Mark - when will the Android device COP file be available for download? I work for a partner and am trying to go through our Cisco account team to obtain the file but it seems to be taking some time.
I don't understand why Cisco releases all this documentation and information about a product months before the product is even released. Then they make it hard to even obtain the product; very frustrating.
For a variety of reasons the Jabber for Android app is on new product hold. Threre is a process to go through to get the COP file, documented here: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/voicesw/ps6789/ps7290/ps11596/product_bulletin_c25-661348.html
Some of the steps require partner access to cisco.com, so if you are still having trouble getting help from your account team or Cisco channel partner, direct message me via this community and I'll keep things moving for you.
Sorry that your experiencing frustration with our process as this is not our intent. Let me know how I can help.
How can we get the COP file there is no registration via the Beta testing and we would like to test out the Jaber client for Android.
Jess, see the information in the product bulletin. http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/voicesw/ps6789/ps7290/ps11596/product_bulletin_c25-661348.html
Is there any update on the IM client for android. It has been over a year since that question was asked?
Are there immediate plans to add instant messaging capabilities to the Jabber for Android client? If so, is there any way to track progress on this, or do you have any other information?
Hi Jason, for a variety of reasons we are constrained as to what we can say about future product enhancements and our roadmap in general in a public forum. However, I can tell you that the Jabber IM for BlackBerry app is going to be available within a few weeks http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps11763/index.html and Cisco Mobile for Nokia already has IM included in the app http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps11766/index.html. This is an example of how we are enabling Cisco IM and Presence on mobile devices. Knowing that we also offer mobile apps on iPhone and Android, its reasonable to assume there will be Cisco IM and Presence coming to those platforms in the future. I know that's not the most direct answer to your question, but hopefully it helps.
I searched www.cisco.com, can not find where "Cisco Jabber for Android" can be download.
my question is:
when "Cisco Jabber for Android.apk" can be release?
if has been released, could you please pasting a web link here?
Hi, Jabber for Android is already available via Android Market. But what you need is Dual Phone Device Type for Android for your CUCM. I believe in later releases (maybe 8.5 has it) as a standard Device type. If you have older version, you need to install a .cop file which can be obtained thru your local Cisco UC SE team.
Jiri, thanks so much for providing the correct answer to Chen Xuefeng's question. I love to see our community members helping each other out. We are a much stronger community when that happens!
I urgently need either the cop file or CUCM 8.6, but none of them can be downloaded using partner CCO. Can someone provide me, at least the cop file please ? I am now using CUCM 8.0.3. Thanks in advance.
