Microsoft has released a new update that finally allows users to join Cisco Webex meetings from the Rooms feature in its popular video conferencing app Teams, allowing guests to directly join.
The tech giant first announced this capability in November last year during its annual ‘Ignite’ conference.
The Teams ‘220.127.116.11’ update introduced the feature to “join Cisco Webex meetings from Teams Rooms with direct guest join,” along with “switch to video gallery layout even when content is present”.
The update also allows virtual raise hands support for attendee and controls for presenter and adjustable default volume setting for conferencing and default speaker.
Cisco has already added the ability for Webex Meetings hosts in Microsoft Teams to start meetings from the Cisco Webex Meetings messaging extension anywhere in the app.
