Its here: WebEx for your Android

You already know that Cisco WebEx Meetings for smartphones connects you to your important meetings wherever you are.


And now, its Android time!

Available as a free app at www.webex.com/mobile or the Android Market, Cisco WebEx Meetings for Android allows you to:

  • Join meetings with a click from your email, calendar, or My Meetings screen
  • View and join meetings on the WebEx home screen widget, available exclusively for Android devices
  • Schedule a meeting on the go and invite others to attend from the My Meetings screen
  • Join meeting audio over 3G or Wi-Fi, or have the WebEx meeting call your Android phone
  • View shared content and live annotations
  • Chat with attendees
  • Pass control to other presenters

Read the FAQ to learn more.


You can also read what Samsung had to say about the value of WebEx Meetings for business in their Feb 13 press release.

Cisco is redefining what you can do on a mobile phone, and keeping you connected—one meeting at a time.

So what do you think? Have you tried it? We're getting about 1,000 downloads of WebEx for Android a day...and that number is growing. Tell us if you're one of them!

Re: Its here: WebEx for your Android

Any chance to disable the phone screen button to create a webex on a Samsung phone?

Re: Its here: WebEx for your Android

Hi David,

Thanks for your question.  The WebEx Ball located on the Samsung Phone App during a call is a great feature.  With your contact's e-mail address already configured, it allows you to escalate your current call to a WebEx meeting and your contact will receive an e-mail invite.  From there, they can easily join the meeting, invite others and take advantage of WebEx features above a simple audio conference call.  If you'd rather use the audio conference feature built into the Samsung Phone App, you can click the menu icon and click "Add Call".

Thanks,

Re: Its here: WebEx for your Android

Mark,

It's a great feature, the only problem is it removes some key functionality from the phone.  That button prevents you from conferencing two calls on your phone.  Any idea on who to re-enable this functionality without having to remove the WebEx app?

Thank you

Re: Its here: WebEx for your Android

Hi David,

The functionality you are looking for is still there but was moved to the overflow menu on the Phone App.  When you are on the phone, if you click the Menu button (often to the bottom left of the phone, with 2 horizontal lines in half of a box), you'll see the "Add Call" button.  Click that and you'll get the same functionality you're expecting.  Alternatively, invite the folks into a WebEx conference.

Thanks,

Mark,

The functionality is not there, I know how to add a call, however the button to join both calls is not there.  Pressing settings brings up the add call button again.  So, I can call two different people at the same time, but can't do a 3 way conference.  Again, any chance to either remove this button or get a non-Samsung WebEx app?

Thank you,

david

Re: Its here: WebEx for your Android

Hi David,

I'm sorry you're still facing issues.  After creating the seperate call you will have two options, "Swap" and "Merge".  Press "Merge" to create the 3-way conference.  For more details, please contact Samsung support as this functionality is native to their platform.

Thanks for your continued use, support and feedback,

Re: Its here: WebEx for your Android

Mark,

I appreciate your response, however Sprint's SGS2 or at least mine doesn't do what you claim it does and it sounds that the only way to get that functionality back is to remove the WebEx app.  I'll reach out to Samsung and Sprint and see if they have an answer, but more than likely they will ask me to reach out to the developer of the app as without the app the functionality is there.

Kelli -

I think the redirection of this issue to nowhereville support forums that also don't answer the question is pretty unacceptable.  Please point us to the solution to this problem.

I never had this issue until a recent update. 

For the most part, the webex application is great.  However, taking over core functionality is a pretty terrible oversight on behalf of your team.  It is obvious that this issue needs to be addressed and I would personally like to know when and where we can find the right answer.  This is one of the few threads that shed any light on this. 

Please find myself and david.macias a link directly to the solution we are looking for.

Re: Its here: WebEx for your Android

Hi David and Daniel,

Thank you for continuing to use the WebEx app.  I am hopeful that I can address the issue that you are bringing up. I see that it started a few years ago so would you mind reiterating which solution you are looking for?  If it is about the WebEx app taking over core functionality can you be specific so that I might be able to address it accurately?  We work closely with Samsung to ensure behaviors and functionality are acceptable.

I presume you both are using the latest WebEx for Android release 4.5?

Regards,
Maureen

Re: Its here: WebEx for your Android

Looking at other threads, I see it may have to do with the merge call.  Just to be clear, the WebEx app does not impinge on any core functionality of the device. The merge call functionality was a change that Samsung did on their devices.

If this did not address your concern, please let me know.

Thanks.
