Leave Meeting While in Audio-Only Mode

Meetings mobile app users will now be able to leave the meeting directly from their mobile Audio-Only mode screen, instead of having to exit out of Audio-Only mode first.

Share Audio and Video at 30 FPS in Android Smartphones and Tablets

Android users will now be able to share and optimize for 30 FPS video streams on their smartphones, tablets, and Chromebooks. They will also be able to select to share the audio as well, similar to desktop app users.

Webex Events Post-Session Survey Support

Show the Full Name of the Participant in the Chat Window

Android users will now be able to see the full participant name in the Chat window for the people that they're chatting with.

New Muted Indicator

Android users will now see a helpful indicator that they’re muted if they attempt to speak while muted.

High CPU Warning for Virtual Background

Android users will receive a proactive warning and a suggestion to turn off virtual backgrounds if experiencing high CPU usage. The warning may appear when using virtual backgrounds along with other running applications, resulting in high CPU usage that might impact meeting quality.

Control Hub-Managed Site Support for Alexa Voice Commands

Control Hub-managed site users can leverage Amazon Echo and Amazon Echo Show devices to perform their Alexa voice commands, including listing meetings and playing back recordings.

Profile Picture Upload for Control Hub-Enabled Sites

Control Hub-enabled site users can directly upload their profile pictures from their Android meeting apps.

Join and Switch Between Breakout Sessions

Previously Android attendees were unable to join new breakout sessions that had been dynamically created and assigned by the desktop host within the meeting. With this update, it is possible for Android attendees to switch between these newly created sessions.

Official Android R Support

This is our official update to support the new Android R operating system, across all Android devices.


This feature was made available in the 40.10 update but after the communication was sent out.

Cisco Webex Meetings 40.9 for Android

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

Known limitation: Android devices and iPhones will support only attendee capabilities in this update, not host capabilities.


Host support for iOS mobile and Android devices will be added in a future update.

Locked Lobby Support for Scheduled Webex Meetings

Mobile hosts can now lock a scheduled Webex meeting while in a meeting, similar to the Personal Room locking support. The mobile attendee experience will also have a new pre-meeting lobby experience, similar to Personal Rooms.

Facebook Portal support

Facebook Portal users will now be able to leverage their Webex Meetings app directly from all Facebook Portal devices! The experience will match what currently exists in the Android app. More details to follow.

Support Scheduled Personal Room Meetings Retrieved from the Webex Server APIs

Independent of calendar scraping and Microsoft Office 365 API calls, mobile users can now view scheduled Personal Room meetings from their in-app meeting list. If the user has configured the meeting list to retrieve meetings from the Webex backend, they receive scheduled Personal Room meetings, like with Modern View pages. This method allows users to receive scheduled Personal Room meetings without relying on third-party sources.

Microsoft Intune Native SDK Support

We’re announcing official Android mobile app support for the Microsoft Intune SDK. To access these capabilities, customers must sign up for our MDM community to direct access to our Webex Meetings app for Microsoft Intune.

If your customer is a Microsoft Intune user and needs access to the SDK, see​ Use Mobile Device Management to Configure Cisco Webex Meetings​.

Next, reach out to this mailer for additional instructions: ​ webex-android-support@cisco.com.

Meeting Controls and Overflow Menu Alignment

Android mobile users will see their meeting controls updated to match the same style as the desktop app, which is also redesigned with this same update. This includes a new unmuted state icon with no slash through it and animation when the device user is speaking.

Profile Name and Password Update Support

It’s now easier for Android mobile users to update their signed-in profile name and password directly from their app. Editing your name is available for all Webex sites. Editing your password is only available for Webex sites managed in Webex Site Administration at this time.

Android Personal Room Meeting End and Leave Alignment

Android mobile users will now experience the same Personal Room meeting end and leave meeting behavior as in iOS mobile and Desktop app. Previously, Android mobile users could only end the meeting in Personal Room meeting, without reassigning the host role to others.

Cisco Webex Meetings 40.8 for Android

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

Virtual and Blur Background Support

Webex Meetings exclusively allows Android users to select virtual or blur background backdrops while participating in their meetings. We are the first video conferencing solution to offer this feature for Android, and it's available on the Cisco Webex Meetings app for Android on tablets too!


The Android mobile devices and tablets that support virtual background in the Cisco Webex Meetings app for Android need be equipped by a 64-bit octa core (8-core) processor, RAM with 3.5G or above, and Android OS 8 (Oreo) or above.

Android Host Support for Streaming to Facebook/ YouTube /Twitter and Others

Similar to the Desktop app, Android hosts will now be able to start a stream from a third-party source such as Facebook, YouTube or IBM directly from their mobile device!

