Known Issues and Limitations (iOS)

Audio loss when leaving the app

When using Call In or Call Back to connect to a meeting, the app disconnects you from an ongoing meeting whenever you leave the app. To remain connected to the meeting, we recommend that you remain in the app.

If you use Connect Using Internet, you can exit the app and stay connected as expected.

Autoconnect audio limitations

If your meeting’s audio type doesn’t support the audio connection type that you set in your app, automatic audio connection doesn’t work.

Automatic connection using the Internet doesn’t work if the meeting audio type is VoIP-only and the meeting isn’t a video device-enabled meeting.

Disconnect on phones after telephony is connected

If your carrier doesn’t support voice and data simultaneously, you’re disconnected after joining the audio conference through telephony.

iOS 9.x security pop-up dialog box

Users with devices running iOS 9 and later who sign in using Single Sign-On or by selecting a meeting link see a pop-up dialog asking them to “Open this page in ‘Webex.’”

Meeting details shouldn't display toll-free numbers

Despite site settings disabling toll-free number displays, the numbers appear anyway.

Proximity integration (beta)

This integration isn’t supported for Collaboration Meeting Rooms (CMR) Hybrid. It’s only supported for CMR Cloud meetings, including Personal Room meetings for CMR Cloud.

Shared video file limitations

If you join your meeting’s audio conference by phone, you can’t hear the audio from a shared media file such as a video.

If a .svs file is playing, the video position may not center if you navigate away from the app.

You can’t see the video portion of a .flv file.

"Shared content not supported" message appears

When a presenter shares a video file during a meeting, the app may show a Shared content not supported message for up to six seconds. The file eventually displays correctly.

TelePresence (TP) limitations

Although TP support is disabled by the site administrator, Webex OneTouch meeting setup still displays the TP meeting option. Users can also still start a TP meeting.

Chat with TP participants isn’t supported.

You can only view video from TP systems while in active speaker mode. If you're using your device while on a mobile data or cellular network, TP systems can't see your video.

Video callback limitations

After a video device connects using video callback, some sharing issues may occur if you share from the same video device.

After a video device connects using video callback, participants appear twice in the participant list and video strip.

Watch OS1 not supported

To use the app, upgrade to Watch OS2.

Webex VoIP disconnects when receiving phone calls

If you're using an iPhone while on a Wi-Fi or mobile data connection, or using Connect Using Internet, your VoIP audio session is disconnected if you receive a phone call. You can still reconnect to the audio session.

Known Issues and Limitations (Android)

ASUS ZenFone Crash

A crash may occur when connecting to a meeting using an ASUS ZenFone (Intel Atom CPU). This is a common known issue with Android 4.4.2 (KitKat) using an x86-based CPU. We recommend that you update your firmware.

Calendar meetings not appearing in the meeting list

If your device's language and a calendar meeting language aren't the same, you may not see the meeting in My Meetings. If you set your device language to be the same as the meeting language and open the app again, the meeting should appear in the meeting list. You can then set the device language back to your preferred language.

Calendar meetings not appearing in the meeting list

On some Samsung devices, you may not be able to see your calendar meetings in My Meetings if you're using S Planner version 3.11.57 or earlier.

We recommend that you upgrade to the latest version of the S Planner application. The app doesn't support S Planner version 3.11.57 or earlier.

Can't change the unlock screen setting

After you sign in to the app and change the unlock screen setting from None to PIN, the None and Swipe options are disabled. You can uninstall the app or clear your credentials to change your settings.

Can't use Webex Meetings in the Microsoft Intune environment

If the app isn't insatalled in the Microsoft Intune work profile, users are blocked from their Webex site:

If the app is installed in the Microsoft Intune work profile, users can't open the app:

To resolve these issues, users can change the App Protection Policies in the Microsoft Endpoint Manager Administration Center. For more info, see the Microsoft website.

Cisco Webex Meetings Server (CWMS) issues

Android devices can't join meetings using CWMS 2.6 or later. A workaround is to sign in to the application first before connecting to the meeting.

First frame of video doesn't appear

Depending on your mobile network connection, you may not see the first frame of a video file when it's shared during a meeting.

Incorrect calendar meeting password

If your meeting password contains a space, it may not be correctly displayed in the app. You can still join the meeting without more problems.

Issue when switching between VoIP and Audio Broadcast

When a video file is being shared, there's an issue with switching from VoIP to Audio broadcast several times.

Meeting details shouldn't display toll-free numbers

Despite site settings disabling toll-free number displays, the numbers appear anyway.

Performance issue when viewing a shared video file on a slower device

Older DUO-Core CPU devices may experience performance issues when viewing a shared video file.

Proximity integration (beta)

This integration isn’t supported for Collaboration Meeting Rooms (CMR) Hybrid. It’s only supported for CMR Cloud meetings, including Personal Room meetings for CMR Cloud.

Recent Personal Room meetings

Personal Room meetings joined using the Webex Meetings desktop app don't appear in the mobile app Recents screen. Only Personal Room meetings joined using your Android device are added to the Recents screen.

"Shared content not supported" message appears

When a presenter shares a video file during a meeting, the app may show a Shared content not supported message for up to six seconds. The file eventually displays correctly.

