If Webex App doesn’t connect to a device automatically, you can manually connect to the device. Just search for the device in the app and then enter the PIN that appears on the device and you’re connected. If Webex App can’t find the device, you can still connect to it by using a 9-character code and then entering the PIN. The PIN just verifies that you’re connecting to the right device because you have to be close to the device to see the PIN on the screen.
