Webex: The Difference between Spaces and Teams

Updated by Tech Admin

Webex Teams and Spaces integrate messaging, attachments, participant management, video calls and white-boarding in one application.


Spaces are digital workspaces/virtual rooms which enable people to create, share and collaborate.

A Space is a group of people who have been invited to work together. Spaces typically have names that describe what they’re for or are named after the people in them if they are a One to One conversation. A Space can either be standalone or with a Team. They can grow or shrink as needed.

You can create multiple spaces and you can also include people from outside your organisation.


A Team is a group of people who are connecting for a longer-term community, larger project or business goal.

Each Team has a Space called “General” that everyone belongs to. You can add any number of additional spaces to the Team to divide up projects within the Team.
