Introducing the Fastest Join Experience in Webex Meetings
It now takes fewer steps – as few as one – and just seconds to get into your meeting. The key change in improving your join experience is the audio and video selection step now happens BEFORE you enter the meeting and the enhanced speed at which this is launched. In a large preview window, you can easily choose to join audio muted or unmuted, video on or off, or using your favorite video device. Those preferences can be stored in the desktop app so you can bypass the selection process altogether the next time you join and go straight into the meeting with just one click.
There’s also a new and easier installation process for first-time users who don’t already have the desktop app. First-time users now have the simplicity of a single and fast install that includes both the pre-meeting and in-meeting experience without any admin rights required. Clicking the join button from the invitation installs Webex while simultaneously connecting to the meeting, so the process is fast and seamless. Of course, as always, users can opt for the Webex Meetings web page or join via the Web App if they don’t want to or can’t download.
You will notice improvements to the Webex Meetings join experience starting with the meeting invitation, which features new aesthetics that call your attention to the big green button. The new aesthetics support an easy-to-read, consistent look and feel regardless of how or from where the meeting is scheduled. Just click the big green join button from your meeting list or invitation email. Your system will know whether you have the desktop app installed and automatically launch it.
The new Webex Meetings join experience is supported with the Webex Meetings 39.8 update, so be sure you are on the latest version.
