Add optical character recognition (OCR) to Webex Messaging iOS, iPadOS, and macOS client image viewer

Apple has added native optical character recognition to Apple Operating Systems through the Vision framework. Please add this functionality to the macOS Webex client. Here's the link to Apple's developer documentation:

I frequently receive images through Webex messaging that have require me to extract text. I currently need to save the image and then open it in another image viewer like Apple Preview. If the Vision framework is added to Webex messaging's image viewer, I would be able to extract text natively in the client and not need to clutter my downloads folder.

OS Support: iOS 15+, iPadOS 15+, and macOS 13+
