About Simple Booth

Simple Booth has "invented a better way to inspire user-generated content: your own virtual photo app. Design a creative experience for participants to personalize their photos into fun digital souvenirs!"

Easily create a virtual photo booth and embed it in your Webex Event App using Simple Booth. Consider also embedding Simple Booth's Gallery and Live Feed so your attendees can browse others' photos.

Visit the Simple Booth help page for instructions and tips for creating your booth.

Create your Simple Booth

To create your photo booth, go to, create an account, and follow their step-by-step instructions to create your booth.

After you've created and customized your booth, go to the Presets page and click the Copy button next to the Capture Link field.

The Capture Link section of the Presets page.

Embed your Photo Booth in Webex Events

First, add a Web Link feature to your Event App, edit it, and enter the URL that you copied in the previous step. Make sure you uncheck the 'Open link in external browser' box so the feed embeds in your Event App's web version. You don't need to use the 'Pass Data to URL' checkbox.

The Edit Web Link modal with a link filled in.

💡 Keep in mind, to change the feature name and icon to better reflect your photo booth, simply click the Settings (⚙️) icon next to the feature's name.

Now, attendees on the Event App's web version can take and post pictures using the embedded photo booth without leaving the Event App.

Mobile app users can tap the feature to launch the photo booth in their device's default browser.

Use the embedding process described above to add another Web Link for your photo booth gallery or live feed so attendees can browse photos others have taken. Simply use the gallery or live feed link instead of the booth link.

Now you know all about embedding Simple Booth in your Event App! Make sure you encourage attendees to post their selfies on the Wall and on social media with your chosen hashtags. 🎉
