Changes to Supported Operating Systems and Browsers

In the October 2021 (41.10) release the following changes will happen:

  • Windows minimum supported OS changing to Windows 10

  • Mac minimum OS changing to MacOS 10.13

  • Web minimum supported Microsoft browser changing to the last two major releases of Microsoft Edge

We will no longer provide bug fixes or updates for earlier operating systems or earlier browsers. To have the best experience possible, plan to upgrade your operating system or install the latest browsers.

On January 31, 2022, we will officially end of life support for operating systems earlier than Windows 10 on Windows and earlier than MacOS 10.13 on Mac and end of life support for Microsoft browsers earlier than Microsoft Edge.

At that time, you will still be able to sign in to the Webex app, however some workflows may not work if you are using an unsupported operating systems or earlier browsers.

In April 2022, you will no longer be able to sign in to the Webex app using any earlier operating systems or earlier browsers.

Support Policy

Webex is proactively tested against versions of supported platform operating systems (OS): Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android. Compatibility and support for new OS versions is being provided in the following manner:

  • Compatiblity—We proactively monitor upcoming OS versions and validate Webex for compatibility with OS Beta releases. Our best effort is made to address any blocking issues or incompatibilities discovered during testing.

    Example: iOS 14 is planned to be released in September 2020. The current version of Webex for iOS is validated for compatibility with iOS 14 Beta versions. If blocking issues are discovered, they're fixed and released in an updated version of Webex for iOS before the iOS 15 GA release date. If no blocking issues are discovered, the current Webex version is considered compatible with iOS 15.


    Fixes are incorporated as per the Cisco support and maintenance policy.

  • Support—Once a new OS version is officially released, OS verification tests are performed using the latest version of Webex on the newly released version of the OS. Any discovered issues are addressed as part of the next regular feature or maintenance Webex release.

    Example: iOS 14 is released in September 2020. OS verification tests of the latest Webex for iOS are performed with the released iOS 14 GA version. Any found issues are addressed in the next release Webex release. Webex is designated as supporting iOS 14.
