Messaging is available in the Webex App. Public spaces are discoverable rooms where groups of employees can collaborate across teams and business silos. Users can also create private spaces for smaller Webex teams to collaborate or send direct and group messages.
Are Webex by Cisco messages private? Does Webex save private chats?

What is the difference between Webex by Cisco and Teams? Do Webex and Teams integrate?
Webex by Cisco and Microsoft Teams are both collaboration tools widely used by many of the world’s largest companies for internal and external users. They offer more comprehensive collaboration capabilities than video conferencing tools like Zoom or Skype. Webex enables bidirectional integrations via API, meaning its tool can run inside other apps, and other apps can run in the Webex tool. One example is enabling Webex Messaging directly in Salesforce. Microsoft Teams only supports one-way integrations, meaning MS Teams users can’t access their Teams account features from within other applications and tools. Webex Meetings does integrate with Microsoft Teams, and users can initiate Webex meetings within Microsoft Teams channels.
Does Webex by Cisco have eDiscovery capabilities?
Cisco Webex Control Hub is a central management and auditing dashboard for Webex by Cisco that feeds some eDiscovery systems.

Using the reports provided in the dashboard, legal, security and compliance officers can conduct some eDiscovery investigations in Webex. Information such as user session data, meeting content and bot activity is available, although for the most insight admins must upgrade to Pro Pack for Control Hub.
