Download the Webex Teams App

If someone invited you to Webex Teams, you should have received a welcome email with instructions.

Otherwise, you can download the app and set up an account on your own.

The Webex Teams app is simple. You'll see navigation on the left, then search, filters, and spaces, and activities on the right.
