Meetings

As we continue to deliver a secure meeting join experience, we changed how users join Webex Teams meetings. Now when you call in to a Webex Teams space meeting, you'll need to enter an attendee ID before being allowed to join. Your attendee ID is shown when you choose the Call in audio option in Webex Teams. Without an attendee ID you'll be asked to hold until somebody in the space lets you in, this way you can ensure that only the people who were invited attend.

You don't need to update Webex Teams for this change to take effect. Your Webex Teams meetings will automatically require attendee IDs for those who call in.

We've released an update for Webex Teams on Windows and Mac, see Webex Teams | Release Notes to get information about the issues resolved. The following are the app versions that correspond to today's update.

Now, you'll be able to choose whether to call people using their phone number or using a Webex Teams call. A Webex Teams call is a quick way to call someone else who's using Webex Teams.

We accelerated our monthly update and made it available on March 20, 2020. At that time, we paused automatic updates temporarily for the desktop apps to let people decide whether to update. We're planning to resume the automatic updates this week with an update to the desktop apps that includes some improvements. We just wanted to let you know about this upcoming change, and we'll post again when the update is available.

March 20, 2020

We’re accelerating the availability of this month’s update, and we’re not requiring current users to switch to it right away. Instead, we’re pausing our automatic updates to our desktop apps with this update, and letting you download them directly.

If you're new to remote work, we're here to make the change easy—keeping you connected to your team. As more people are having to adjust to remote work and use collaboration tools, we’re releasing a new design this month that we think makes it easier to use Webex Teams.

If you download today’s update, you’ll get the new design, whether you’re new or experienced with the app. Our team shared some insight about these changes on our blog.

Messaging

New In-Space Design—Windows and Mac

We have designed a new layout for spaces in Webex Teams in an effort to address user feedback, improve the experience of using spaces and make the app truly scalable. Find a detailed overview of these changes, see Webex Teams | New In-Space Design.

Organize your Spaces List—Windows, Mac, iPhone, iPad and Android

For users who haven't yet discovered this convenient way to organize your spaces list, Separate People and Spaces will be on by default. This can easily be reverted by clicking your filters and toggling off the option or by going to your appearance settings. See Webex Teams | Separate Your Chats and Spaces.

Turn off @All Mentions for a Space—Windows and Mac

Hey @all (sorry, but this is important), do you want to prevent people from broadcasting their message to everyone? You got it! We’re adding it to the space information menu for moderated spaces, only moderators can change it. You can only turn it off on desktop, but it's turned off for everyone using Webex Teams on mobile too. See Webex Teams | Turn Off @all Mentions

Add a Custom Status—iPhone, iPad, and Android

We released this on desktop in February and now on mobile you can add a custom status to give your colleagues more context as to why you're late for a meeting, not at your desk when they're looking for you, or simply let them know how you feel today. See Webex Teams | Set a Custom Status.

We have so many features to share with you this month that we're experimenting with organizing by messaging, calling, and meetings features.

Messaging

Pop Out Spaces—Windows and Mac

We all love multi-tasking and pop out spaces will help us do exactly that. You can pop out multiple spaces into new Webex Teams windows. This allows you to focus on those important spaces and conversations without getting distracted by other unread spaces or notifications. This option is available when you right-click a space in your spaces list, or double-click on a space! See Webex Teams | Open Chats and Spaces in Separate Windows.

Links! Get Your Links Here—Windows and Mac

No need to flag important links or make sure that you save them in your browser. We’re collecting them for you, and to find them again, go to and select Links. See Webex Teams | View all Links Shared in a Space.

Peek in a Space—Windows and Mac

Catch up on those unread messages later! When you see you have an unread message in a space, but you know you don't have time to follow up on it right now. Right-click the space and choose Peek in space to view the messages. The space isn't marked as read and no read receipt is sent. However, if you reply then a read receipt is sent but you're still in peek mode. See Webex Teams | Peek into a Space.

Show Previous Space Name when Space Name is changed—Windows and Mac

Now when you rename a space, the previous space name appears in the note in the message area. This helps anyone in the space to see a history of the space name changes. See Update a Space Name and Picture.

Separate People and Spaces with Tabs—Windows and Mac

We're giving you the option to choose how you view your spaces. You can keep spaces all in one list or you can add tabs to organize your spaces. The tabs allow you to view all your spaces, to see a list of spaces with just one person, or to view a list of spaces with groups of people. You'll be able to easily switch between these views using a new preference in the Filters list. See Webex Teams | Separate Your Chats and Spaces.

Preferences in Filters List—Windows and Mac

We're adding some appearance preferences to the Filters list. You can already show your favorite spaces on top and now we're adding this preference to the Filters menu list. You can quickly switch to see your favorite spaces on top or not. See Filter Your Spaces and Content.

