8×8 announced the addition of AI-powered video meeting capabilities to the 8×8 XCaaS platform, enabling users to access real-time AI transcriptions, smart summaries, and follow up action items for enhanced collaboration during and after meetings.

The new features highlight 8×8’s continued focus on platform innovation and delivering AI-driven contact centre and unified communications solutions to improve productivity and efficiency.

“Almost 90% of companies participating in our research see the value in deploying Generative AI meeting assistants,” says Irwin Lazar, President and Principal Analyst, Metrigy. “By bringing its 8×8 XCaaS platform AI capabilities to video meetings, 8×8 can now also help organizations improve productivity by reducing time spent in post-meeting activities such as following up on action items and summarizing key discussion points.”

  • Better tracking: Link meeting artifacts directly to CRMs, such as Salesforce, for easy, centralized access, tracking, and reporting.
  • Broader impact: Meet the needs of an increasingly global and hybrid workforce, supporting modern work environments and user expectations.
