Webex RoomOS update: December 2019

We are fast approaching the holiday season, which is the ultimate time for getting some well-deserved rest and relaxation, and catching up with friends and family. The holiday season is also about giving. And this year, the Webex RoomOS team are gifting you with great new features that will make collaboration merry and festive, including a whiteboard improvement for DX that has been highly requested!

Annotate Anywhere

Wouldn’t it be great if you could annotate anywhere on your devices? We thought so too, so we made it happen. In this release of Webex RoomOS, we have expanded our annotation opportunities with Annotate Anywhere. Previously, you were only able to annotate on content that had been shared from a laptop or computer. Now we are making it possible to annotate on content in more ways, such as opening a file from a space, or on a webpage accessed by a web app. This allows for a more seamless collaboration experience.

Whiteboard Improvements for DX

I love the Cisco Webex DX. It’s the epitome of sleek, hardworking and smart – it enables me to connect and collaborate with people from remote corners of the world, all from the comfort of my own desk. Now, we have made it possible with real-time whiteboard collaboration between the DX and the Webex Board, through Webex Meetings, which is a feature that has been highly requested by our customers! With this new feature you can enhance your meeting presentations with visuals you can change as you go. Learn more here.

New Workflow for Easily Saving a Whiteboard Session

The best things in life are simple. The smell of coffee in the morning, hugging a loved one, the feeling of grass under your feet… And collaboration is no different – great collaboration solutions should be simple to deploy and utilize. This is why we have released a new feature that makes it easier for you to save and store your whiteboard sessions in Webex Teams spaces and through email. This new workflow equips you with new information, icons and screen displays that streamline and make explicit different actions and outcomes. Saving your work has never been easier.

New Invited Section on Participant List

Last month, we made it possible to add a participant in the cloud to your call. We have now extended this feature so that you can not only see who has joined the meeting, but also who is invited but has not yet accepted. This is also valuable in other ways – simply speaking the “invited” section will list all users and devices that have a join button and can join at any time.

That’s it for December. But keep your eyes open – a new blog entry will be published soon, going over all the highlights of 2019. Happy holidays!

One decade is coming to a close and 2020 brings in a new year and new opportunities
The future of work isn’t coming, it’s here

One decade is coming to a close and 2020 brings in a new year and new opportunities. In this busy season of holiday parties, copious amounts of shopping, and wrapping up end-of-year projects, people are also beginning to think about new resolutions and new ways to reset and reorient themselves for what this next year has in store.

At Cisco Webex, we’re doing this as well. The phrase, “Future of Work,” has been buzzing for a bit of time, but it’s time to move this from hype to reality and we’re ready. In fact, we’re already there. As we think about this coming year, and as we set goals for what we want to do as a company, now is the time to turn the “Future of Work” into today and seize the opportunities it presents to us.

In an article in Boss Magazine, Cory Treffiletti, Global Head of Marketing for Webex.com at Cisco refreshingly cuts through the sea of buzzwords related to this topic and highlights a few truly impactful trends that are driving this change in the workplace.

He calls out,

“While technology of the recent past has made businesses more productive and efficient, it tended to hamper the true human connection. Think email and even conference calls. The face-to-face interaction was missing. People are starting to realize that a call is far better than email, and a video call, even better. Picking up and reaching out to someone may never be as efficient as typing a message and hitting send, but it is more efficient when you factor in the resulting back and forth that results.”

Let’s consider this: The “Future of Work” is not five years from now, it’s tomorrow, and the next day, and the day after that. We all have a hand to play in how our businesses will run and what we want them to look like.

Check out Boss Magazine’s article on four trends to keep an eye on in the not so distant “Future of Work.”
