Functional changes in the Webex Meetings Virtual Desktop Software

  • The Webex Meetings Desktop Virtual Software is currently in Beta release.

  • Meetings with the Webex Meetings Virtual Desktop Software look the same as those using the Webex Meetings desktop app, but you'll notice two differences.

    • In the audio and video preview window in a VDI environment, the preview tile is solid white.

    • In a VDI environment, the meeting controls stay fixed at the bottom of your screen, layered over a white background.