Calling

Choose Whether to Make Audio or Video Calls—Windows and Mac

That's right! You don't need to worry about those bad hair days anymore. When you make any type of call to another person, you get to choose whether to start your call with video or not. If you don't, you can always turn it on during the call. You can turn your video off for incoming calls too, depending on your configuration. See Webex Teams | Make a Video Call, Webex Teams | Make a Audio Call, and Webex Teams | Turn Off Your Video for all Incoming Calls.

Make a Call Using your On-Premises Webex Device—Windows and Mac

Is your on-premises Webex device registered to Unified CM? You can now call phone numbers while connected to your on-premises Webex device. So, you can call someone's mobile number or your local pizza place directly from Webex Teams and the call takes place on your Webex device. See Calling Behavior in Cisco Webex Teams with Connected Webex Devices.

Support for Feature Access Codes using Calling in Webex Teams (Webex Calling)—Windows and Mac

We're adding support for Feature Access Codes (FAC) that let you use advanced calling features by entering codes using the dialpad. For example, while on a call, you can press *68 to park it. We're supporting codes to let you forward calls, block numbers, record calls, park calls, pull calls, and more. See Webex Calling | Advanced Calling Feature Codes.

Make Webex Teams Calls—Windows and Mac

Some organizations are set up to let you call people on their phone numbers using Calling in Webex Teams (Unified CM) or Calling in Webex Teams (Webex Calling). When you call someone on their phone number, you can also put those calls on hold, transfer them, and more, depending on your setup.

Now, you'll be able to choose whether to call people using their phone number or using a Webex Teams call. A Webex Teams call is a quick way to call someone else who's using Webex Teams. You'll be able to share your screen and whiteboard while in the call, but you won't be able to put the call on hold, transfer the call, or use other features only available in phone calls. See Webex Teams | Call Anyone with a Webex Teams Account.

Meetings

Join Meetings Using your Cisco DX Series or your Desk Phone (Calling Cisco Webex Teams (Unified CM)—Windows and Mac

Is your DX or desk phone registered to Unified CM? You could already make calls using your personal device and with this update, you can use it to join all your meetings. Simply, select your personal device and join the meeting. You can control the meeting from Webex Teams and share content into the meeting.

Edit Your Message—Windows and Mac

We’ve been listening to your feedback on editing your messages. Whether you sent the message before formatting or you misspelled a word, you can now go back to edit your message. After you update it, a note next to the message indicates that it’s been edited. If you're using Webex Teams for mobile or web, you can see when people edit messages using the desktop apps, but you won't be able to edit messages. See Edit Messages for details.

Threading Updates—Windows and Mac

We're continuing to add new functionality for Threading. This release, we're adding a new Threads activity . You can see a list of all the threads you're a part of in the space, each thread shows the message where the thread was created and the date of the last reply. You can click on any thread in that list to go to where that thread started in the space and see all the messages for the thread. See Find Your Threads in a Space for details.

Design Alignment for Applications—Windows and Mac

We’re making a few changes to align the design of our Webex Teams app with other apps in our Cisco Collaboration portfolio. This is to ensure that users have a familiar calling, messaging, and meeting experience, regardless of which app or device they happen to be using. These changes include:

  • The Home icon is changing to a Spaces icon . (We've included this change on the mobile apps too.)

  • Your profile picture is moving to the first column, this will help you get to your profile, status, or settings no matter where you are in the app.

See The Cisco Webex Teams App UI for details.

Calling Enhancements in Cisco Webex Teams (Unified CM)—Windows and Mac

We're adding more features that your administrator can add if your account's set up to use Unified CM calling features in Webex Teams.

  • Conference calls—when you're on a call with someone else, you might want to add other people into the call to start a conference call right away. You can add up to 8 other people into your conference calls started like this. Webex Teams | Start a Conference Call

  • Call forwarding—if you need to take your work calls from another number, you can set up call forwarding right from Webex Teams. Just enter the call forwarding number, and your calls all ring at that number. See Webex Teams | Forward Phone Calls for details.

  • Single number reach—you can turn single number reach on right from the app rather than going to the Self Care Portal. With this turned on, you can get calls even if you're away from your desk. If you need to update the phone numbers, you'll still need to use the Self Care Portal. See Webex Teams | Get Phone Calls at Any Number for details.

  • Secure calls—you can make secure and encrypted calls if your account is set up to do so.

You'll also be able to merge, conference, and transfer calls when you've chosen your desk phone from Webex Teams.

Forward a Message to Another Space—Windows and Mac

Someone posted a great tip that you want to share with other people? Right now, you need to copy and paste or take a screen shot and then upload that to the other space. We’d like to save you a few clicks by letting you forward a message from one space to another. See Forward Messages for details.

Add Branding to Webex Teams—Windows and Mac

We're making a significant improvement to co-branding in Webex Teams. Administrators can now apply their chosen logo and color to the first column of Webex Teams, ensuring that their brand and corporate identity can be reflected in the application experience they provide to users.

