What’s New

Cisco Webex Meetings WBS40.2 for iOS

See the Cisco Webex Meetings Mobile App Resources for more info on the Webex Meetings mobile app.

Mobile Participant List Search

Like the desktop app, users can search for participants from a new search bar at the top of their participant list.


These improvements to the participant list aren’t available for FedRAMP-authorized Webex offerings.

Rotate Shared Images

Users who are sharing an image can now easily rotate it if the image is displaying incorrectly. This way, users don’t have to manually change the file itself.

"Meet Now" Improvements

Users with Meet Now meetings can now tap Return to Meeting on their meeting list to return to their meetings. This functionality is similar to scheduled Webex meetings and Personal Room meetings.

Siri Shortcut Improvements

Users now have a Siri Shortcuts field in their in-app settings, with start and join meeting recommendations and one-tap access to setting up a custom Siri shortcut.

Setting up Siri shortcuts was previously restricted for Apple users. With this change, we can give users much easier access to setting up their own custom Siri commands.

30 FPS Annotation Support

iOS users who are sharing content can now send annotations at 30 FPS. This smoother frame rate provides a better meeting and sharing experience.


Sharing content at 30 FPS isn’t available for FedRAMP-authorized Webex offerings.

Cisco Webex Meetings WBS40.1 for iOS

See the Cisco Webex Meetings Mobile App Resources for more info on the Webex Meetings mobile app.

Custom Disclaimer Support

Meeting attendees can now view customized disclaimers before joining the meeting. These disclaimers are set by site administrators of the meeting's Webex site. Mobile users can expect to be exposed to the same compliance disclaimers that desktop users see.

Simple Mode is now Audio-Only Mode

Simple mode is being renamed to Audio-only mode, with an updated icon to better identify the benefits of this feature. New mobile users can now more easily discover this feature while in a meeting.

For more info about Audio-only mode, see Interact During Meetings from a Mobile Device.

"Audio Device" Wording Improvement

We renamed the option to switch between Bluetooth devices, phone, and device speakers from Audio device to Switch Speaker/Mic. This way, users can easily tell how to switch their audio output during meetings.

Video Callback Wording Improvement

The function to manually enter a video address has been renamed to Enter a Video Address to make the feature easier to find.

Cisco Webex Meetings Mobile App 39.10 (iOS)

Mobile Device Management (MDM) Appconfig Support

Site administrators can now take advantage of MDM solutions to set and manage key functions for their users' Webex Meetings mobile apps.

Several configurations that MDM managers can set include:

  • Requiring mobile users to sign in to a specific SSO site

  • Enabling or disabling app notifications

  • Enabling or disabling camera access

  • Setting up the mobile meeting calendaring source (such as Webex servers, calendar scraping, and Office 365)

  • Enabling or disabling device pairing

iPadOS Support

Users can now officially use Webex Meetings on the latest iPad OS, iPadOS 13.1.3, with no need to revert to a previous version of Webex Meetings.


Opening the Webex Meetings mobile app from the iPadOS calendar or Safari browser while using desktop mode isn't supported.

End of iOS 9.0 Support

We're officially discontinuing iOS 9.0 support. Existing users can still use their existing mobile apps, but can't upgrade their apps if they're still on a device running iOS 9.0.

Mute while Annotating Support

Users can now mute and unmute themselves when sharing content, viewing shared content, or annotating shared content, like in Webex Meetings for Android.

Dual Camera Support

Users can now share live content through their device's back camera while remaining as a video participant through their device's front camera.

Cisco Webex Meetings Mobile App 39.9 (iOS)

Simple Mode Support

iOS users can now enable Simple Mode, where users can save their device's battery by simplifying the Webex Meetings app's functions. Users can still easily access core functions such as Mute during meetings. This mode also automatically turns off sending video and sharing, allowing for more reduced battery usage.

For more info on enabling Simple mode, see: https://help.webex.com/nk72k34/.

