Welcome to the Webex app. Take a look around to get used to the app's interface and how we talk about it.

Webex for Web
If you subscribe to Webex from your Service Provider, please note that Webex for Web isn't integrated with your Service Provider's calling. We recommend that you download and use the desktop and mobile apps for the most up-to-date features and best user experience.
Hover over the shortcut icons to access the custom shortcuts for your organization configured by your administrator.
On Windows and Mac, you'll see Help at the bottom of your spaces list. When you click you can choose from:
Keyboard shortcuts —opens the keyboard shortcuts menu.
Help Center —brings you to the Webex page on our Help site, but your administrator might customize that link to direct you to another site instead.
Your group work takes place in spaces, either in groups or in direct messages with another person. They display prominently so you can get to them whenever you need to. Your most recently active spaces are at the top. If anyone has added you to a new team or space, you'll see it here too. When someone's posted a new message in the space, you'll see the bolded space name.
You'll sometimes see icons letting you know what's happening in your spaces. These notifications give you information about new messages you've received and spaces you've been added to.
Your upcoming and ongoing meetings are always visible at the top of the spaces list, regardless of any space filters you've set.
Switch easily among your message, team, call, and meeting views. Messages appear by default, but your teams, calls, and meetings are just a click away. When you have unread messages in your spaces or teams, you'll see counters next to Messaging and Teams .