Previously, an administrator could add a logo to the About window and now this logo also appears in the navigation menu. See Add Your Company Branding to Webex Teams and Customize Branding and Support Settings for Customers in Cisco Webex Control Hub for details.

Suppress Screensaver when Sharing—Windows and Mac

Now while you're sharing your screen you don’t need to worry about your screensaver activating and interrupting your share.

Stickies on Whiteboards—Windows and Mac

Automatically Reduce Image Sizes when Sending Messages—iPhone, iPad, and Android

When you're using Webex Teams on the go, you're often connecting using cellular data rather than Wi-Fi. So, when you're sharing images, you might have reduced bandwidth or limited data roaming preventing you from successfully sending that message. We're adding a setting to let you decide whether you want to reduce the image sizes when you send them to help in these situations. See Reduce File Size when Sharing in Cisco Webex Teamsfor details. (Today we're supporting this for images and video on iPhone and iPad. For Android, we're supporting images today, and we're planning to support videos on August 9, 2019.)

You don’t need to think about how things are connected. See Move a Call from your Cisco Webex Teams App to a Cisco Device for details.

Mute Everyone in a Meeting—Windows and Mac

Who’s eating their lunch? Who has a loud office colleague? You don’t need to track down who’s making noise. You can just mute everyone in the meeting at the same time. If someone mutes you, you can unmute yourself when you need to.

  • Meeting in a space—anyone can mute all (and unmute all too). Everyone except the person muting and the current presenter gets muted.

  • Webex standard meeting or Personal Room meeting—host can mute all (and unmute all too). Everyone except the current presenter and host gets muted.

Don’t worry if you’ve already muted yourself (and your barking dog). If someone chooses to unmute all, you’ll still be muted. See Mute Everyone in a Cisco Webex Teams Meeting for details.

Latest App Releases

These app versions correspond to this month's release. We update this list with the latest versions if we release any updates before next month's release. See Cisco Webex Teams Release Notes to get information about the issues resolved with these releases.

July 19, 2019

View Saved Whiteboards and Snapshots—iPhone, iPad, and Android

We've added Whiteboard back to the mobile apps so you can see any whiteboards that are saved to the space, but, for now, you can't create them.

Share with Other Mobile Apps and Share Files from Other Spaces—iPhone, iPad

You can now share directly between Webex Teams and other apps on your device. So, if you're in your phone app, you can send a picture directly to Webex Teams. You can also share files between spaces in Webex Teams.

July 15, 2019

We've temporarily paused automatic updates to the 4.0 version of Webex Teams for iPhone and iPad while we resolve some reported issues. If you go to the App Store, you can still download the 4.0 version manually, but we recommend that you wait until we release an updated version.

July 8, 2019

Know When People are at their Computer—Windows and Mac

Previously, when someone's status displayed as inactive in Webex Teams, they could still be at their computer, but they just weren't active in Webex Teams. Now, people's status shows as active in Webex Teams when they're using their computer.

Calling Integration with Cisco Unified Communication Manager (Unified CM)—Windows and Mac

We've made merge and transfer available to everyone now.

July 3, 2019

View Appointments in Your Meetings List—Windows, Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android, and Web

You can now see details about your upcoming appointments in your meetings list, along with your upcoming meetings. Appointments are calendar events that you schedule without inviting anyone else. See Schedule a Cisco Webex Meeting from Your Calendar for details.

Show When You're Out of Office with Microsoft Office 365 and Google Calendar—Windows, Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android, and WebWhen you have to leave the office for an appointment or when you go on vacation, your status in the app lets people know you're out of the office. Set up your automatic replies for out of office using Microsoft Office 365 or your vacation responder using Google Calendar. (We already support this feature with Microsoft Exchange.) See Show When You're Out of Office for details.

June 27, 2019

View People Insights Profiles—Windows, Mac, Web, iPhone, iPad, and Android

People Insights lets you see rich, contextually relevant, professionally applicable info about people you're collaborating with, without leaving Webex Teams. Just hover over someone’s profile picture or their name in a space to get to their People Insights profile.

People Insights only displays publicly available information in profiles, similar to what can be found in search engine results for a person's name. But People Insights puts that information right at your fingertips so it's easier than ever to find a quick icebreaker or build a better relationship.

Meeting someone from your own company? Within their profile you'll find internal directory information like their title, contact info, and reporting structure. People Insights also displays internal company directory information to users in the same company. See View People Insights Profiles in Cisco Webex Teams for details.

Follow Conversations More Easily with Threads—Windows, Mac, and Web

You can now use threading to better keep track of those conversations happening within spaces. We wanted to get this initial release into your hands, but we'll be continuing to enhance it over the upcoming months. So, give it a try and look forward to more functionality coming soon! See Follow Conversations More Easily with Threads in Cisco Webex Teams for details. (We've included a video too so be sure to check it out!)