Virtual Background Support for iPad

iPad users can now use the same virtual background feature that we included in the WBS39.8 update for iPhones.

For more info on changing your video background, see: https://help.webex.com/nk72k34/.

iPad Pro 2018 Keyboard Support

iPad Pro users can now use attached external keyboards to type in the Webex Meetings mobile app.

Cisco Webex Meetings Mobile 39.8 (iOS)

Third-Party Cross-Launch while Passing Credentials

Third-party apps that cross-launch an OAuth-authenticated user into Webex Meetings can now send credentials from the third-party apps themselves. This way, users will have the same attendee name appear in their Webex meeting's participant list, without confusion.

Annotation Tool Improvements

Mobile users are now able to draw borders around an enclosed area, then move those contents to another location within the same shared canvas.

iOS13, Dark Mode, and CarPlay Support

Our Webex Meetings mobile app is now officially supported on iOS 13.

As part of this update, we're introducing Dark Mode support on iOS. Mobile users will be able to select a default Light or Dark mode in their in-app settings, or let the system automatically decide based on environmental conditions set by the device itself.

iOS 13 will also be introducing a native calendar in its CarPlay Dashboard, and we'll be making sure that Webex Meetings can be directly cross-launched from that calendar.

For more info on joining calls and meetings using Apple CarPlay, see: https://help.webex.com/dpp4du/Use-Cisco-Webex-Meetings-Mobile-iOS#id_117862.

Virtual Background Support

iOS users are now able to select a virtual background for their self-video while participating in meetings. We'll provide a few default images, and also allow users to select their own.

Users can still blue their background instead, and will be able to make this selection while choosing a virtual background.

Cisco Webex Meetings Mobile 39.7.1 (iOS)

Mute on Entry Improvements

First-time users will no longer be muted automatically when using the Call Me or Call In audio connection options. Users connecting with internet audio will continue to be muted on entry, as before.

We have also changed the Audio & Video in-app settings to include a new Mute on Entry section for Call In and Call Me users specifically. This is in addition to the existing Mute on Entry section for internet audio. Upgrading users will retain their prior Mute on Entry preferences for internet audio, and their new Mute on Entry preferences for Call In and Call Me audio will be defaulted to off.

Skip Audio and Video Preview Improvement

For power users upgrading from 39.6 and earlier versions, if their in-app preferences are set for automatic audio connection (for example, audio connection is set to Call Me), we will automatically turn on Skip Audio and Video Preview in order to preserve their existing end-to-end experience.

Cisco Webex Meetings Mobile 39.7 (iOS)

Mobile Local Pair and Share/Move to Meeting Support

Mobile users are now able to locally pair and share content from their mobile devices before a meeting, similar to Webex Meetings desktop app users. Both cloud-registered and on-premises video devices are supported in this update.

Mobile users are also able to locally pair to a video device, and from there join a scheduled Webex meeting or Personal Room meeting.

As part of this feature, there are also in-app settings available to toggle on and off the auto-detection of nearby devices.

For more info on connecting to a video device, see: https://help.webex.com/n1jr1a2/.

Select Audio and Video Preferences Before Joining Meetings

Users can select their audio and video preferences before joining meetings, instead of doing so while in a meeting. These preferences can also be saved for future meetings.

Merged Video Options

To simplify the mobile in-meeting user experience, we merged the “Call My Video System” function into the “Find Devices” option. Users are still able to specify a particular system for connection using the “Find Devices” flow. There is no longer a “Call My Video System” option in the audio button of the meeting controls.

Clarified In-App Descriptions

iOS users will see clarified descriptions for their Webex Meetings video settings, including self-video, auto-brightness, and smart video.

Cisco Webex Meetings Mobile 39.6 (iOS)

Webex Meetings Apple CarPlay Support

iOS users with cars that support Apple CarPlay now have access to Webex Meetings from their car dashboard. Use any of our existing supported Siri commands to join Webex meetings, such as “Join next meeting using Webex” or “Call John Smith using Webex.”

