A greater meeting experience!

You can now easily control and customise the visual layout of your screen while in a meeting. Choose how you want to see your participants and prioritise screens based on what suits you.
Webex Meeting Templates
With the new virtual work culture, meeting schedules can fill up quickly and sometimes we just don’t have time to waste. Organising the right type of meeting for your purpose is now made easy with Webex meeting templates. Templates include:
Quick Sync meeting: Hold a quick meeting with a hard stop, where problems meet purpose.This template allows you to set a timeframe for meetings so you can start and end on time and stay focused on the topic on hand.
Round table meeting: A meeting where everyone has a voice. This template has a solicited meeting structure where time limits can be allocated to participants, allowing all participants equal speaking time.
Real-time captions and Language Translation
Webex has the first In-meeting Assistant to provide live close-captions during meetings in multiple language capabilities (currently with the top 15 most spoken languages), allowing people who speak different languages or who have hearing disabilities to collaborate.
Post Meeting highlights
Webex Assistant now captures the important parts of your meetings for easy recapping. With features such as transcription and timestamping, meeting highlights and action items can be automatically emailed to all participants after the meeting.
Feedback on your presentation can now be enjoyably delivered! Webex AI now detects your participants’ natural body and facial language to provide real-time reaction Animoji’s.
When a new idea suddenly pops up or a decision needs to be made quickly, the Huddle feature allows you to quickly call up specific team members into an impromptu conversation. With Huddle, you can spontaneously work face-to-face with anyone, virtually.
From cover photos to colour themes and cobranding options, the New Webex personalisation features let you insert images and colours to fit your style at work!
Here, important messages rise to the top. Webex Assistant can now highlight and prioritise messages from certain people or subjects, allowing you to filter your messages and work more productively.
Webex Events. And now, Webex Webcast
With the capacity to host up to 25k attendees, Webex Events now has new interactive features which include Live transcriptions, Panelist lobby, Producer layouts, Moderated Q&A and Breakout sessions.
