Magical experiences: Introducing the all-new Webex app for iPad
At Cisco, we believe the future of work is definitively going to be hybrid. And one of the keys to success will be providing flexibility for employees in when, where, and how they work, enabled by the best devices and apps.
To that end, our goal is that Webex natively integrates with the best platforms to create truly magical experiences for users, allowing people to work the way they choose, on their favorite devices.
Over the past 18 months, we have seen a 200% increase in Webex Meetings usage from mobile devices.* We jumped at this opportunity to build mobile-first, and created a new, dedicated Apple development and design team. I am thrilled with the results – the all-new Webex app for iPad.
Webex for iPad delivers the ultimate productivity experience with the familiarity of iPadOS, and support for native features like Split View for multitasking and Center Stage, which automatically pans the camera to keep users in view. The app supports Picture-in-Picture for video conferencing, so you can multitask while in meetings, includes the highest quality audio and video experience using native codecs, and the in-app white boarding experience is enhanced with support for Apple Pencil.
This native, modern, and delightful Webex app will be available for iPad beginning next month. We think our customers are going to love it.
The ultimate goal of our work is to provide the most platform-native and optimized video conferencing experience across Apple products, starting with the Mac – keeping our focus on user experience at the center of everything we do. With 84% of the world’s most innovative companies currently using Mac at scale, we can’t wait to show you what we build next.
We believe Apple products are truly world class and set the highest example for how products should be built for business. We value our partnership and look forward to our continued work together.
