued in Firefox 49

Firefox Hello will be discontinued and removed from Firefox when you update to version 49, which was released on September 20, 2016. Hello will be disabled in Firefox versions 45 through 48 shortly thereafter. This will happen automatically -- no extra steps are needed.

Firefox Hello has been discontinued and removed from Firefox starting with version 49. This happened automatically when you updated Firefox -- no extra steps were needed.

Here are a few alternatives to Hello. We hope you’ll find one you’ll like:

  • Talky: Provides both video and screen sharing using WebRTC.
  • Cisco Spark: Create rooms for video calling, group messaging and sharing.
  • Appear.in: Group video calling for up to eight people.
  • Jitsi Meet: Group video calling and screen sharing using WebRTC.

Thank you for supporting the Hello beta. We will continue to develop and improve WebRTC (Web Real-Time Communications), the underlying technology for Hello.

If you need help with any of these alternatives, please contact them directly.
