How to Enable Live Animated Reactions in Webex Meetings

Animated reactions let participants express themselves without saying anything in a meeting or breakout session. Cheer on the speaker with the applause reaction. Or appreciate a joke with the laughing face reaction. As a presenter, you can get a sense of the audience response by asking folks to give a quick thumbs up or thumbs down.


Important Notice

  • Only the Host and Cohost are allowed to enable and disable reactions 

How do Reactions Work

  • Others see your reaction in the lower right corner of your video, when your video is in their view. When your video is not in others' view—for example when someone is sharing content or when the meeting has too many participants for the meeting window—your name and reaction appear in the lower left corner of the meeting window so that everyone knows how you're feeling
  • Reactions appear for a few seconds and then disappear automatically. Reactions cannot be seen by video device users and are not included in the meeting recording