Once you join, the CarPlay automobile interface displays the meeting title, a disconnect meeting button, and a mute button.

CarPlay is fully supported for cars that are enabled with SmartDeviceLink (SDL):

  • For SDL-supported cars, CarPlay users will be able to join from the car dashboard using Siri voice commands, and then see a full in-meeting Webex user interface on their car dashboard, with mute, unmute, and leave meeting capabilities.

  • For non-SDL-supported cars, CarPlay users will still be able to join from their car dashboard using Siri voice commands. However, no in-meeting Webex user interface will be made available. Instead, users will still need to use their headset or device to mute, unmute, and leave the meeting. Your audio and microphone will still be connected through the car.


We will be disabling the Add Call button in this update. Although the button will be disabled, Apple CarPlay will remain available.

Auto-Brightness Support

Similar to desktop users, iOS users now experience an auto-adjustment to their self-video brightness, based on the lighting conditions of their surroundings.

Stop Recording Support for Mobile Hosts

Mobile hosts can now hit pause/stop for their recordings while joined from mobile. Previously, we only provided pause button support.

Cisco Webex Meetings Mobile 39.5

iOS Raise Hand Support

Users are now able to raise their hand in Meetings, Events, and Training sessions.

Blur Background Support For iPhone 7 and 8 Users

In this update, showing blurred backgrounds when sending video, which was formerly supported for iPhone X only, is now supported for iPhone 7 and 8 devices as well.

Search on the In-App Global Call-in List

Mobile app users who use the call in audio are now be able to search on their in-app global call-in list, for the right country to dial. In addition, the app remembers the 3 most-recent numbers for them to easily access.

Usability Improvement

Users now receive a dialog suggesting that they disable video, when a low battery condition is detected.

Cisco Webex Meetings Mobile 39.4

In-app iOS Screen Sharing UE Improvements

iOS users are now able to launch their native screen share capabilities directly from the Webex Meetings app itself, instead of being forced to use the iOS device's native Control Center interface.

Webex Share Support

Mobile users are now able to easily find and connect to a Webex Share device that's connected to a television. The user experience follows the same Find Device flow that currently exists for Cisco Video System proximity detection.

Mobile IP Display in Site Administration Usage Reports

To align with the Cisco Webex Meetings Desktop app and to allow customers to better troubleshoot or audit their mobile meeting usage, mobile IP addresses now appear in Site Administration usage reports, similar to the desktop app.

Self-Video In-app Auto-Enable Setting

With this update, mobile users are now able to preset their self-video to automatically be enabled when joining every meeting. The default is disabled for new installations.

Move to Lobby (Available by Request)

Hosts joining from iOS can also move attendees back into the lobby from the participants list in a meeting just as they can do so from the Desktop Application. Same limitations apply. Please Move to Lobby feature detail in Cisco Webex Meetings section

Share Meeting Information Using Third-Party Apps

Similar to Android functionality, iOS users are now able to share meeting information directly using third party apps like WeChat or Google Hangouts, with an in-meeting share function.

Edit Recording List Name

Hosts are now able to edit their recording titles directly from within their in-app recording lists. Updated recording titles will show up for their attendees, if the recording is shared.

Pre-Meeting In-app Share Support

iOS users are now able to share their pre-meeting screens within the Webex Meetings app itself.

Cisco Webex Meetings Mobile 39.3

Optimized FTE Permissions Dialog

iOS users are now able to view their first-time permissions in the beginning of their initial app launch, instead of being forced to accept individual permissions during the pre-meeting and in-meeting experience.

Official O365 Exchange Meeting List Support

We have removed the “beta” tag from our Microsoft Office O365 Meeting List feature, in this update.

Google, Facebook, O365 Sign-in on the Mobile App

Similar to our Google, Facebook, O365 sign-in feature in Modern View, mobile app users now have a similar option to log into their mobile app using their Google, Facebook, or O365 account, accessible from their sign in flow.

