Windows Integration Component

The Jabra SDK for Windows contains libraries, examples, and documentation to integrate the digital features of Jabra devices into applications on Windows.

The SDK supports two programming environments:

  • C-level managed API for native Windows desktop applications through header files and a library/DLL.
  • C#-level managed API for DotNET applications through an assembly in the form of a DLL.
    • Note that the C# level API implements a smaller, but still covering sub-set of functions of the full C-level API. Please check the DotNET reference guide for further details.

System Requirements

These are the system requirements for running the demo app and the apps built with the libraries.

  • Windows version: 7 (32-bit & 64-bit) or later
  • For C# and demo app: Microsoft .NET framework version 4.5.2 or newer
  • Visual Studio: 2015 or newer
  • Internet connection (for run-time operation)
  • Wired Jabra headset or Jabra Bluetooth headset connected via Jabra Dongle


Make sure the system requirements are met and unzip the SDK archive to a folder on your file system. You can then launch the demo app present in the demo folder to test the connection to an attached Jabra Device.


For detailed information see the changelog.

  • Fixed bug introduced in where getPairingListAsync may return an empty array when using the library from a multi-threaded client.

  • Reintroducing the Call Lock functionality. This functionality ensures that two softphones do not use the same Jabra device at the same time - it does so by controlling access to the call control functionality in the SDK library. Call Lock consists of three API functions:

    • Jabra_GetLock()
    • Jabra_ReleaseLock()
    • Jabra_IsLocked().

    By acquiring a lock beforehand softphones can co-exist without interfering with each other, if acquiring the lock fails another softphone is currently using the device. See more information on the Call Lock page.

  • New APIs for Active Noise Cancellation and hear-through. Hear-through allows the users to get audio from their surroundings in the headset. Look for AmbienceMode.

  • Minor bug fixes.
