Cisco and Ford Motor Company

Webex is the first to introduce immersive meeting and audio calling in the Ford and Lincoln Digital Experience. Webex and Ford have jointly spearheaded the custom-built solution optimized for the vehicle, transforming it into a true alternative workspace apart from home or the office. It also includes Webex's AI background noise removal and provides an added layer of seamless connectivity because the app is available through the native infotainment experience, enabling Webex customers to work from anywhere without the need for their tablet, smartphone or laptop.

"Until now, professionals on the move faced a gap in connectivity, with limited options to stay productive while on the road," said Jeetu Patel, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Cisco Security and Collaboration. "By integrating Webex into Ford's vehicles, we're giving customers the choice to collaborate from anywhere, transforming vehicles into extensions of their workspace without sacrifice."

While on the move, drivers can join audio-only Webex meetings and calls effortlessly from the in-vehicle touchscreen. When the vehicle is parked, the driver can join Webex meetings and view other remote participants' video or shared content, share reactions, view the participant list and more as if they were at their desk in the office or at home. These features are all part of the Webex Suite, which provides the continuous, secure and reliable collaboration that Cisco is known for.  

"With the all-new Ford and Lincoln Digital Experience, our goal is to deliver a driver-first experience that can be customized and personalized to meet our customers' needs, whether to stay productive or entertained," said Chet Dhruna, General Manager Connect and Engage Integrated Services, Ford Motor Company. "Now, the cabin in Ford and Lincoln vehicles can be transformed into a true alternative workspace with the Webex app, plus the ability to access 5G wireless technology capability and the option to activate a Wi-Fi hot spot to connect multiple devices."

The Webex app is available to download on Google Play in vehicles equipped with the Ford and Lincoln Digital Experience, including on the all-new 2024 Lincoln Nautilus and coming soon on the new 2025 Lincoln Aviator and 2025 Ford Explorer.
