Overall Satisfaction with Webex Meetings
We use this product to attend town hall meetings organized by our service line. This is an excellent tool to collaborate over the meeting and to virtually connect with team members across the globe. My scope of use is currently limited to townhalls involving people from within our organization and from our clients.
- Vedio and audio.
- Screen sharing and document sharing.
- Unable to use webex on MacBook. Currently, I am able to use only on windows
- I find it has fewer collaboration options for all team members in comparison to the Microsoft team.
- It asks to install a Chrome extension, but I end up installing Webex on my laptop every time I use it.
- It reduces the cost to organize in-person town halls.
- It's a good way to engage people across geography by means of a video conference call.
- It has a web extension.
Webex is good for large scale townhall meetings, whereas team is good for teams collaboration in small teams. Webex has a chrome extension and is a light application, Teams is a heavy application and it comes with the whole set of office apps like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc. Webex calls never drop in the middle but teams call drop if you open a parallel teams client in a virtual machine.

It takes some time to log in to Webex Meeting and i have to install the desktop application every time I have to join the meeting. So I have manually installed the desktop client to overcome the hassle. I have not faced any outage with Webex Meeting till now. But the collaboration fully needs lots of privileges which are sometimes a hassle.
Currently, we use this product only for virtual town hall meetings but we continue to use Microsoft Teams as a primary means of our collaboration and day-to-day work. Webex needs to make its software more user-friendly and easy to manage privilege so that a small group of people can use it. Also, they should think about how to integrate it with email apps like teams does with Outlook. It's super easy to create team meetings with just a click of a button, but not the same with Webex.
Webex Meeting's performance is great no doubt, but occasionally I faced an issue where no audio was coming after joining a meeting. So I had to drop from the meeting and rejoin the meeting to get the audio back. I have not seen Webex being integrated with the mailing apps and would love to see if it can integrate with office apps.
It is well suited for townhalls where few people speak and others just listen. The free version is good but comes with limited functionality. It's not suited for an internal team meeting where all people have to collaborate and some people use MacBooks. It also needs a lot of privileges to share files or download files.
