cisco webex team external user vs member


Hi Cisco Community:


I'm looking for a link or posts regarding the difference between external participants vs team guest vs team member vs space member. 

Is the external participant or team guest using a free license?

Is there a table that compares what an external participant or a team guest can or cannot do vs a team member or a space member?

Is there a chart/table that compares a free license vs a paid license?


I'm asking these questions because there's a group of users (Group A) that need to collaborate with a group of users in another organization (Group B). If group A uses their specific organization's email address, e.g., then they will be added as external participants to group B's WebEx Teams. Another option would be for group B to create AD accounts for the group A users so that group A users have 2 accounts - and If group A uses their individually assigned accounts, then they could be added to Webex Teams as team members or space members. 


In, I found the following article regarding the various roles in teams and spaces. 


Thank you,


L. Rubio
