Cisco, the developers of Webex, have released a newer application called Webex Teams that does not have the same feature set as Webex Meetings. If you use Webex Teams, you will not have access to the Chat feature or Breakout Sessions. A quick way to figure out which application you have is to look at the icons; if there are colors other than blue and green in the icon, you have installed the incorrect application. See below:

  • Webex Teams will need to be uninstalled manually; the Webex Removal Tool (below) does not include Teams.
    • On Windows, use Add or remove programs to uninstall Webex.
    • On Mac, drag Webex from the Applications folder to the trash.