If they haven't yet mapped the Google, Facebook, or O365 account to an existing Webex account, then the mobile app prompts the user to map the account, before continuing. This mapping is applicable to all future Modern View page sign-ins or other Webex Meeting mobile apps on other devices, as well.

This feature must first be enabled in Site Administration, and each service can be enabled or disabled separately.

If the user has already previously mapped their Google, Facebook, or O365 account to an existing Webex account, then they will be able to seamlessly sign in.

Cisco Webex Meetings Mobile 39.2

Call-in Auto-Accept on Cloud-Based Video Devices

Similar to the on-premises call-in flow, users can now call into cloud-based video devices without having to tap the device panel to accept the incoming call. This matches the Desktop app experience.

First-Time-Experience Permissions Improvement

Users are presented with all of their app permission requests in the beginning of the initial app launch, rather than being presenting with them one-by-one later in the meeting life cycle.

Improved Meeting Join Flow from Third-Party Apps

For mobile users who are cross-launching from third-party apps like WeChat or Slack, third-party app configurations may sometimes block users from redirecting to the Webex Meeting mobile app directly to launch the app. In these cases, a Webex page is launched with no alternative flow. With this update we added a simple join meeting button to that page, so that users can continue their join meeting flow.

Cisco Webex Meetings Mobile 39.1

Beta O365 Exchange Meeting List support

All mobile users are now able to configure their meeting lists to pull meetings directly from their O365 Exchange server, via their in-app settings. Previously, this feature was available “on demand” to select customers via whitelist, but with this update we will be removing that whitelist.

Face ID and Touch ID Login

iOS users connected to single sign-on (SSO) sites or sites managed by Cisco Webex Control Hub are now able to use their iPhone's Face ID and Touch ID capabilities to easily sign back into their sites. This follows the same behavior as for sites managed by Cisco Webex Site Administration.

Scheduler Invitee Limit Extended to 40

Mobile users now have their scheduler invitee limits extended from 20 to 40.

Siri Multi-Language Support

All of our existing Webex Meetings Siri commands are now supported in Spanish and French.

Launch Whiteboard File Share

iOS users are now able to conveniently launch a blank white canvas file to annotate on.


Because this feature depends on annotation support, and Webex Events doesn't support annotations, this feature is not available in Webex Events.

iPad Screen Sharing Instructions

The iPad screen sharing instructions were updated to be specific to the tablet form factor.

Video Device Callback Improvement

Previously, there was a known usability limitation where if the Webex Meeting app is connected by the operating system after 3 minutes in the background, then the callback connection to the video device was automatically disconnected. This improvement solves the problem by keeping the meeting running in this scenario.

Siri Shortcuts Support

iOS users of Webex Meetings are now able to leverage the power of Siri Shortcuts to assign their own custom Siri voice command to a specific Webex Meetings action. For example, if you frequently find yourself joining “Al's Personal Room” on a regular basis, you can now assign the voice command “Webex One” to perform the action of seamlessly joining Al's room.

WeChat Cross-Launch

WeChat users are now able to cross-launch their Webex Meetings. We've also improved our public collaboration help documentation (see https://collaborationhelp.cisco.com/article/en-us/WBX9000017255) on how to enable other third-party applications (e.g., Slack, Skype) for a similar cross-launch experience.

Cisco Webex Meetings Mobile 11.7

iPhone Orientation Detection

iOS users now have access to a smart mode, which detects the phone's orientation and turns video on or off accordingly.

For example if the phone is face down on the table, then the video is turned off. If it is facing the user, then the video is turned on.

Improved Siri Search Support

iOS users can now use certain Siri commands to bypass searches on their scheduled meetings list, and look directly for Personal Rooms to join.

View Attendee Recordings by Default

Users now have the capability to view their attendee recordings within the app enabled by default. Previously, this had to be enabled manually by the site administrator before mobile users could start using it.

Breakout Sessions for iPhones

iPhone users can now join, attend, and present content in Cisco Webex Training Breakout sessions directly from their iPhones.

This functionality was previously introduced for iPads.

