Webex App Will Soon Be Available on Apple TV for Video Conferencing

Cisco today announced that its Webex Meetings app will soon be available for the Apple TV, allowing for video conferencing on a TV.

Apple TV 2x2 Feature
tvOS 17's new Continuity Camera support will allow Webex users to wirelessly connect their iPhone or iPad to the second-generation Apple TV 4K or newer and use the device's camera and microphone to participate in meetings. After installing the Webex app on the Apple TV, users will scan a QR code on the TV with their iPhone to log in.

Apple previously announced that video conferencing apps like Webex and Zoom would launch on the Apple TV later this year. Continuity Camera is the same feature that powers Apple's own FaceTime app for video calls on tvOS 17.

Continuity camera is a good first step, but I hope Apple adds support for external cameras and mics via the usb-c port in tvOS 18.

This is great. Hopefully all of the others add the ability too. And I'll third building an ability to use wired cameras so that there can be a dedicated one instead of leaning on mobile devices sometimes not available. Resurrect the old iSight, reinvented with modern technology, add a normalized USB-C port to AppleTV and maybe power the thing via either that port of a USB port on some televisions.

What external USB-C port? The Apple TV 4K hasn't had a USB port of any kind for the last two generations.

What Apple seems to be doing by including Thread in the newest Apple TV is to adopt the upcoming Matter standard update for cameras so that Thread/Matter enabled cameras can work with Apple TV.

Still absolutely inexplicable that Apple is limiting Continuity Camera to the second-gen TV 4K. The 1st gen has an A10X, which still supports iOS 17.
