Meetings Dark Theme

Would be great to have a match dark theme within meetings, to match up with Teams. More cohesive experience, as well more comfortable interaction with the application, by not having bight white spaces.

    I have the same problem as Thomas Lilly. I want to have the preference of WebEx opening automatically in dark theme. When will this happen or is there already a solution?

    There is still no statisfying solution for a dark theme. Yes, you can change it when you are already in a meeting, but I would like to have a setting in the preferences so that my meetings automatically open in dark theme!

    This was possible in old version of Webex, but in the newer versions this does not seem to be possible any more? Annoying!

    I don't see a "Dark Theme" in Webex Meetings - which is what my enterprise uses. I updated to the latest version, and no joy. Perhaps it's only in the new "Webex" app?

    this solution works!

    • You can now choose whether you want to view the meeting window in the standard Light Theme or the new Dark Theme, available from the View menu.

    Has there been any progress with the dark theme/mode for Meetings? I can't find any information or a solution that someone brought up.

    I do spend considerable amount of time on WebEx every day and it is a big strain on the eyes to stare at a white screen for so long. Dark Mode would be GREATLY appreciated!

    BTW - MS Teams is dark mode by default. Just saying... :-)

    Now with WxMeetings breakout from Teams, this is even more apparent. A lot of us like Teams in dark mode, but the breakout to WxMeetings is light mode which feels really strange.

    Since I am a regular user of Webex Meetings, I would request CISCO to come up with the DARK MODE theme at the earliest.

    Where is the actual solution posted???

    In addition to user eye comfort, for those of us that wear glasses, dark mode would reduce the glare reflected by our glasses. Especially during the pandemic, being able to see a speaker's eyes during meetings would provide a better experience.

    I posted about this back in 05/13/2020 in the wrong place apparently. I very much want/need this. https://community.cisco.com/t5/webex-meetings-and-teams/webex-meetings-dark-mode/m-p/4118048#M722

    I was told my item was going to be moved to the appropriate place. Seems like it never happened. I re-opened my item here after doing a search and didn't see this one. I guess a moderator can close this one if possible: https://ciscocollabcustomer.ideas.aha.io/ideas/WXCUST-I-662

    Here is the contents of my post which just reverberates what the poster put:

    My request is self explanatory. Just like WebEx teams has a dark theme (dark mode) I would love to see this extended to WebEx meetings. It would be much appreciated to avoid being blasted in the eyes with white all of the time before a meeting picks up and someone starts sharing something. The application is just too bright in my opinion, but I am biased because I used dark theme for everything and it really helps relax my eyes. I am a software developer by trade.

    It wasn't a big deal before, but now that I am on WebEx meetings all day every day due to the pandemic it would be helpful to lessen the amount of white I am staring at.
