In today’s dynamic hybrid work environment, adaptability and flexibility are crucial. At Cisco, we are dedicated to empowering people to work from any device and in any environment that best meets their unique needs. Our ongoing innovations for Webex on Apple products embody this commitment, ensuring people can be productive wherever they work, on the devices they love.
Today, we are elevating the collaboration experience with the introduction of revolutionary spatial computing collaboration on Apple Vision Pro, which seamlessly blends digital content with the physical world.
We are thrilled to announce in our keynote today at Cisco Live in Amsterdam that the new Webex app, exclusively designed for Apple Vision Pro, is now available on the App Store for visionOS. It allows for an immersive and intuitive meeting experience that fills the space around you and utilizes eyes, hands, and voice, as well as Personas and Spatial Audio for the ultimate and natural experience using Apple Vision Pro. Our teams have been working on an exceptional Webex experience since Apple’s initial announcement of Vision Pro, and it was made available in Apple Vision Pro App Store on day one (February 2).
Webex for Apple Vision Pro takes full advantage of the powerful capabilities built natively into visionOS. After joining a Webex meeting, you can arrange individual participant videos and a separate shared content window that scale to life-size with intuitive pinch and drag gestures. You can use the infinite canvas of Apple Vision Pro to resize and re-arrange these windows, enabling you to collaborate without being bound by a fixed screen. Your persona is a dynamic, natural representation of your face and hand movements that allows others to see you in Webex while you’re wearing Apple Vision Pro. With these flexible layouts, multitasking has never been better.
Webex users will enjoy the familiar experience and capabilities that they have come to know and love. Features like Webex AI background noise removal, real-time translations, closed captions, live polling and Q&A by Slido, and many others, are integrated into Webex for Apple Vision Pro, allowing meeting participants to focus on what matters. And if you are on the go, you can seamlessly move meetings between Apple Vision Pro and your Mac or iPhone, by simply opening the Webex app and tapping the join button. In addition, with calendar integration, you can see all your upcoming meetings and join them with a simple pinch gesture.
Webex for Apple Vision Pro delivers a new dimension of productivity for secure spatial computing collaboration. Download the Webex app for Apple Vision Pro today to unlock effortless collaboration in the new spatial computing work environment.
In addition to Apple Vision Pro, we are excited to share that Webex for Apple TV 4K is now generally available, allowing you to collaborate from the big screen in your home or the office.
We’re proud of our team’s continued work with Apple and the delivery of innovations that support hybrid work and new ways of collaborating.
