Coming Soon! We're giving you a sneak peek of the new designs and features in Cisco Webex Teams. See the "Coming Soon" tab in What's New in Cisco Webex Teams for planned release dates.

You can't create a new space with Webex Teams on mobile or web. However, when you create the space using the desktop apps, you can use the mobile and web apps to send and receive messages in the space.


In the app header, click , choose Send a direct message, and then select Contact a person on another instant messaging application.


Enter the person's instant messaging address, and click Contact person. Then, type and send your message.


When you send a message to a person on another instant messaging app, you create a space for the two of you, group spaces aren't supported.

Some of the options are different for these type of spaces:

  • In the space, you can only flag messages .

  • In the spaces list, no status is displayed for the person.
