As a host, you can easily schedule, start, and invite others to your Cisco WebEx meetings from your device. From the "My Meetings" screen, press the 'Schedule Meeting' icon at the top of the Meeting pane, enter your meeting title, meeting password (optional) and your invitees' email addresses. Choose to start the meeting immediately or schedule for later. If you select to start the meeting immediately, you will join the meeting automatically. If you choose to schedule a meeting for later, you will be prompted to enter the date and time, and then press 'Schedule Meeting'. You will then return to the "My Meetings" screen.
To start a scheduled meeting, select the meeting from the Meeting pane, and then select 'Start Meeting'.
When you join a meeting you will be asked whether you'd like to connect to the audio using VOIP or phone. If you select VOIP, you will be immediately connected to the audio (muted automatically). If you select phone, you will be called back at a number of your choosing if your meeting site has call-back enabled. You will not be muted automatically. If you choose not to use call-back, you can click the info icon to see a list of call-in numbers. If your meeting site does not have call-back enabled, you will be able to call in at the audio prompt (depending on your site configuration).
If you are using a CDMA network, such as Sprint or Verizon, network limitations prevent you from having a voice call and using data services at the same time. In this case, joining the audio portion of the meeting through a voice call means you won't be able to view updates to the participant list or shared presentations. If you have access to Wi-Fi or 4G networks, you may be able to use voice and data services simultaneously. Alternatively, consider using VoIP (if available on your device) to connect to your meeting audio.
If the "Connect Using the Internet" (VoIP) option does not appear for you, then your device is not supported by our VoIP solution at this time. This could happen with older devices with lower performance processors, most new high-end devices support VoIP. You can still join the audio via a regular voice call.
Please note that VoIP has been disabled on the original Kindle Fire (based on Android 2.3 and Android 4.x) because the device does not have a system microphone.
VoIP is available on WBS 28, Cisco WebEx Meetings 1.2 and WBS28.9 for Training Center Meetings. Alternatively, work with your administrator to understand your site configuration.
There is a known issue with certain older devices that prevents the Cisco WebEx Meetings app from receiving audio from the device microphone using VoIP. If you experience this audio issue, please join the audio portion of the meeting via a regular voice call.
Mobile devices are unable to receive video files that are uploaded to the meeting at this time. You could try sharing the computer desktop and playing the video file in a small window, but that may result in unrealistic motion or the window may have to be very small.
Select the participant's name from the participant list. From the list, you can choose one individual or all participants to chat with. For individual chat, select the participant you want to chat with, and then enter your message in the dialogue box and hit send. Tap the "Chat with Everyone" button at the bottom of the screen to chat with all attendees, then enter your message in the dialogue box and hit send.
To transition back and forth between the presentation and chat, tap the 'x' button at the top right of the chat window to be returned to the presentation.
You can share your screen on Samsung Galaxy NotePRO and Samsung Galaxy TabPRO devices, as well as the Samsung S5, S6, Note 3, Note 4 and Note 5. This feature is not yet supported on other devices with this release. In addition, if you are the meeting host, you can pass presenter control to a computer user to share content, or a mobile user who’s device supports sharing content. Android devices can join WebEx Event Center sessions as attendees only.
If the site you are trying to join the meeting on is your company site, contact your Cisco WebEx IT administrator to determine whether mobile access can be enabled. In the meantime, please join the meeting from a computer.
Access meeting details from your "My Meetings" screen for your meetings and meetings you are invited to. Select the meeting to see more details.