Cisco Webex Meetings Mobile 11.6

Additional AR File Support

The Meetings Mobile app for iOS now supports the USDZ file format for Augmented Reality (AR) sharing.

iPad Pro 2018 Support

We are announcing official support for iPad Pro 2018.


Limitations:

  • The display is not optimized for the larger screen.

  • The iPad Pro's updated on-screen keyboard and new hardware Smart Keyboard are not yet supported.

  • Apple Pencil for annotation and whiteboard use is not yet supported.

  • Credentials and SSO using TouchID and not remembered.

iOS 12.1 Support

We are announcing official support for iOS 12.1.

Attendee Recording List Enabled for All Users

Existing mobile users now have the capability to view their attendee recordings within the app enabled by default.

Previously this had to be toggled on manually by the customer’s site admin, before mobile users could start using it.

Cisco Webex Meetings Mobile 11.5

Breakout Session for iPads

iPad users can now join, attend, and present content in Cisco Webex Training Breakout sessions directly from their iPads. iPhone support is coming in a future update.

Memorized Screen State

Mobile users now have their video maximized/minimized state remembered from meeting to meeting, instead of having it reset.

Usability Improvements

  • Mobile users now see “Follow on Twitter” and “Follow on FB” options in the About section of their Webex Meetings app.

  • Users now have all of their remaining rectangular buttons converted to the rounded style. The overflow menu in the centralized control bar now conforms to the same style.

Cisco Webex Meetings Mobile 11.4

Blurred Background Support for iOS

iOS video attendees are now able to blur their background, to remove distracting elements from their surroundings as they participate in video meetings.


This feature is available for iPhone X and newer devices.

iOS 12 Official Support

Cisco Webex Meetings Mobile iOS version 11.4 officially supports the new iOS 12 operating system.

In-app Attendee Recording List Support

Users are now able to access recordings of meetings that they've attended directly from their in-app recording list, if the host has shared the recording permission with them.

Learn more about in-meeting interactions.

Personal Room History Improvements

If iOS users sign out for the first time, they are presented with a dialogue asking if they'd like to retain their Personal Room history for future use.

Links to Augmented Reality Files

iOS users now have link access to a repository of additional 3D file images, for their Augmented Reality function.

For more information on using augmented reality, see the section on augmented reality here: https://collaborationhelp.cisco.com/article/en-us/nowvmhw.

Cisco Webex Meetings Mobile 11.3

Direct Join Into a Mobile App Meeting for all Customers

All Webex Meeting customers are now able to cross-launch directly into the Webex Meetings app from their native calendar, instead of redirecting to a mobile browser. This provides a faster join experience from mobile devices.

Ford Applink Initial Support

Ford drivers with Sync 3 are now able to view their meeting list, launch or join their Personal Room or upcoming scheduled meeting, and view key meeting information all directly from their car dashboards. This can all be done with steering wheel-activated voice commands or by tapping the dashboard directly.

Users can contact their site administrators to enable this integration.

Modernized Guest Flow Improvements for First Time Users

Mobile iOS users see a new first time mobile page experience that emphasizes the audio-only meeting join flow (toll or toll-free), over downloading the Webex mobile app. If a user opts to join the audio-only meeting, the page automatically redirects to a page that encourages the user to download the app.

In-App Meeting List Improvements

For calendar-scraped meetings, users now have access to the notes from their original calendar invitation, as well as easier visible access to their audio information, including their global call in numbers list.

If a host begins a meeting much earlier, the mobile meeting list detects that the host has launched the meeting early, and allow the invitee to join that meeting right away (instead of waiting until the appointed start time).

Callback Language Based on Device Settings

The language used in the callback prompts is now based on the local language settings on the Android device that is asking the meeting to call back. Previously, the language was based on the country code. All 16 Webex-supported languages are covered.

Cisco Webex Meetings Mobile 11.2

OAuth Login Duration Support

SSO and non-SSO mobile users can now take advantage of a new OAuth-based sign-in design which allows mobile users to remain signed in for up to 2 months at a time, without being signed out. The duration of the signed-in time is configurable.