TelePresence (TP) limitations

Although TP support is disabled by the site administrator, Webex OneTouch meeting setup still displays the TP meeting option. Users can also still start a TP meeting.

Use audio and sharing documents (data) simultaneously

If you're using a CDMA network such as Sprint or Verizon, network limitations prevent you from having an audio-only call and using data services at the same time. In this case, joining the audio portion of the meeting through an audio-only call means you can't view updates to the participant list or shared presentations. If you have access to Wi-Fi or 4G networks, you may be able to use voice and data services simultaneously. Alternatively, you can use VoIP to connect to your meeting audio.

Use VoIP if you don’t see the "Connect Using Internet" (VoIP) audio option

If the Connect Using Internet (VoIP) option doesn't appear for you, then your device isn't currently supported by our VoIP solution. This can happen with older devices with lower performance processors. You can still join the audio portion of a call.


VoIP has been disabled on the original Kindle Fire because the device doesn't have a system microphone.

Video callback limitations

After a video device connects using video callback, some sharing issues may occur if you share from the same video device.

After a video device connects using video callback, participants appear twice in the participant list and video strip.

Troubleshooting

Allow the app to access your iOS calendar

We recommend letting Microsoft Outlook access your iOS calendar before letting the mobile app access your iOS calendar. To change your settings, go to Settings > Meeting List, and then enable the Office 365 Calendar.

Cached credentials

Your credentials are cached to allow an easier meeting join experience. Depending on your site type, settings control how long the following credentials are cached:

  • For Single Sign-On (SSO) sites, you’re signed out after a set time after signing in.

  • For non-SSO sites, you’re signed out after a set time after signing in, unless you connect to or schedule a meeting before the end of this period.

Contact Webex Technical Support

To access technical support, use a desktop computer to navigate to the site you’re attempting to join a meeting on. From the left navigation pane, go to Support and click the link under Contact Support.

Cross-launch a meeting from Slack and Microsoft Skype for Business

In order to cross-launch into the app from Slack or Microsoft Skype for Business, enable in-app browsing in those apps.

Difficulty locating a proximity device

Contact your IT administrator to ensure that your video devices support Webex proximity, and that it’s enabled on the video devices.

Face ID

iOS users on SSO sites or sites managed by Cisco Webex Control Hub can use their iPhone’s Face ID feature to sign back in to their sites. This follows the previous behavior for sites managed by Webex Site Administration.

Forced reinstallation of the mobile app

Application security is handled differently starting with iOS 10.3.1. When you join a meeting and are asked to Open in Webex, tap Open to join.

Incorrect notification times and missing notifications

If a meeting is cancelled, the notification for it remains until the app is opened again.

If you changed time zones and haven’t opened the app, the notification keeps the original time. We recommend that you manually open your app when you arrive in a new time zone to refresh your notification list.


Meetings are refreshed for up to seven days in advance each time the app is opened.

Limitations of Joining a Meeting from your Car

The following devices aren't supported for the Ford Applink integration:

  • Moto G5

    • XT1671

    • XT1672

    • XT1676

    • XT1677

  • Moto G5 Plus

    • XT1680

    • XT1681

    • XT1683

    • XT1684

    • XT1685

    • XT1686

    • XT1687

Meeting list synchronization

In order to see all of your upcoming meetings in My Meetings, we recommend that the calendar in your mobile device be configured to synchronize with your organization’s mail server. Contact your company’s IT administrator for instructions.

Prevent the "Open this meeting in Webex" dialog

Users can receive confirmation dialog displays when they tap to join a meeting. This means that they have to tap another dialog to join a meeting. To prevent this, users can tap and hold the join link in their meeting invitation and then tap Open in Webex. Your device remembers this selection and no longer displays the confirmation dialog.

Retrieve your username and password

If you can’t remember your username, you can try using:

  • Your full email address

  • Your network login, if your organization uses Single Sign-On

  • The first part of your email address before the domain (name@example.com)

Webex Technical Support can’t reset your password. If you can’t sign in after trying the methods above, contact your site administrator.

Simultaneous audio and data

Usually, phone networks are able to provide voice and data services simultaneously. If you can’t use voice and data in a meeting at the same time, check to see that your device is VoLTE enabled. If available, you can also use VoIP to connect your meeting audio.

Switch audio to your connected device on iOS

If haven't connected your audio, you only see output-only devices listed, such as Bluetooth or Airplay devices without microphones. In these cases, audio continues to function from the iOS device speaker, and not the selected output-only device. This feature is only supported in iOS 11 and later.

Touch ID

Touch ID only works in non-SSO sites in iOS 9.0 and later and supported Android devices. To use Touch ID on your iPhone or iPad, enable it to work with the Webex Meetings mobile app.

Turn off join meeting notifications on iOS

To turn off notifications, go to your device settings and scroll to the mobile app. Under Allow Webex to Access, tap Notifications and disable Allow Notifications.

Unsupported device message

If you see the Your device is not supported with the Cisco Webex Meetings application dialog, it means that we’ve found critical issues with your device. We don’t recommend using this device for the mobile app. Critical issues include application instability, missing system patches, or a lack of necessary components.

Unsupported devices

The Webex Meetings mobile app no longer supports Windows Phone or Blackberry 10 devices.