Keep Your Favorite Spaces at the Top—Windows, Mac, and Web

You might not be able to tell us who your favorite child or pet is, but it’s OK to have favorite spaces! We’re making it easier to focus on those most important spaces. Let them take their well-deserved position at the top of the spaces list. You can focus on those conversations and get back to them quickly. Don’t worry; you’ll still see your other spaces too, just below the favorites in the list. See Get to Your Favorite Spaces More Quickly for details.

Recommend Webex Teams—Windows, Mac, and Web

After you’ve been using Webex Teams for a while, you might be asked to let us know how likely you are to recommend it to someone else. We appreciate you taking a couple of minutes to let us know what you think. Once you've answered, you won't be asked again for another year.

Join Meetings and Share with On-Premises Webex Devices—Windows and Mac

On-premises? Cloud? What does this mean? You just want to share your presentation on the big screen in that conference room. Now we’re making it easier for you to do that without worrying about how everything’s connected.

You’ve been able to use cloud-registered Webex devices with Webex Teams, and now you can automatically connect to on-premises Webex Devices within the same Wi-Fi network.

After you connect, you can wirelessly share content with other people in the same room and use the device to join meetings. In the meeting, you can share content and control the device microphone and volume.

See Allow Users to Connect to On-Premises Devices for details about setting this up in your organization.

Calling Integration with Cisco Unified Communication Manager (Unified CM)—Windows and Mac

If your organization supports this calling integration, you can use Webex Teams with your work number. So, you can call co-workers within your organization using their phone numbers (or mobile numbers) wherever you can make calls in the app. You can call other people outside of your organization directly using the phone keypad. (You can call and order pizza for everyone to celebrate that product launch!)

With today's release, you can make and receive calls, as well as put them on hold. It also includes integrated control of your desk phone from the desktop application. Merge and transfer will remain in limited availability, these features will need to be enabled over our cloud services and are expected to be generally available shortly. See Explore Calling in Cisco Webex Teams (Unified CM) for information about using these features. Or, if you need to set up these features for your organization, see Set Up Cisco Webex Teams Calling Behavior to get started.

Ongoing Improvements to Accessibility Support—Windows and Mac

We’re continuing to make improvements to our accessibility support in Webex Teams. See Accessibility Support for Cisco Webex Teams for details.

Support for Emojis on Windows 7—Windows

Windows 7 folks, you can turn that frown upside down because now you can use emojis too! See Add Fun to Your Messages with Emojis for details.

New Webex Teams for Mobile Apps are Here!—iPhone, iPad, and Android

We're excited to release our new mobile apps! We've redesigned them so that they share a common code with our desktop apps. These changes let us release more features for desktop and mobile at the same time and create mobile-specific features that truly take advantage of the mobile platform.

You'll see many of these benefits already with features we’re releasing, like:

We have a few features that need some additional work to make them just right, and they'll be available in upcoming releases and posted in Coming Soon. For now, you won't be able to:

  • Join a meeting using the Call In or Call Me options on your Android device and the Call Me option on your iPhone or iPad device. But you'll be able to join a meeting by selecting a connected Webex device or your phone and on your iPhone or iPad you can choose Call In. We've temporarily removed these options from Join a Meeting Using Your Phone.

  • Add your local calendar on your mobile device to the calendar in Webex Teams, but you'll still be able to use hybrid calendars, if your account is configured to use them. We've temporarily removed the article, Set Up Your Calendar in Cisco Webex Teams for Mobile and have redirected it to View Upcoming Meetings in Cisco Webex Teams.

  • Share your screen in a meeting, but you'll be able to see other people's content when they're sharing.We've temporarily removed information about mobile from Share Your Screen or Application in a Cisco Webex Teams Meeting or Call.

  • Associate your Webex Personal Room, but if you've already associated Webex Teams with your Personal Room from Windows or Mac, you'll be able to use it from the mobile apps. We've updated Set Up Your Cisco Webex Personal Room in Cisco Webex Teams to reflect this change.

  • Create or share whiteboards, but you'll be able to see whiteboard snapshots when they're shared to the space and view active whiteboarding sessions. See Open a Cisco Webex Teams Whiteboard for details.

  • Share content wirelessly to Webex devices, but you'll be able see what other people share on the device or connect to the device from your app to see it there. We've temporarily removed information about mobile from Share Content Wirelessly from Cisco Webex Teams to Cisco Webex Devices.

  • Share directly from other apps on your device, such photos, to Webex Teams. You can still share photos and files to a space when you're in the Webex Teams app, but you won't be able to share files or photos between spaces. See Share Files with Others in Cisco Webex Teams for help sharing files in the app.

Also, we recently submitted the mobile apps the app stores for review, and you'll be able to download this latest version as soon as they're approved and posted.

Rich Text Formatting—Web

Make your messages easier to read by adding rich formatting such as headers, bold, and other styles. See Webex Teams | Format Messages for details.

