What’s new in RoomOS – March 2021
It’s officially springtime, and the days are getting lighter and warmer. We are announcing 2 new features in RoomOS this month, to make it easier to admit people into a virtual meeting room and to book a physical one. Perfect for the hybrid workplace!
Admit all from devices
Whenever people try to join a locked meeting, they are placed in the lobby to wait for the host to admit them. Previously, hosts had to let people in one by one, but we’ve made it available for hosts to admit everyone who’s waiting in the lobby with a single click. This feature is already available in the Webex app, and implementing this for Webex Room devices helps to bring the Webex experience in closer alignment. Learn more by visiting the help article.
Last year we announced the Cisco Webex Room Navigator. This intuitive, touch panel offers instant connections to video conferences, room controls, content sharing, and room booking. We are now making it possible to use the Room Navigator inside of the room to book ad-hoc meetings. This is not replacing an existing user experience, but rather adding a new and more immediate alternative to do on demand scheduling of ad-hoc meeting rooms directly from the Room Navigator. If you want to see it in action, you can see a demo here. If you need help with this, please check out the help article.
Worried about touching shared touch devices? We got you. Simply use your voice to book the room. With in-room booking, you can extend your booking or book a room for a spontaneous meeting. If the room is available, Webex Assistant books the room for you. Check out the help article here.
We kept it short and sweet for March, but stay tuned – we have a lot of good things coming.
