Webex Meeting on Apple CarPlay seamless and frictionless transition between iPhone to car’s infotainment device
Continuing with the new hybrid or remote work practices learned during the COVID-19 pandemic, the new company states that Webex Meeting support for Apple CarPlay offers flexibility suitable for today’s workers.
Hybrid work is the future of work – and it’s here, now. The modern work environment is not confined to a single space or device anymore. It’s flexible, it’s mobile, it’s connected. We can seamlessly blend work into our lives with collaboration anywhere, at any time.
To take a Webex Meeting on CarPlay, users will have to follow the simple steps:
- Dail in from the iPhone by scanning a QR code.
- When in the car, connect the iPhone to CarPlay to continue the meeting. Once connected to Webex on CarPlay, users can view upcoming meetings, and join directly in audio-only mode.
- Upon arriving at the destination, you can continue with the meeting on the iPhone.
As per the announcement, Cisco will extend the CarPlay integration to include listening to past Webex recordings, so that users can catch up on any meeting while commuting to or from work, or sitting in traffic.
Apple CarPlay service allows owners of compatible car models to use their iPhones safely when on the road. With Siri support, users can answer or make audio calls, send or receive text messages, get directions, play music, and more completely hands-free.
At the WWDC 2022 event, Apple announced that the next generation of CarPlay on iOS 16 will support multiple screens within the vehicle.