See More Info on Contact Cards—Windows, Mac, and Web

Need to make sure that you’re contacting Karen Adams in HR, not marketing? You can now see more details about your co-workers on their contact cards, such as job titles, managers, and departments. See Verify Who You're Contacting for details.

Add Links for Meetings and Spaces with the Webex Teams Protocol Handler—Windows and Mac

You can use the Webex Teams protocol handler to add links for meetings or spaces. Add the custom links to an email or web page and people can quickly access specific meetings or spaces. See Add Links for Cisco Webex Teams Meetings or Spaces with webexteams Protocol for details.

Infinite Whiteboards—Windows and Mac

That sounds large, doesn't it? Well, with infinite whiteboards, you can keep drawing, drawing, and drawing! From wherever you start, scroll and pan in all directions, and zoom in and out too. We're not going to stifle your creativity by limiting the size of your whiteboard canvas (your annotations, however, are still limited to the size of the image that you're annotating). See Create a Whiteboard in a Cisco Webex Teams Space for details.

Dial a Number using Connected Devices with Calling in Cisco Webex Teams (Unified CM)—Windows and Mac

From Webex Teams, you can call phone numbers while connected to a cloud-registered Webex device enabled for Hybrid Place (if you're not sure if this applies to you, check with your local support contact). So, call someone's mobile phone number or your local pizza place directly from Webex Teams and have the call take place on your Webex Device. See Explore Calling in Cisco Webex Teams (Unified CM) for more details.

Add Multiple People to a Space—Windows and Mac

Save some clicks by searching for and entering up to 50 people to add to a space at the same time.

Annotations and Whiteboards Draw Closer—Windows and Mac

We're making it easier to find your annotations by having annotations and whiteboards in the same place. After annotating content, the snapshot gets saved with whiteboards instead of files . So, the whiteboard and annotations are in the same place, ready for you to pick up where you left off. We’ve also consolidated our whiteboards and annotations to give you a more consistent experience. We've also updated the icon for annotations, so it’s the same icon for both annotating and whiteboarding. See Mark Up a Shared Screen with Annotations During a Call or Meeting for details.

Quickly Create New Whiteboard in a Meeting—Windows and Mac

While you’re in a meeting, you can quickly start a new whiteboard using the in-meeting controls. Just click and select New Whiteboard. See Create a Whiteboard in a Cisco Webex Teams Space for details.

Also, if you're sharing a whiteboard in a meeting, you can just click in the bottom left corner of your screen to see all the whiteboards and annotations in the space.

Ongoing Improvements to Align with Windows—Windows

We're continuing to add support for Windows features so that the app feels like your other Windows apps. For example, you can now see the badge notifications on the Webex Teams icon when you're using small taskbar icons. We've also made some improvements to scrolling through the spaces list and message area.

Ongoing Improvements to Accessibility Support—Windows

We’re continuing to make improvements to our accessibility support in Webex Teams. For Windows, we've added additional screen reader support for navigating the space list and accessing the right-click menus in a space. We've also improved the navigation for screen readers when reviewing your call history or using the keypad available from Calls .

Separate Filters for @me and @all Mentions—Web

You're busy and want to know when someone really needs your attention or just wants to let everyone in the space know something. So, we're splitting up the @mentions in the filters, and you can see who contacted you directly (@me) or to an entire space (@all). See Filter Your @ Mentions

April 25, 2019

Alternate Hosts Can Start Webex Scheduled Meetings or Personal Room Meetings—Windows, Mac, and Web

If you set up someone else as an alternate host for your Webex scheduled meetings or Personal Room meetings, they can start your meeting for you and control it if you are not in the meeting. If you join later, the host control passes to you. See Make Someone Else the Host of Your Meeting in Cisco Webex Teams for details.


You can only use this feature if the Webex site is managed in or linked to Cisco Webex Control Hub. Your and the alternate hosts' Webex Meetings accounts must also be linked to your Webex Teams accounts.

More Status Information Available—Windows, Mac, and Web

You'll see new status icons when someone's on a call, in a meeting, or sharing their screen. So, you'll know whether to wait a bit before contacting them or sending hilarious GIFs. See See People's Status in Cisco Webex Teams for details.

Drag and Drop Files into Spaces—Windows and Mac

You can drag files into a space without opening the space first. After you drag the files, the message area opens automatically so you can confirm that you want to copy them into the space. So, you don't have to worry about accidentally dragging a file into the wrong space. See Drag and Drop Files to the Space List for details.

Change Location for Downloads—Windows and Mac

We added a new option to Settings (on Windows) and Preferences (on Mac) to let you choose a different folder to use when downloading from the app. See View and Download Files Shared in a Space for details.

Delete Annotations—Windows and Mac

Whenever you annotate a shared screen during a meeting, your annotations are automatically saved in the space. You can go to the activity menu and choose to open and download the saved annotations. In this release, you can now also delete them.

Share Screen without Calling—Windows and Mac

When you're messaging someone directly, you now can share your screen with them without being in a call. Go to the activity menu and choose Share Screen . See Share Your Screen without Calling in Cisco Webex Teams for details.

