In most ways, Cisco Jabber for iPad works the same as the Cisco Jabber Video application for Windows and Mac computers. This article describes features unique to Jabber for iPad.

Overview of feature differences

The primary differences between Jabber for iPad and Jabber Video include the following:

  • If your Jabber Video subscription includes the optional VoIP out feature, you can use Jabber for iPad to make audio calls to landline or mobile (PSTN) phones. However, if you want to make an audio call to a phone number, you must first save the number as a contact. 
    As with Jabber Video, you can receive incoming audio calls from landline and mobile phones in Jabber for iPad by default.

  • You can view a shared presentation in Jabber for iPad, but you cannot share a presentation.
  • Any contacts or favorites you create in Jabber for iPad are not synchronized to appear in Jabber Video on a Mac or Windows computer.

The sign-in process

The information you enter when you sign in to Jabber for iPad depends on whether your Jabber Video account includes a video address and activation code, or includes a username and password.

    • If your Jabber Video account includes a video address: Enter the assigned video address as the email address in the format [10-digit video number]