Host Mute/Un-Mute Control Improvements

Android mobile hosts will now have access to enable/disable mute on entry while in their meeting.

Attendee Pin Support

Previously, only Android hosts could pin a video. With this release, attendees can now pin any video for their own view regardless of who is speaking.

This gives better ability to pin to a desired video without shifting screens to other active speakers.

Cisco Webex Meetings WBS40.7 Android

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

Easily See Participants with Their Hand Raised

Mobile hosts can now see participants who raise their hand automatically sorted at the top of the Participants list. The order of the participants will follow the order in which they raised their hand.

If you prefer, you can sort participants by name to quickly scan the list.

Mute Status Icon

A mute/unmute status icon will now show even when the control bar is hidden. This allows users to know if they're muted without having to tap for the control bar.

BETA MSFT Intune SDK Support/MDM Improvements

MSFT Intune SDK customers will now have access to a BETA native MSFT Intune SDK build through our mobile device management (MDM) community portal. For details on how to gain access to the community, refer to this article here.

BETA Blur or Change Your Background

Mobile Android users can now blur or change their background while participating in their meetings. This gives you more privacy and removes distracting elements from your surroundings as you participate in video meetings.

Known Limitation:

  • Blurring and changing backgrounds are not supported on Cisco Webex Meetings Server sites.

Device Requirements:

  • Android OS version should not be less than 8.0 (Android O)

  • The device memory should be more than 2.5G

  • The number of CPU core should not be less than 4

  • CPU should be 64 bit

Alexa and Amazon Echo Recording Playback

Alexa and Amazon Echo users can now use voice commands to play back their Webex recordings. Click Use Voice Commands on Your Mobile Device for more details on recording playback.

Participant List View Enhancements

Previously, Android mobile participants had participant list and video disablement tied together with one setting. With this release, it will align with the desktop app behavior and only disable the participant list when the meeting host disables the participant list. We will no longer disable the video panel when the desktop app host chooses to disable their participant list.

Cisco Webex Meetings WBS40.6 Android

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

Smart Meetings for Webex Meetings Mobile App

The mobile app now detects whether a device's bandwidth or network conditions are below a certain threshold and proactively turns off sending and receiving video if it is.

If the bandwidth or network conditions improve again, then we will automatically restore receiving video. However, because of privacy reasons, we will not automatically restore sending video.

Turning off receiving video matches the existing logic on the Webex Meetings Desktop app, and so it will not be tied to any in-app setting.

Turning off sending self-video is tied to an in-app setting.

This intelligently provides the optimal meeting experience under changing conditions.

MDM Email Bypass Improvement

Customers who have an SSO login portal can now configure their mobile device management (MDM) to bypass the initial redundant email entry field from their mobile app, and take users straight to the SSO login during the sign in flow.

This simplifies the sign in flow for MDM users.

Mobile Participant List Listing and Search Improvements

Mobile app participants are now grouped beneath a common video device whenever they’re joined and connected from the same conference room. Now, users can see who else is attending a meeting under a single video device.

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


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

Webex Assistant Editing Support

After the meeting, Android users will be able to do the following if Webex Assistant for Webex Meetings was enabled and the meeting was recorded:

  • Edit transcripts

  • Edit highlights

  • Edit the title of the recording

  • Share highlights by email

  • Share read and write permission access for the Webex Assistant content with their attendess

  • Download the meeting transcript (as TXT or VTT file)

One Tap to Join "Audio-Only" Meeting

Android audio-only meeting attendees are now able to join the meeting with one tap. Default templates are improved so that the one “Tap to Join” function is more noticeable.

Default meeting templates that use the "Join by Phone" variable will see a new section "Tap to Join." If a default template does not have the variable, then the template will remain as is.

These email template variables are impacted:

%JoinByPhoneEntHtml%

%JoinByPhoneIcs_Simple%

%JoinByPhoneHtml_Simple%

%AttendeeJoinByPhoneIcs_Simple%

%JoinByPhoneText_Simple%

%JoinByPhoneEntText%

%AttendeeJoinByPhoneText_Simple%

Event and training templates will not be impacted.

The list of templates that will be updated are as follows:

  • CMR Setup Confirmation_CMR

  • Invitation to a Meeting in Progress

  • Invitation to a Meeting in Progress_PR

  • Invitation to a Meeting in Progress_PR(Productivity Tools)

  • Meeting Info for Attendee

  • Meeting Info for Attendee (Productivity Tools)

  • Meeting Info for Host

  • Meeting Information Updated

  • Meeting Invitation

  • Meeting Registration Confirmed

  • Meeting Rescheduled

  • Meeting Scheduled

  • Updated Meeting Invitation

Some Android devices will still not support the automatic meeting password entry when starting meetings from invites. In these cases, the user will still be prompted for their numeric meeting password.