Connect to Webex Devices using Wi-Fi—Windows and Mac

Back in August 2018, we released this feature to let you use Wi-Fi to discover and connect to Webex devices, in addition to ultrasound. When we released it, we turned it off by default. We're now turning it on by default; however, your administrator can still disable it for your organization using Webex Control Hub.

Change What You're Sharing While You're Sharing—Windows

On Windows, you can now change which application or screen you're sharing, while sharing. So, you don't need to stop sharing before switching applications or screens. For example, if you are sharing an application and then want to share your whole screen, click Share Screen at the top of your screen. You can also start sharing audio or video without restarting the share again (we already support this feature on Mac.). See Share Your Screen or Application in a Cisco Webex Teams Meeting or Call for details.

Minor Updates to User Interface—Windows

We're cleaning up the interface a bit to make sure that the Windows app more closely aligns with other Windows apps. You'll see some changes to dialog boxes, messages, and other components that update the look and feel of the app. We're not changing any functionality, just changing some interface elements.

Updates to Activity Menu Icons—Windows

We're changing the name of the Meetings icon so it's easier to know its purpose. Because you use it to schedule meetings in the space, we're changing the name to Schedule. The icon itself isn't changing.

We're also changing the Meet icon that's used in spaces with three or more people. We're changing from to , but we're not changing the name.

See More Spaces at a Glance—Web

You're staying connected with a lot of people in all the spaces you've joined! Now, we're making it easier for you to see more of them at the same time. We're adding an option to view your spaces list in a compact view. If you turn it on, you'll be able to see more without scrolling as much. See Show More Spaces in Your Spaces List for details.

Separate Filters for @me and @all Mentions—Windows and Mac

You're busy and want to know when someone really needs your attention or just wants to let everyone in the space know something.

Search Improvements—Windows and Mac

We're changing More to Show more and Back to Show less in the search results to make the options clearer. See Find People, Spaces, Messages, and Files for details.

February 28, 2019

Ongoing Improvements to Accessibility Support—Windows, Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android, and Web

We’re continuing to make improvements to our accessibility support across all of our Webex Teams apps. For example, for web, we're adding screen reader support for the space list and space navigation.

Make Calls with Other Calling Apps from Webex Teams—Windows, Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Android

When you make a call from Webex Teams, you'll be able to launch another calling application to make calls so you can leverage the calling capabilities available in the other app. Your administrator must set this up for your account before you're able to use it. If you have multiple phone numbers assigned to your directory account synchronized with Webex Teams, other people can choose which one to use when calling you from your contact card.

Media Streaming in Meetings—Windows and Mac

When you share content in a meeting, you can check Optimize for video to increase the frame rate so videos and slide deck transitions play without any lag. People in the meeting will see the video play much more smoothly. Also, when you share a video or anything else that includes sound, you can check Share computer audio so everyone in the meeting will be able to hear it too. See Share Your Screen or Application in a Cisco Webex Teams Meeting or Call for details.

Quote Someone's Message—Windows and Mac

Sometimes you need to add context to your messages when responding to someone in the middle of the ongoing conversations in a space. Now you'll be able to quote someone's message so you can comment on it directly. See Quote Someone's Message in Cisco Webex Teams for details.

Right-Click the Spaces List—Windows and Mac

We're hoping to save you a few clicks (and time!) by adding a right-click menu to the spaces list. You'll be able to do things like: add the space to your favorites, add people to the space, set up notifications, and more without having to go into the space. See Quickly Access Your Space Options for details.

Turn Emoticons into Emojis—Windows and Mac

When you're messaging someone and type :-) to let them know you're happy that the presentation went well, that's an emoticon. You'll now be able to automatically convert that into an emoji instead. We're saving you a couple clicks to get to the emoji menu! See Turn Emoticons into Emoji in Your Messages for details.

Timestamps Added to Spaces in Search Results —Windows and Mac

When you're searching for a particular space, sometimes it's hard to know if you've found the right one, especially if the spaces with similar names. Now, you'll be able to see when someone last posted in the space so you know which ones have been active recently. See Find People, Spaces, Messages, and Files for details.

Local Meeting Recordings—Windows and Mac

If you're administrator has enabled this option for you, you're now able to record meetings and store them locally on your computer rather than on the server. If it's a standard Cisco Webex or Personal Room meeting, only the meeting host can record. But, if it's a meeting scheduled in a Webex Teams space, any space member within the org can record the meeting.

Wider Whiteboard Availability in Meetings and Calls—Windows and Mac

More people in Webex Teams team meetings can now view shared whiteboards even if they’re not members of the space where the meeting is taking place. These guests can include people joining from:

  • Webex Teams for Windows, Mac, or web who are not space members

  • Standards based video endpoints (SIP, H.323)

  • Skype for Business apps.

