Big changes: big improvements

These latest improvements enhance these capabilities:

  • Pick up the phone:Getting an incoming Webex call, and the app is closed? No problem - the app will open immediately upon answering. The same goes for your teams and spaces!
  • Voice controls:Enter any meeting using your voice! Use either voice-to-text dictation or the device's keyboard to input meeting IDs.
  • Scan that barcode:Generate a barcode for your next meeting! Scan with your M400 Smart Glasses to enter.
  • Redial:Call back into the last meeting you joined with this new feature.
  • Customize:Hide whichever features you don't use and showcase those you do.
The Webex experience on Vuzix Smart Glasses is unbeatable.