Android devices that are verified to support automatic meeting password entry are: Samsung S9, Note 10, and Tab S6.


iOS join behavior will not be impacted by this change, and will continue to use their one-tap join as before.

Android Q Dark Mode Support

Android users can now set their Webex Meetings app to light mode or dark mode to continue working comfortably in their changing environment. For devices on Android Q or higher, users can also set the app to automatically follow the Android system settings when choosing between the two modes.

Samsung Bixby Voice Command Integration

Samsung mobile users can now leverage Bixby voice commands to join scheduled Webex meetings and Personal Rooms to connect to meetings on their Webex Meetings app. For example, use commands such as "Hi Bixby, start my Personal Room" without interacting with your phone directly.

Additional details will be available here.

Grid View Improvements on Android Phones and Tablets

Android tablet users will now have 3x3 grid view video support on their tablet devices in landscape mode. For portrait mode, it will be 2x4.

Android phone users will now have 3x2 grid view video support on their devices in landscape mode by default.

There will also be an in-app setting to switch the grid view layout back to 3x2, for users who prefer it.


Better layout options are available for Android tablet users.

Audio Mute/Unmute Control while Phone is Locked

Android mobile attendees are now able to mute or unmute while themselves without having to unlock their phones.

Meeting List Enhancement

Android meeting lists will automatically refresh whenever users return to the app or re-open it, at regular intervals. In addition, the previous meeting list will stay displayed while the meeting list is being refreshed.

Alexa Voice Command Support

Alexa users can now use voice commands to list out their meetings for the day and playback recordings.

See Use Voice Commands on Your Mobile Devicefor a list of the voice commands for Alexa.

Android In-App Setting to Enable or Disable Car Integration

Mobile Android users will now have access to enable or disable their car integration functions from their app. And until new users turn it on, this feature setting is turned off.

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

Smart Meetings for the Webex Meetings Mobile App

The mobile app now detects whether a device’s battery is going to run out prior to an active meeting’s scheduled end time, and proactively offers to take the user into Audio-only mode to save their battery usage.

People Insights Support

Mobile users can now see their People Insights within the app itself, instead of being redirected to a mobile browser to see the information. This allows for a more seamless and embedded experience for People Insights while on the mobile app.


The People Insights widget support isn’t available for FedRAMP-authorized Webex offerings.

In-App Settings to Edit Guest View Credentials

Mobile app users without host accounts can now edit their Guest View name and email directly from their in-app settings. This makes it easier for guest users to discover how to alter their name and email before a meeting begins.

Additional Multiple Languages Support into Meetings

Mobile users will now get additional language support (Polish, Romanian, Hungarian, Czech), with their device language settings similar to our other language support.

Additional Multiple Languages Support into Meetings

Mobile users will now get additional language support (Polish, Romanian, Hungarian, Czech), with their device language settings similar to our other language support.

Fast Mute in Low-Network Conditions with VoIP Audio

Even under low network conditions, the mobile Mute button will mute the audio immediately while the user is connected to VoIP audio.

Google Assistant and Google Home Scheduler Command Support

Android users can now use their Google Assistant and Google Home devices to schedule Webex meetings. For more details, see Use Voice Commands on Your Mobile Device.


This was previously a trial feature that we’re now releasing for all users.

Mobile users can now use Google Assistant voice commands to schedule meetings from their phones and Google Home devices, without physically interacting with their devices directly.

“List Commands” for Google Assistant

When users say, “Okay Google, talk to Webex,” our introductory phrase now includes a recommendation to say, “list commands.” Google Assistant will then list all the voice commands that are available to them. This new command is also going to be placed in the Guest View Tips and Tricks section, to better inform first-time users making it easier for new users to discover Google Assistant voice commands.

Training Breakout Support for Mobile Users on VoIP Only Audio

There was a previous limitation that mobile users who connected to VoIP only meetings couldn’t connect to a Webex Training breakout session. This gap has been addressed, and users can now join breakout sessions in VoIP only meetings allowing Android participants to attend breakout sessions independent of their audio join method.

Android Automatic Motion Setup Improvement

When users select Deny location permission and Don’t ask me again for the first time, but then enable automatic motion detection, Webex Meetings prompts a dialog with a settings button that launches the permissions dialog again.

Meeting List Source Selection Improvement

First time mobile users are going to be offered a way to set up additional third-party meeting sources when they navigate to their meeting list and no Webex meetings are found.