Also, when you’re connected to a cloud-registered Webex room or desk device in a meeting or a call, you’ll also be able to see the shared whiteboard content on the Webex device. See Share and Edit a Cisco Webex Teams Whiteboard During a Meeting for details.

Call Changed to Meet in Group Spaces—Web

We're making a small change to make it more obvious when you're calling someone or meeting with a group. In spaces between just two people, you'll still see Call. But, when you're in a space with three or more people, we've renamed Call to Meet and changed the icons too. Here's how the icons will look:

  • Call

  • Meet

New Light and Dark Themes—Windows and Mac

If you switch to dark theme, you'll see everything a dark gray background, including messages, teams, calls, and meetings. Then, when you're using the light theme, everything has a light gray background.

You'll still have high contrast and today's default themes available too. Plus, when you choose the default theme, the team spaces list and the calls list will also have the dark gray coloring like the spaces list does already. See Change the Color Theme in Cisco Webex Teams.

Wireless Media Sharing Locally—Windows and Mac

When you share content from Webex Teams to a Webex Device locally with other people in the same room, you can check Optimize for video to increase the frame rate so videos and slide deck transitions play without any lag. People in the room will see the video play much more smoothly on the device.

Also, on Windows, when you share a video or anything else that includes sound, you can check Share computer audio to play the sound on the device. If you're using Mac, you'll be able to play the sound from your computer. See Optimize Video and Audio for Shared Content in Cisco Webex Teams.

Add GIFs to Messages—Web

Add some fun to your expressive messaging with an embedded library of GIFs, provided by GIPHY.

Changes to the Personal Room Settings—Windows, Mac, and Web

Updates to Meetings Scheduled in a Space—Windows and Mac

We're making a few changes to how you schedule and view meetings associated with spaces. You'll see a new interface when you schedule these types of meetings. Plus, from the Meetings and Message activities in a space, you'll also see a complete list of meetings associated with that space.

When you’re in a meeting in Webex Teams, we now optimize the video resolution using 180p, 360p, or 720p depending on the size of the app window and whether anyone is sharing content. With these changes, we’re able to better optimize your available network bandwidth. Previously, we used 720p video resolution regardless.

High Contrast for Accessibility—Windows

You'll be able to choose high contrast settings so that it's easier to view the text and icons in the Webex Teams app.

Immediate PIN Lock—iPhone, iPad, and Android

If your company requires you to set a PIN to lock the screen on your mobile device, you were previously given three opportunities to do so. Now, you're required to set one immediately before using Webex Teams.

Ongoing Improvements to Accessibility Support—iPhone and iPad

We’re making further improvements to support screen readers and making more views in the app responsive to increased contrast.

Know when You're Added to a Space—iPhone, iPad, and Android

You've already had this on Windows and Mac, and now you can use it on mobile too! No more guessing why you don't recognize some of the spaces on your list. When someone adds you to a new space, you'll see an icon next to the space in your Spaces list to let you know. After you've opened the space for the first time, the icon goes away.

Quote Someone's Message—iPhone and iPad

Sometimes you need to add context to your messages when responding to someone in the middle of the ongoing conversations in a space. Now you'll be able to quote someone's message so you can comment on it directly. The quoted message shows the person's name and indents their original comment when you add your reply.

Enhanced Meeting Features—Web

We've made a few changes to how you can use meetings features. You can zoom when sharing your screen during a meeting, record meetings, get details about the meeting by clicking i next to the meeting title.

Enhanced Connections with Cisco Webex Devices—Web

Whilte in a meeting or call, you can share your screen, start a call, or open a space (on Webex Board) on Webex devices.

Undo Whiteboard Actions—Web

Previously available on desktop and mobile, you can now undo all the lines you’ve just drawn using the new Undo feature on Webex Teams for Web too. You can only undo the lines you have drawn (not from any of the other contributors), and once you leave the whiteboard, the changes are permanently saved and can’t be undone later.

Hide the Spaces List—Web

If you need more space to do your work, you can hide the spaces list to maximize your work area. You're already able to do this on Windows and Mac, and now we're making it available on web too.

Audio Only Calls—iPhone, iPad, and Android

Yes! It's true! You can join a meeting or call without sharing your video. Bad hair days, after-hour calls, and calls on the go are much easier now.

We originally planned to release this feature on September 6. However, when testing audio-only calling on iOS and Android, we discovered that the deep integration into the device calling system was causing the slight differences in answer behavior depending on if the device was locked, unlocked, or if Webex Teams was active. We are delaying the release of audio only calling until we address these differences in behavior.

Contact Cards—Web

You can see people's contact cards now by clicking on their profile picture. Contact cards let you make sure you're contacting the right person by showing their picture and email address. Then, you can call or message them directly from their contact card.

Contact Cards—Windows and Mac

Yesterday, we originally planned to release an update to contact cards to let people see additional phone numbers, such as both mobile and work numbers. However, based on feedback that we gathered during customer testing, we've decided to delay the updated design. We discovered that in some cases, phone numbers would appear on peoples' cards, even if they weren't set up to use calling in Webex Teams.