In addition, non-SSO site users continue to remain signed in if they are active app users, with automatic renewal logic.

Note: CI Sites require Webex Mobile Meetings version 11.4 or later for OAuth support.

Personal Room History Improvements

iOS users who have opted to retain their Personal Room history are now able to access their history from multiple sites.

Video Support for Webex Events Panelists

iOS users who attend a session as an Events panelist are now able to turn on their video, if the event host allows that panelist to be displayed on video in the session.

Cisco Webex Meetings Mobile 11.1

First Time Join Improvements

  • Users who don't have a mobile app installed, who cross-launch from an invitation on their native device calendar, see a second option to join the audio-only meeting without having to install a mobile app. This is not dependent on version 11.1 of the app,

  • Users who choose to install the mobile app, who cross-launch from an invitation on their native device calendar, are able to join the meeting immediately after they install the app, instead of having to navigate back to their calendar. This is dependent on version 11.1 of the app.

These features are available only for sites with the following versions:

  • WBS31.28 or later

  • WBS32.16 or later

  • WBS33.3 or later

Ford Applink Official Initial Support Announcement

We previously announced the official support of Ford Applink integration with Webex Meetings. We have now deferred the update of this new feature to a later update.

For more information on joining a Cisco Webex meeting on your iOS device, see https://collaborationhelp.cisco.com/article/dpp4du#topic_27F7E72678EB3F316FBAF2501A3FEDDA.

Annotations Support for iPhone

iPhone users are now able to annotate shared content, simultaneously in real time while desktop users are annotating on the same content.

This matches functionality previously introduced for iPad users.

For more information about interacting in a meeting on your iOS device, see https://collaborationhelp.cisco.com/article/dpp4du#topic_A9010E90D0FE542B4CFB4E2696E4F307.

Augmented Reality Share Improvements

Mobile users can now place an augmented reality (AR) object on their vertical walls. Mobile users can also now present 2 or more AR files simultaneously.

For more information about interacting in a meeting on your iOS device, see https://collaborationhelp.cisco.com/article/dpp4du#topic_A9010E90D0FE542B4CFB4E2696E4F307.

Personal Room Favorites Pinning Support

Mobile users are now able to pin and unpin their favorite Personal Rooms for easy access on their signed in home screen

Cisco Webex Meetings Mobile 11.0

Cisco Webex Branding

All mobile users now see our new logo and re-branded content throughout the product.

Annotations Support for iPad

iPad users are now able to annotate shared content, simultaneously in real time while desktop users are annotating on the same content.

Grid View Support for iPad

iPad users are now able to see a grid view layout, with up to 6 participants at a time.

Personal Room History Improvements

Users now see up to 30 recently-accessed Personal Rooms in their recently-accessed Personal Room list.

For more information, see https://collaborationhelp.cisco.com/article/dpp4du.

Cisco Webex Meetings Mobile 10.7

Cloud-Enabled Video Device and Cisco Webex Board Proximity Detection Support

Users can now use proximity detection to connect to cloud-registered Cisco Webex Board, room, and desk devices, using a callback flow. The user experience is identical to the proximity detection and callback flow for on-premises video devices, and the app will continue to support detection for both cases, transparent to the user.

Currently, this only supports the option Call My Video System.

Slide-Based Microsoft PowerPoint Content Sharing

Microsoft PowerPoint presentations are now shared in the slideshow format. This allows for a more professional presentation style.


This presentation format is supported for PPTX files only. Older PPT files continue to display in the old format.

Siri Improvements

Siri commands now have access to the recently-accessed Personal Room list, even for users who signed out of the app. In order for this new feature to work, users must first opt into the option to retain their Personal Room history.

Loud Speaker and Phone Mode Switch Support

Users can now easily switch between loudspeaker and phone mode directly from within the app. This feature is for VoIP audio only.

