    Cisco's Webex Close to 60 Million Users, to Get New Noise-Filter Feature

    Cisco’s video-conferencing app Vibex saw 590 million participants in September and is on track to record more than 600 million this month, almost double the number recorded in March when countries began shutting down due to the epidemic. There are also plans to roll out a feature to filter out background noise, such as a barking dog or the sound of a passing car, from an ongoing meeting since the acquisition of Babble in August.

    “We will have it available to everyone Webex Users from October 30 for additional charges, “Patel said adding Cisco Be open to more acquisitions that will add new capabilities to Webex.

    After the offices started to close COVID-19, People switched from working at home to video-conferencing platforms, leading to rapid development in platforms such as Webex, Zoom, And Microsoft team.

    While the expansion in Webex user numbers began in March, it has not stopped, and a resurgent epidemic for the security and applications business, Jeetu Patel, is at an all-time high in October among Cisco’s general manager.

    Webex recorded 324 million meeting participants in March. Zoom revealed 300 million daily participants in April and 200 million in teams in April. The number may not be comparable because companies may use different methods of calculating attendees and do not disclose those methods.

    Zoom and Microsoft Refused to provide updated user numbers.

    Webex and teams were initially focused on business customers, while Zoom closed the market for everything from virtual classrooms to church services.

    Although the participants of the meeting have increased more than three-fold since the previous year, a much larger percentage of usage comes from enterprises, Cisco said.

    But Cisco is working to change this. Webex has a new product for schools that provides the ability to host a larger class, divide the class into smaller groups and bring it back.

    “We are very aggressively focused on education,” Patel said.