Add GIFs to Messages—Windows, Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Android

If a picture is worth a thousand words, how many words are worth a GIF? Add some fun to your expressive messaging with an embedded library of GIFs, provided by GIPHY. Search the entire library or choose from commonly used search terms to quickly add GIFs to the conversation.

Made a mistake when working on a whiteboard? Now you can undo all the lines you’ve just drawn using the new Undo feature. You can only undo the lines you have drawn (not from any of the other contributors), and once you leave the whiteboard, the changes are permanently saved and can’t be undone later.

Meeting Participants Now Display within Rectangles—Windows and Mac

When participating in a meeting in Webex Teams, you'll now see the profiles pictures and videos of the other people in the meeting displayed within rectangles rather than ovals or circles. If you're also using Webex Meetings, this change should look familiar!

Automatic Connection with Cisco Webex Devices—iPhone, iPad, and Android

You can connect with Webex devices using the same menu already available on desktop. If you have a lot of devices close by, you can also set certain devices to not automatically connect.

Share Screen Wirelessly to Webex Devices—iPhone, iPad, and Android

Share content from your mobile device to a Webex device while you are in a call. Or, if you're not in a call, you can just share your presentation locally to the device in the conference room. We've included a tutorial in the app to show you everything you need to do to get started.

New Colors for Whiteboards—iPhone, iPad, and Android

New whiteboard colors are now available on mobile too. Add more creativity to your whiteboard designs with these new colors.

Redesigned Activity Area—Web

We've made some changes to how you interact with the activities in the app:

  • We’ve replaced the activity menu with a new drop-down menu that gives you quick access to all your activities. The activity menu is accessible from all your activities so it's quick to swap between activities.

  • We’ve redesigned the activity area to give you more room to focus just on that activity. When you click an activity (such as Whiteboard or Files), you’re not limited to just the right side of the app. Your chosen activity takes over all the activity area so you can focus just on that activity.

  • The new activity menu layout gives you easy access to see people in the space and to update the space settings. On the bottom left, you'll see who's in the space, and you can add new people to it. On the bottom right, you can access the settings for the space (previously the space information ).

  • We've changed Call to Meet for spaces with 3 or more people and Meetings to Schedule for all spaces.

July 17, 2018

Since launching the rebranded Webex Teams on May 21, 2018, we’ve introduced a series of design updates and features, such as making it easier to find spaces and simplifying connecting to devices. Before each release, we test new design updates and features with our customers to gather feedback and continuously improve Webex Teams. While testing link preview and animated GIFs, we learned that customers wanted more control over certain capabilities, and decided to delay the launch of link preview and animated GIFs until we can allow administrators to control these features in Webex Control Hub. Based on these changes, we will shortly publish new release dates for design updates and features.

Now, you can use the same meetings capabilities using Webex Teams on Windows, Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android, and Web. See Schedule a Cisco Webex Team Meeting from a Space for more info.

Enhancements to notifications help you focus on spaces that you care about most. You'll have fewer distractions as blue dots only appear for the unread spaces that match your notification settings.

New Meetings Experience in Cisco Spark

You can start and host Cisco WebEx and Personal Room meetings directly from Cisco Spark, using many WebEx meetings features, such as phone audio options and recording, depending on your WebEx account settings. The People list shows the same participant information you’d see if you joined the meeting from the Cisco WebEx app.

Cisco Spark meetings that are associated with a space can now have core WebEx meeting capabilities, such as phone audio options, recording, and guest meeting access, if the space is created by someone with a WebEx account. The person who created the space becomes the meeting sponsor, allowing all meetings from the space to have the same capabilities, no matter who schedules or starts the meeting from the space. In addition, meetings in the space can now support up to 75 participants. Cisco Spark meetings also have enhanced controls for viewing speakers, shared content, and participants in meetings.

For more information, see New Meetings Experience in Cisco Spark

Administrators can check the requirements for this new meetings experience here: Prerequisites for the New Meeting Experience in Cisco Spark.

Streamlining Your Spaces

Over the next few releases, we'll introduce several updates to the app’s notifications settings and search filters. These updates will improve how you view and manage spaces and give you greater control over your notifications. The first update removes the split between People and Spaces. Cisco Spark for Windows and Mac will now work like most mobile apps do, without dividing your people and spaces. If you want to see all your direct messages, you can still use the People filter. See The Cisco Spark App UI and Filter Your Spaces and Content.

Cisco Spark Installation and Automatic Upgrade Changes

In response to certain issues encountered following Cisco Spark upgrades, we'll be making some changes to the installation and automatic upgrade process for Windows. Cisco Spark will run from a consistent executable path across updates. We'll also be changing the executable filename for Cisco Spark for Windows. See Cisco Spark Installation and Automatic Upgrade
