The Share allows you to connect the Cisco Webex Room Phone to a computer, and to a screen display. Use this feature to collaborate with your coworkers and clients.

You have two ways to connect everything together:

  • Wireless sharing—Allows you to connect the devices without cables. You can use your Webex app, which allows you to share through your Cisco Webex meetings app. This requires you to pair your phone and your meetings app. If you don't have a Webex account, then you use Guest share.

    This feature is only available if your administrator configures it..

  • Cable sharing—Allows you to connect the devices with HDMI cables. Everyone can use cable sharing to collaborate outside of a Webex meeting or call. But you can use cable sharing during a Webex meeting only if your administrator configures it.

You stop sharing if you accept a call, start a Webex meeting, or unplug a cable.

You can connect your Cisco Webex Room Phone to your Cisco Webex app with Proximity pairing. This gives you the proximity enabled features on the Webex meeting and teams app.

This feature is only available if your administrator configures it.

For more information, see "Webex Teams App Automatically Connects with Room and Desk Devices" (https://help.webex.com/en-us/nliifbo/Webex-Teams-App-Automatically-Connects-with-Room-and-Desk-Devices) or "Use the Cisco Webex Meetings Desktop App" (https://help.webex.com/en-us/nqx2ohdb/Use-the-Cisco-Webex-Meetings-Desktop-App).

Guest share allows you to share content wirelessly from your Cisco Webex Room Phone without a Webex app or Webex account.

As you use Guest share, note the following items:

  • 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 the laptop but not through the phone speakers.

  • 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.

This feature is only available if your administrator configures it.