Remote vs Local Notifications Switch

If a customer site has enabled remote notifications, local notifications are disabled.

If a customer site has disabled remote notifications, the existing local notifications feature remains enabled.

Host Recording Share Support

When signed in, users are now able to share recording links to others via email, from their new in-app host recording list.

What's new in Cisco Webex Meetings Mobile 10.5

Augmented Reality Support

You can place, resize, and rotate a virtual object anywhere in your immediate physical area, such as a conference room desk or a factory floor. Then as a presenter you can walk around the object in real-time, showing your attendees the virtual object in a real-time setting from all angles.

Siri Improvements

You are now able to tell Siri to directly join your next scheduled Webex meeting:

  • “Call next meeting using Webex”

  • “Join next meeting using Webex”

Also, Siri is now able to detect Microsoft Outlook and Cisco Productivity Tools-scheduled Personal Room meetings.

Screen Sharing Improvements

You can now stop screen sharing directly from within the Webex iOS app.

When you tap “Start broadcast” using the iOS control panel when your Webex app is not running, you now see a message asking you to launch your Webex app as the second step.

The wording was updated in the app's screen share instructions for iPhone X.

Recently-Accessed Personal Room Improvements

You can now see up to 50 recent Personal Rooms in their recently-accessed Personal Room list (previously, the number was only up to 9).

You also now have access to an in-app settings toggle, which allows you to retain your recently-accessed Personal Rooms after signing out.

Single Source Calendar

Users now have access to in-app settings to retrieve meetings from the native device calendar only. If enabled, the app will no longer attempt to retrieve and then merge meetings from both the Webex backend and the native device calendar.

This helps to solve an occasional issue where canceled or declined meetings would appear in the in-app meeting list.

What's new in Cisco Webex Meetings Mobile 10.4

Native Device Search Support

Users can now use their native device search bar to look for scheduled Webex meetings or Personal Rooms. Searches can be by meeting title, number, site name, information, host name, email, meeting time.


Search supports a meeting list history of up to 100 meetings, and a cache of up to 50 recently accessed Personal Rooms. In addition, this history will be cleared if the user is signed out.

iOS11 Files Content Sharing Support

iOS users can now access and share content from iOS 11’s new Files App solution, including any cloud solutions, (such as Dropbox, Box, and iCloud) that the iOS user chooses to integrate with the Files app.

Screen Sharing Improvements

Users can now share their screens without having to connect to any audio. This is for cases where they want to share from their iPhone or iPad while connected to a separate audio, such as their desktop phones.

Siri Command Improvements

Users can now join their next Webex meeting or Personal room using the following commands:

“Call/Join my room using Webex” - Launches my own Personal Room.

Notes:

  • iOS OS 10+ required

  • For the original Siri commands, Personal Room meetings only support the Personal Room ID search, for example, “Call jsmith using Webex”, but a not first name or last name search, such as, “Call Jim using Webex”.

What's new in Meetings 10.3

Tap to Join

Mobile users can now join their meeting from their native device calendar by tapping an icon right beneath the topmost meeting time, instead of having to search for the meeting link in their Notes section. This functionality comes automatically with Apple OS 11.2, and is available independent of the actual Webex app version.

Siri Support for Joining Personal Rooms

We’ve improved the meeting join experience.

Users can now use Siri voice commands to launch their own Personal Room, or launch someone else's Personal Room even while outside of their Webex application.

Available Commands:

  • “Call my room using Webex” (call your own Personal Room)

  • “Join my room using Webex” (call your own Personal Room)

  • “Call next meeting using Webex” (Webex searches for a Personal Room to join in your upcoming meetings list)

  • “Join next meeting using Webex” (Webex searches for a Personal Room to join in your upcoming meetings list)

Face ID Support on Non-SSO Sites

iPhone X users can now sign into their Webex app using Face ID, on non-SSO sites.

Optimized Grid View Ordering

Users now see optimizations in the ordering of their grid view participants, based on active speaker history.

