Unlock frictionless collaboration with apps right inside Webex

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.

Users can now access third-party apps directly within the Webex App

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.

User productivity boosted with continuous workflows

Every team gets work done differently, and embedded apps expand what’s possible within Webex. For example:

  • Brainstorm together using virtual whiteboards like Miro and Mural
  • Manage projects with apps like Smartsheet
  • Collect real-time feedback during meetings with Slido

Powerful use cases from a vast ecosystem of technology partners

Here’s how some of our partners have implemented specific use cases using Webex embedded apps:

  • Recruiters can evaluate technical talent during video interviews with HackerRank
  • Leaders can align and measure team objectives and key results using Workboard
  • Presenters can gauge audience sentiment using Read
  • Webex participants de-stress and prevent meeting fatigue using Thrive Reset

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.

Easy to build and deploy apps and integrations on the secure and scalable Webex platform

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.
