Share makes it easy for you to share content from your laptop to a Webex meeting, an HDMI screen, or both.

You have two ways to share content:

  • Wireless sharing—Allows you to share content without cables. You collaborate with your coworkers using either your Cisco Webex App or with Guest share. This feature is only available if your administrator configures it.

  • Cable sharing—Allows you to share content with the included HDMI cables.

    Everyone can cable share outside of a 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.

You can connect your phone to Webex 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 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 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 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.

1

Tap Share . Note the pairing code that displays at the bottom of your phone display and on your connected HDMI display screen.

2

In your browser, go to devices.webex.com. Enter the pairing code.

3

Input the 4-digit PIN that appears near the top of your device phone display.


 

Enter the pairing share code and 4-digit PIN every time you access devices.webex.com. A new PIN generates every 5 minutes so enter a new one if the old PIN expires.

4

In your browser, select the site icon in your address bar and grant permission to share your screen.

5

(Optional) If you're going to share video content, select Optimize for Video for a higher frame-rate and lower resolution. This gives a more fluid video sharing experience.

6

Tap Stop Sharing when you want to stop sharing your computer screen.

Always stop sharing before you close your browser window or laptop.

Connect your phone to a computer when you want to collaborate with your coworkers. This is an easy way to share information when everyone is in the same room or when Wi-Fi isn't available.

Everyone can cable share outside of a meeting or call. But you can use cable sharing during a Webex meeting only if your administrator configures it.

Before you begin

Confirm that your phone connects to your screen display.

1

Connect the HDMI cable to the Computer port on the back of the phone. It has a computer icon.

Your administrator may connect the cable when they install the phone.

2

Connect the HDMI cable to the HDMI port on your computer.

It depends upon how your administrator configures the feature, but you may have to tap Share > Share a call to start cable sharing.

You stop sharing if you accept a call, start a Webex meeting, or unplug the cables. You may be able to tap Stop share.
