Guest share from devices.webex.com allows you to share content wirelessly to any Webex registered room device. You don’t need to download a Webex app or sign-up to a Webex account so it is a great way to collaborate with your colleagues.

As you use Guest share, note the following:

  • Sharing works when the device is idle. When the device is in a call or someone else is sharing, you can’t start a share.

  • Audio plays through your laptop but not through the display screen.

  • Video streams at 1080p at 10 frames per second or 720p at 30 frames per second. Select Optimize for motion and video to ensure the best possible experience.

  • Guest share works on the latest versions of Firefox and Chrome on Windows, Mac OS, and Linux.

  • Closing the browser or the tab where devices.webex.com is open stops the share.