Remove Password and Share Meeting Information

To align with other apps and improve our security, we're no longer including the meeting password when users share the function to copy their meeting information. However, invited mobile attendees will continue to be able to join directly from their meeting invite link without having to enter their password.

Self Sign Webex for the Amazon App Store

We have enabled Self Sign Webex in the Amazon app store. Amazon app store users will have to uninstall Webex Meetings for Android and reinstall it for future upgrades.

New Minimum Version for Android Users

The minimum version for Webex Meetings for Android is now 39.11.0.239110292. Users with earlier versions will be prompted to upgrade.

Cisco Webex Meetings WBS40.2 Android

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.

Toyota SmartDeviceLink (SDL) Support

Toyota drivers can soon experience Webex Meetings on their car dashboard without having to take out their phones. Mobile users with Toyota vehicles running SDL can now use Webex Meetings on Android devices to list and join meetings directly from their car dashboard. Once in the meeting, users can easily mute, unmute, and leave their meeting. This experience and platform is similar to our existing Ford Sync 3 integration.

The integration is going to be available on the:

  • 2020 and later Corolla

  • 2020 and later Corolla Touring

Samsung Bixby Voice Command Integration

Samsung mobile users can now leverage Bixby voice commands to join scheduled Webex meetings and Personal Room meetings. For more info on using voice commands, see Use Voice Commands on Your Mobile Device.

Microsoft Office 365 Advanced Thread Protection (ATP) Safe Link Support

Android users who use Microsoft ATP safe links to protect their users from malicious email links can now still cross-launch into a Webex meeting from an email invitation. Previously, safe links would prevent them from doing this. This way, users who rely on safe links now have a seamless join experience into meetings.

For more info on ATP safe links, see the Microsoft website and search for ATP safe links.

Cisco Webex Meetings WBS40.1 for Android

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.

Support for Editing Recording Titles

Like for meeting hosts on iOS, meeting hosts on Android can now edit their recording titles and share changes with the attendees from that meeting.

Cisco Webex Meetings WBS39.11 for Android

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

Audio Switch Improvements

Users who are connected to a Bluetooth or wired headset can now easily switch to their device’s speaker or other audio options.

Cisco Webex Meetings WBS39.10 for Android

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

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

Dual Screen Mode for Samsung DeX

Users can continue to multitask on their Samsung phone while attending a Webex meeting from their monitor that’s connected through Samsung DeX mode. Users can use Webex Meetings from either their mobile or desktop screens and share content from either screen as well.

Automatically Connect to Video Devices

Users can now enable and disable automatic connection with video devices, like in Webex Meetings for iOS.

Share Pictures from a Device's Files

Users can now share any image files directly from their device's local file system. These files aren't transferred or stored within the Webex Meetings app or uploaded to our servers.

Simple Mode Support

Users can now enable Simple mode, where users can save their device's battery by simplifying the meeting experience. The core Mute function is still available while using Simple mode. This mode also automatically turns off sending video and sharing, allowing for more reduced battery usage.

The app can also automatically enable Simple mode if it detects that the device is moving faster than 25 miles per hour. For example, if a user is driving while in a meeting, Webex Meetings detects the device's movement and enables Simple mode. This setting ensures that users aren't distracted while meeting on the go.


Users can disable automatic motion detection in their app's settings.

Cisco Webex Meetings Mobile App 39.9 (Android)


These Android features aren't available for FedRAMP-authorized Webex offerings.

Pin Participant Video in the Video Panel

Microsoft OneDrive File Sharing Support

Android users are now able to share files directly through their Microsoft OneDrive shared storage accounts.

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.

Cisco Webex Meetings Mobile 39.7.1 (Android)

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 (Android)

Raise Hands Support

Similar to Webex Meetings desktop app users, Android users in meetings, events, and training sessions can raise their hands.

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/n3e90rz/.

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.

Echo Cancellation Improvements

Android devices, except for Xiao Mi 6X devices, support new echo cancellation improvements. This way, users will have an enhanced meeting experience with less echo from other users.

Cisco Webex Meetings Mobile 39.6

Stop Recording Support for Mobile Hosts

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

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 centralized control bar menu.

Smart Meetings Optimizations

Android users no longer receive sharing data while their screen is locked or turned off, to save on bandwidth and battery life.

Samsung DeX Station Improvements

Samsung DeX users are no longer disconnected from their Webex meeting when docking or undocking their phone from their DeX stations.

Cisco Webex Meetings Mobile 39.5

Search on the In-App Global Call-in List

Mobile app users who use the call in audio are now 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 Improvements

We've made the following usability improvements and changes:

  • Users see a redesigned Speaker On/Speaker Off control that clearly shows what speaker state the user is in.

