As Webex users experience the advantages of integrated messaging, meetings and calling, they are increasingly adapting more day-to-day activities into collaboration workflows. It can be time-consuming to switch between different apps to get work done, and users want to use their applications in a streamlined experience.
Embedded apps enable third-party applications to be available directly within Webex – making work more efficient and inclusive. Users can simply select the app and start using it without having to download anything. With embedded apps, users can get more work done within a single interface, reducing context switching and maximizing collaboration. For example, when a user shares an app within Webex Meetings, everyone in the meeting can immediately see and directly interact with the content in the embedded app – without having to download the app. This approach enables a low-friction, seamless way to collaborate.
Every team gets work done differently, and embedded apps expand what’s possible within Webex. For example:
Here’s how some of our partners have implemented specific use cases using Webex embedded apps:
These are just some of the many apps available within Webex. And starting soon, we are thrilled to announce that over sixty partner integrations are coming to Webex to help you unlock frictionless collaboration right inside Webex meetings and messaging.
We’ve expanded the Webex open platform with the new Embedded Apps Framework, enabling developers to build seamless hybrid work experiences in a flexible and secure way. Webex provides all the developer tools needed to build, test and deploy embedded apps – including tutorials, documentation, and technical support.
Developers can now reach new audiences directly within Webex meetings and messaging. This approach enables end-users to easily discover and add third-party capabilities directly into their collaboration workflows.
