Name labels in thumbnail videos are now aligned to the lower left, have a more transparent background, and are reduced in size to avoid covering up the participant's face.

All the world’s a stage—Linux and VDI

Customize your video layout when you’re in stack or side by side layout. Drag a video from the filmstrip on to the stage to get a closer look at a participant.

Microsoft Teams Integration: More streamlined calling experience for mismatched UPN (User Principal Name)—Windows and Mac

Previously, when you made a call and your UPN in Microsoft Teams didn't match your UPN in Webex, we asked you to confirm before making the call. We have now simplified this experience by checking your email addresses (not just your UPN) and allowing the call to go through without needing confirmation.

Your UPN in Microsoft Teams can be different than the UPN used in the Webex integration, if your organization has gone through an acquisition, rebranding, or if you moved from a different department in the company, or maybe you changed your name: your email address would be updated, but your UPN would remain the same.

We're planning to release the Webex App for August a little later. We just wanted to let you know about this change, and we'll post an update on August 4th.

Change the font size for messaging—Windows, Mac, and Linux

You don't have to strain your eyes to read your messages any more. Just choose a font size you prefer, so you don't miss any details. You can always change it again at any time, simply go to the Accessibility tab in your Settings on Windows (or Preferences on Mac).

See Webex App | Change the font size for messages

Find a quote in context—Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android

Looking for added context when a message is quoted in a space? With one click, easily find the original quote, and its associated reactions and threads.

See Webex App | Quotes or threads and Webex App | Quote someone's message

Reply directly—Windows, Mac and Linux

Ever felt reluctant to reply to a message in a busy space, or want to reply to a message from an announcement space? We've made it easier to reply to the author in a direct message, quoting the original message.

See Webex App | Reply directly

Be selective about what you share—VDI

You have more options when you're sharing content, making presentations or troubleshooting a more seamless experience:

  • Share specific applications
  • Swap one application for another without having to stop sharing.
  • Use annotations to mark up what's being shared.
  • If you're sharing a video, you can share your computer audio.
  • Others see what you're sharing with high frames per second (FPS).

The calling service your administrator has set up for you determines which calling features you can use.

Below, we've indicated which calling service each new feature applies to. If you're not sure what calling service you have, see Webex App | Find Out What Calling Service You Have.

The following feature applies to Unified CM, Webex Calling, and Calling hosted by a Service Provider

Know who's calling you—VDI

When someone in your organization's directory calls you, their name appears in the Caller ID and your call history, rather than just their phone number. This helps you decide whether you want to answer certain calls.

The following features apply to Webex Calling and Calling hosted by a Service Provider

Remove background noise on the remote end of a phone call—Windows and Mac

If you're in a phone call with someone who's not using Webex App and they're in a noisy location such as a busy airport or cafe, no need to worry. Just suppress the remote noise during your call.

Turn off background noise

See Webex App | Remove background noise from the other end of a phone call

Fewer clicks to get to your call queues—Windows and Mac

We've made access to your call queues more convenient. Instead of having to navigate to your profile picture to change your call queue status or to join or unjoin a call queue, you now have it all available from the footer of your app. From there, change your call queue status and join or unjoin any queues your administrator has made you a member of.

Call Queue options that are available from the footer of your app

See Webex App | Change your call queue status

The following feature applies to Unified CM

Bring work home with you—VDI

You can already make calls from an alternate device when connected to your work network. Now, that network connection is no longer required. Make a call from your desk phone, mobile phone, or home phone at home, when you're not connected to your work network. You can even take advantage of some calling features, such as transfer, hold and resume.

The following feature applies to Call on Webex

Focus on the individual, instead of their surroundings, during a meeting—Windows and Mac

This feature is in beta.

We've added new feature in grid layout called people focus, which gives you a better face-to-face experience with the people you're meeting with.

Regardless of how each person is positioned in front of their camera, the app automatically adjusts so that each person's face is what you focus on. You'll feel more connected to them—as if you were there in person.

People Focus

See Use people focus to see people more clearly in meetings and webinars

Seamlessly move your meeting to a video device—Windows, Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Android

If you start or join a meeting on your desktop or mobile device but then walk into a conference room, take advantage of the features available on the room's video device. Transfer your meeting to the video device without disrupting or disconnecting from the meeting.

See Webex App | Move your meeting to a video device

Right-to-left language support for Arabic and Hebrew in closed captions—Windows, Linux, Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Android

When you select Arabic or Hebrew for closed captions, you’ll see the right-to-left text direction in the closed captions box and captions & highlights panel, regardless of your language setting in Webex App.

See Show or hide automated closed captions during a Webex meeting or webinar

It’s more convenient to see who’s recording a meeting—Windows, Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Android

Select the recording indicator to see who started, paused, or stopped recording the meeting. Previously, this information showed in the participants list.

This feature is available when the host or cohost records the meeting on their computer.

See Get started with Webex App

Schedule a webinar from Webex App—Windows, Mac, and Linux

Schedule a webinar right from the Meetings tab. You're redirected, and automatically signed in, to the Webex site you've selected in the Webex App settings, the site is where you'll schedule your webinar.

If you're already signed in to a different Webex site though, you're redirected to the sign-in screen for the site you've selected in the Webex App settings.

Webex App supports Center Stage, the camera feature from Apple—iPad

If you move around during a meeting, turn on Center Stage so your camera automatically pans to keep you and anyone with you, in the frame.

Turn on or turn off Center Stage from the options in your self-view video or from Settings on your iPad.

See Webex App | Turn on Center Stage

We’ve made it more intuitive to join a meeting—VDI

Enhancements to the Join meeting window make it clearer when you’re not yet in the meeting. Visual changes let you know what your audio options are when you join the meeting.

It's easier to see what your camera options are, how to upload or change your virtual background, and make changes if you’re connected to a device.

See Choose your audio and video settings before you join a meeting or webinar

Hear the meeting in a language that you can understand—VDI

If interpretation is available in a meeting that you join as an attendee, you can choose to hear the audio translated, simultaneously, in the language of your choice.

The meeting host determines which languages are available in the meeting.

Hosts and interpreters can include simultaneous interpretation in meetings scheduled from Webex Meetings, not in meetings scheduled from Webex App.

See Select your preferred language audio channel in Webex meetings and webinars

All the world’s a stage—VDI

Customize your video layout when you’re in stack or side by side layout. Drag a video from the filmstrip on to the stage to get a closer look at a participant. Place an active speaker right next to the content that's being shared, or keep people who aren't actively speaking, such as a sign-language interpreter, in view.

Move to stage gives you the flexibility to resize your layout to focus on shared content or other participants.

See Move participants to the stage in meetings, webinars, and events and Resize the stage in meetings, webinars, and events

Choose the skin tone for your reactions—VDI

For reactions that use hand emojis, such as thumbs up, you can choose the skin tone that you prefer.
