On July 27, the new Webex Meetings and Events experience arrives

Welcome to the new experience of Webex Meetings and Events

As of July 27, you will appreciate a new design in the Webex Meetings and Events collaboration applications, designed to make the experience of your meetings easier and more productive than ever.

See some of its excellent new features in this video:

This new design, clearer and more modern, is inspired by the way you and your team collaborate, and adds functionalities that allow you to focus on the people and the content of the meeting, which is what matters most to you, and not in the technology he uses for it.

After organizing more than 6,000 million meetings per month with millions of attendees around the world, CISCO has learned a lot and has transferred it to this new design.

Mainly that a productive and useful meeting should be aligned with the way we work today and will be done in the future. The changes you will see in Webex Meetings and Webex Events help make your meetings more intuitive, more personal and give you more power to control the experience of your meetings.

These are some of the changes that you will like the most:

Realistic video meetings

High quality video in meetings is one of the things we know you appreciate the most. Seeing other people helps build relationships, commitment and trust.

We like everything that makes it easier to get involved in a meeting, and the realistic video experience helps to focus on the people who participate in the meeting. Attendees will feel involved and productive from the moment they join the meeting.

To do this, we have taken full advantage of the space using the entire screen for face-to-face meetings through high-definition video. You will instantly be able to see who is in the meeting, check their mood and see if they are listening.

We also have new designs with options to have on the screen where to see the participants in video and the contents of the meeting. You will like to be able to alternate between different screens, share the content monitor on one side and the video on the other, or put the views side by side to see everyone and their content at the same time.

Meeting controls

The new centralized control bar puts all the essential meeting tools in one easy-to-find place, so that all the tools you need for a productive meeting are at your fingertips when you need them.

Do not worry if you prefer to see the faces of the participants more than the control tools, since the bar also hides automatically when it is not in use. Simply move the cursor to make the controls reappear. This functionality hides the technology to allow you to focus on the meeting.

To make the controls easier to find, we checked our usage statistics to determine which meeting controls our users used most. No more clicks through multiple panes and tabs to find the meeting controls you need.

Simplified scheduling and calendar management

The desktop application also provides a new pre-meeting experience that provides the quickest and easiest way to schedule and join meetings. You will have a complete view of your day just like you do in the mobile application:

The new meetings tab lists upcoming meetings and is extracted directly from the calendar and the Webex Meetings database. This works with Microsoft Outlook and Google Calendar. So now you can have a complete view of your day’s agenda without having to switch between applications. You will appreciate the experience of joining meetings faster.

In addition to the desktop and the pages, a modern and simplified view of your Webex sites is also offered. With the single panel you can easily access the most common Webex Meetings and Events tools you use. The new interface makes it easier to find recordings, meeting lists and set preferences without having to click through multiple tabs.

There are an infinity of changes that you will find useful. You can find out more about them at: collaborative help page.

We are very happy with this new, more intuitive collaboration experience. For customers who have the automatic update enabled, the new desktop application of Webex Meetings and Events will be automatically delivered starting on July 27 and will be launched to users around the world in the coming weeks.
