NEWS! New Fuze Desktop Application for PC and Mac Users - August 2015

The Fuze applications for Windows and Mac computers now have a cleaner, more intuitive user interface available. The simplified look and more intuitive placement of meeting controls makes it easier to find important meeting controls like Share, Mute, Turn Off/On Video, Switch Audio, and Add Participants. The buttons for Meeting Notes and Chat are now easier to locate as well.

Fuze also introduced a More Menu to help consolidate in-meeting controls (ie. Mute All, Hide Participants, Record Meeting, etc.), making more room for video pods and shared content. Please click for an overview of the new Fuze in-meeting experience.

How to Install the Fuze Client

For your SLU-managed Windows PC:

  • Please request the Fuze client installation from your IT Service Desk, since the installation now requires administrator rights on the computer.
  • Please note: The New Fuze for Windows client requires the Microsoft .NET 4.5 Framework to be installed on your computer. Some other SLU systems require an older version of the .NET Framework, such as IDX, so the Fuze client should not be installed these computers.

For your personal computer, phone, or tablet:

  • Visit the Fuze Download page at to install the currently available Fuze client, or app, for your device.
