The Web App (also known as the 'web version' or 'web experience) is a browser-based version of your Event App or Community that uses the larger screen on a laptop, desktop, or tablet to offer enhanced functionality over the Webex Events Mobile App, The Web App is a great option for users who want to experience an event on a larger screen, or who simply don't have an Apple or Android device.

💡 Keep in mind, we strongly recommend the latest version of Google Chrome for the best experience. If Chrome isn't an option, Webex Events works well with up-to-date versions of Mozilla Firefox, Safari, and Microsoft Edge.

The remote experience champion

Because of a web browser's flexibility and a computer or tablet's larger screen size, the Web App is the best way for remote attendees to participate in virtual or hybrid events. The Web App leverages every single Webex Events feature with some awesome added perks!

Seamless interaction

Unlike the Mobile App, users can engage with app features like Chat, Q&A, and Polls without leaving a Live Stream. This lets you seamlessly engage your virtual audience in the middle of a session to gather feedback and foster discussion.

Attendees can even click on other features while watching a live stream, and the stream will keep playing in a small frame at the bottom of the screen.

For attendees on the go, they can send a live stream link from their mobile device to their email to quickly switch to a computer!

The web as a feature

If a website is embeddable, use the Web Link feature or a Custom Tab to embed it into your Webex Event App. Organizers have loved embedding sites like Miro, Snapbar, and Calendly to increase and enhance attendee engagement. Attendees interact directly with embedded content without having to leave the Event App or open a new browser tab! Read our For Fun articles for instructions on using these and more in your Webex Event App.

The Web Link and Custom Tab features aren't the only way to embed content! Any feature in the Webex Events Platform that uses External Links can display embedded videos, websites, images, and more.
