Webex VDI with one plugin, for Webex and Meetings

I use Webex VDI in Citrix.
Why is it still not possible to use the Webex app with a VDI plugin ? I have to use the VDI plugin for Webex and another plugin for Webex Meetings, although Meetings can also be started in the new app.

The release cycle for VDI has now been reduced to 2 months. Please reduce the VDI plugins.

I currently have to deploy 3 VDI plugins to thousands of machines.

Jabber JVDI -> only Works with Jabber
Webex VDI Plugin -> only works in Webx Calls ( not Meetings )
Webex Meetings VDI Plugin -> only works in Meetings

    Hi Marc,

    It looks like version 43.6 of the VDI plug in is both plug ins in one install and its installing similar to the way MS office products install where you can select the packages.

    Any idea when the native meeting capability will happen? This is crazy, my Webex app calls are optimised but my Webex Meetings not?? From a users perspective this is all one app and causing a huge amount of confusion.

    First, Webex VDI is integrated with UCM calling. You can migrate Jabber VDI to Webex VDI. There is no plan to combine JVDI client and Webex VDI plugin.

    Secondly, we are working on native meeting capability in Webex app (not cross-launch meeting application). This will solve the plugin problem. In the end, it will be only 1 plugin for both calling and meeting.
