How to Use Cisco Webex Assistant Voice Commands and Keywords in a Webex Meeting

At any point during the meeting, you can switch the Webex Assistant on to enable AI note-taking capabilities. Automatic note taking means that meeting highlights are captured so you can spend less time managing the meeting and more time focused on the outcomes. Highlights are the most salient points or important moments of the meeting. Interactive voice commands and keyword phrases automatically capture important moments, making meetings more actionable.

Getting Started

Voice Commands

  • Simply ask the Webex Assistant to do things like create actions items, take notes, and even set up future meetings, with just your voice. Use the wake phrase “OK Webex” followed by a command to create a highlight.
  • You can't customize the wake phrase.
  • You can't control the volume of Webex Assistant.
