When using Webex Meetings VDI, I do get the animated backgrounds.  When using the Webex App, I don't.  They are supposed to be the same thing because the Webex App right now just cross-launches a download of Webex Meetings.

Both Meetings App and Webex App need to support animated background in order to see it in cross-launch. We are working on closing that gap.

From the app experience, there should not be any difference, ie. same feature set etc.

There are some restrictions in MacOS that makes it not possible to the upgrader to remove the old Webex Meeting Desktop app. It needs to be uninstalled by the user itself, see https://help.webex.com/WBX38280/
