Adding webcam views to Wrike Meeting

Hi guys. We're using the Wrike Meetings (Beta/Labs) feature at the moment and while there's much we like about it, after a team meeting today a number of team members asked my if we can go back to using Zoom for our team meetings so that everyone can see each other via webcam. They really miss that aspect for connection and the ability to read non-verbals, such as seeing when someone looks like they want to speak or add something, or when someone is liking (or not liking) what they are hearing.

Do you have any plans to add webcams to Wrike Meetings?

If not, why not? (And if the answer is a 'no, never', we'd like to know that asap so we can switch back to Zoom sooner rather than later.)

Or... if they answer is "Yes, webcams are coming," do you have a likely timeframe on that, because if it's only a few months away, we'll sit tight and wait for that feature and keep using Wrike Meetings.

Thanks in advance for filling me in!

Hi! I want to be transparent here - our team doesn't have it on the roadmap to add increased webcam functionality to Wrike Meetings. I don't have a very detailed answer, just that the team is prioritizing other updates right now. I know that isn't the update you're hoping for, but I hope it at least helps you plan.

Thanks for the honest answer Stephanie. I value that more than a fluffy meaningless "it's coming" response. Let your dev team know that we'll have to use Zoom instead of Wrike Meetings due solely to this lack of webcam view. It's a pity, as the rest of the functionality is excellent.

Glad it helped! And I definitely will pass on the message.

Hey Stephanie, just checking in... has "add webcam view of attendees" been added to the Wrike Meetings road map?

I know you didn't promise that at all... just wishful thinking on my part, so I thought I'd ask!

The inability to read non-verbals/facial expressions is a deal-breaker for us, in our use of Wrike Meetings (so we're still using Zoom + a Google Sheet) for the agenda and minutes).
