Mio’s custom Webex shortcut

The Mio app allows you to message users on Microsoft Teams from your Webex app.

If you have contacts who don’t use Webex because they use Microsoft Teams, what’s your current process?

Do you have to log in to Teams every time you want to chat with them? Or end up reverting to email?

Maybe you can only work synchronously with them because they don’t have Webex. Isn’t it annoying to only be able to chat with them on a scheduled call?

With Mio installed, you can connect Webex and Microsoft Teams.

Once connected, you stay in Webex, they stay in Microsoft Teams, and you message cross-platform.

Features supported include:

  • Cross-platform messages
  • Edits and deletions
  • GIFs
  • File uploads
  • Emojis and reactjis
  • Security and admin features for enterprise customers
  • You can even use message threads cross-platform.

You’ll get a Teams icon next to users who aren’t on Webex in spaces messages, DMs, and threads.
