Webex New Features with Even More Meaningful Logo

Let’s begin with the new logo. What does the curling line mean? Is it related to Webex’s latest features?
Well, Cisco explained it like this.

   1. Flexibility: You can use it wherever, whenever and on whichever device depending on your working styles.

   2. Inclusive: Everyone will get memorable experiences regardless of geography, language, or means of communication.

   3. Secure: Your privacy will be carefully guarded as Cisco claimed “Secure by design, private by default, to defend against threats no matter where you’re working”

For the new features in this version, Webex Assistant for Webex Meetings is the latest function on Webex Meeting and Event for paid users which is assisted by Artificial Intelligent (AI) to enhance its efficiency. This includes ‘Closed Caption’ and ‘Highlight’ functions using voice command with effortless activation by simply clicking an icon ‘Assistant’ only once.

‘Closed Caption’ is like subtitles but in real-time while on Webex. To clarify, when a person speaks, texts from that person’s voice will be present at the bottom of the screen. Though right now, English is the only compatible language, if you’ve installed a translation extension, it can concurrently translate the conversation to more than 100 languages. To use ‘Closed Caption’, you don’t have to ask for the host’s permission. Just click on the ‘CC’ icon once, and you’re good to go.
With ‘Highlight’, it allows users to use voice commands in order to immediately highlight sentences or phrases being spoken on each online conference participated. You can say, for example, “OK Webex, (important phrases you want to highlight), highlight that”, and like that, the phrases will be automatically noted for you.

 

In summary, the new Webex in both appearance and features represent its own product highlights of flexibility, inclusive, and secure emphasizing the usage appropriate for the current situation that though we are far apart, it’s possible to feel as if sitting side by side.
