Unlock Frictionless Collaboration with Apps Right Inside Webex

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.

Embedded Apps in Action

 

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 today, 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.