  • Users now have the Move to lobby function enabled (not applicable for sites with CMR Hybrid audio enabled).

  • Starting from this update we no longer support Android OS versions 5.0 (Lollipop) and earlier. Users will continue to be able to use their prior existing Webex Meetings app versions on those older operating systems, however they will not be allowed to upgrade to the latest app version.

Cisco Webex Meetings Mobile 39.4

Google Home Device Support

Mobile users now have access to their Meeting List commands, directly from their Google Home devices. In our initial update, we support the following commands:

  • "Hey Google, list meetings"

  • "Hey Google, list my meetings"

  • "Hey Google, list upcoming meetings"

  • "Hey Google, what’s my next upcoming meeting?"

Users will be prompted whether they want to find out more details about the meeting, such as the agenda and the host name, with a follow-up question from Google Assistant.

The home device must be paired to the mobile device before use.

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.

Webex Training Breakout Sessions Support

Android users can now participate in Cisco Webex Training breakout sessions, similar to iOS users. Supported functions include audio support, viewing shares, sharing from your own mobile device, and chat.

Host functions are not yet supported.

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.

Official Mobile Text Recognition Scan Support

Using the Google AI library, mobile users are now able to scan printed or handwritten Personal Room URLs or Meeting numbers to join their next Webex Meeting.

Cisco Webex Meetings Mobile 39.3

Local Recording Indicator

Android mobile users now see an indicator that a recording has started, for local MP4 recordings.

Official O365 Exchange Meeting List Support

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

Smart Video Improvements

  • If we detect that the video is turned on, the speaker has been turned off, and there is no Bluetooth or headset connected, then we assume that users are about to hold the phone up to their ear, and automatically turn the video off.

  • When there is no ongoing video or screen share, we automatically dim the screen to save battery. In this state, users can still perform their actions without having to undim the screen first. If the device detects that the phone has moved or been picked up, then the screen will automatically light up again.

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.

Android Device Audio Improvements

Samsung S7/S7 Edge users now experience audio improvements and better echo cancellation during their Webex meetings.

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'll be adding a simple join meeting button to that page, so that users can continue their join meeting flow.

  • Macs and iPhones not yet supported

Cisco Webex Meetings Mobile 11.4

Modernized Flow Improvements for First Time Users

Users who haven't yet installed the Webex Meetings mobile app now see an improved first time experience. First time and guest users are taken to a mobile page which offers an easy way to join the audio-only meeting. After the meeting, users are shown a redirected page that offers the mobile app download for future meetings.

Users must still manually enter their access code when joining via this link.

Changes in the audio only meeting join section of their Webex Meetings email templates better clarify under what conditions users are able to join the audio-only meeting via that link. Learn more about joining meetings from Android.

This feature is dependent on the Cisco Webex Page WBS33.6, not on the mobile app version 11.4.

In-app Meeting List Improvements

Android users now see several improvements in their in-app meeting list experience, for their calendar scraped meetings:

  • View and tap on audio call-in information directly from their meeting information.

  • In-app access to the entire contents of the email and calendar invitation, so they will not have to exit the app to see it.

  • Access to join their meeting if the host has started that scheduled Webex meeting early (instead of being forced to wait until 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start time).

  • Access to join a scheduled Personal Room at any point (instead of being forced to wait until 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start time). If the host has not yet started their Personal Room, then the attendee will be taken to the lobby.

What's New in Cisco Webex Meetings 10.5

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.

Single-Participant Meetings Ended After a Set Time

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

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

  • TelePresence attendees now have a clearer view of presented shared content.

What's New in Cisco Webex Meetings 10.3

What's New in Cisco Webex Meetings 10.2

Remote Notifications

Attendees now receive join notifications outside of their mobile app on their devices when the host starts the meeting. Personal Room hosts now receive join notifications outside of their mobile app on their devices, when someone using the desktop application clicks "Notify host" while in that host's Personal Room lobby.

This feature is not currently available in site administration; it can only be enabled by request on a per-site basis.

This feature has some limitations:

  • Users only receive notifications for meetings from a site they are signed into, not other meetings in their meeting list that have been calendar scraped

  • Invitees still receive join meeting notifications, even when they decline the meeting in their Microsoft Outlook calendar

  • Notifications will not appear for countries which cannot connect to Google cloud (FCM) (e.g. China)

  • Notification language will not change if the user changes their native device language

For a complete list of limitations, see the section “Limitations and Known Issues for Join Notifications?” in the Cisco Webex Meetings for Mobile Devices article here: https://collaborationhelp.cisco.com/article/en-US/nowvmhw.