Switch Between Audio Devices

Users now have the ability to switch between their connected audio device for each meeting, for example, Bluetooth headset, Bluetooth speaker, device speaker, etc.


This feature is supported on OS 11.X and above only.

Single-Participant Meetings Ended After a Set Time

The mobile meeting app now detects when there is only a single participant in a Cisco Webex meeting, Cisco Webex event, or Cisco Webex training session. If there is only one participant, the app automatically ends the meeting after a specific number of minutes after the scheduled end time.

The number of minutes is determined by the site administration. If another attendee joins at any point before the set time, the meeting does not end.

This is to match existing behavior on the desktop application and the web app.

Handoff To Desktop Functionality

Deprecated in an upcoming update, in the upcoming WBS32.11 update we will be removing/deprecating the beta Productivity Tools-Webex mobile handoff feature due to known limitations and discovered issues. With the feature disabled, users can no longer shake their devices to hand off their mobile meeting to their desktop.

iOS 8 OS No Longer Supported

The iOS 8 operating system is no longer officially supported due to minimal usage.

What's new in Meetings 10.2

Announcement of the Removal of the Automatic Device Mute Feature

Please note: In the Meetings app version 10.0 for iOS devices, we updated a feature, Automatic Device Mute, where you could set your preferences so that your device would automatically mute for every meeting you join using PSTN audio. This feature was removed in the Meetings app version 10.1.

Share Content from a Microsoft OneDrive Business Account

Users can now share content directly from their mobile app using their Microsoft OneDrive Business accounts.

Official Support for iPhone X

The Apple iPhone X is now officially supported in this update.

Improved Video Layouts

iPhone users can now toggle their view between other attendees in a grid view layout or with an Active Speaker view layout. This feature works in landscape mode only.


This feature is not yet available for Cisco Webex Events.

View iOS Beta Sharing

Telepresence video systems or devices users can now view screens being shared using the iOS beta screen sharing function in landscape mode. Previously, only portrait mode was supported.

This feature requires iOS11.1 or later, including for viewing network-based recordings.

Usability Improvements for iPad

The common share audio dialog appearance on the iPad was changed to make it more consistent with the iPad’s native style.

Improved Default Avatar

What's new in Meetings 10.1

Removal of Automatic Device Mute Feature

In the Meetings app version 10.0 for iOS devices, we updated a feature, Automatic Device Mute, where you could set your preferences so that your device would automatically mute for every meeting you join using PSTN audio. This feature was removed in the Meetings app version 10.1.

iPhone 8 Support

With this update, we announce official support for the iPhone 8.

Improved Screen Sharing User Interface

You now see wording and visual improvements to their in-app instructions on how to set up and launch screen sharing.

View iOS Beta Sharing

Telepresence video system or device users can now view screens being shared using the iOS beta screen sharing function.

Improved View in One-on-One Meetings

For meetings where there are only two participants, the interface now provides a clearer view of the participants. Double-tap a participant’s video to maximize it.

For Cisco Webex Events and Cisco Webex Training, the participants’ avatar is displayed instead of video.

Full-Screen Preview of Video

You can now see a full-screen preview of their video, instead of a smaller, bottom-left preview box.


Non-WME-enabled sites do not support this feature.

Streamlined Calls into Video Addresses

You are now able to easily call into their video addresses by tapping on the proximity-located or recent SIP URI directly, without having to tap the top-right call link.

Easier Problem Reporting

You can now easily report problems by 3D touching your Webex app icon on the device home screen.

Upload a New Avatar Directly from the Webex Mobile App

iOS users are now able to upload a new Avatar directly from their Webex mobile app.

What's new in Meetings 10.0

Upload a New Avatar Directly from the Webex Mobile App

iOS users are now able to upload a new Avatar directly from their Webex mobile app.

Automatic Device Mute

You can now set your preferences so that your device automatically mutes for every meeting you join using PSTN audio (Call-in and Call back).


When using your device data plan, your carrier must be able to provide simultaneous voice and data, otherwise automatic mute may not work.
