We have been busy beavers these past few months. We receive a lot of interest in our video calling product, now built around WebRTC, and we have some exciting updates that we’re pleased to present to you.

Javascript WebRTC SDK

Our WebRTC SDK for Javascript was finalised last week and is available on our documentation. The SDK allows you to add video calling to any webapp using the WebRTC API. It makes use of Quickblox signalling, and is even cross platform with iOS and Android.

iOS WebRTC SDK

The iOS WebRTC SDK was finalised a couple of days ago by our development team. Not only is this is a fully working video calling sample with WebRTC – it also has group calling! Using this code sample as a base will make it much easier to implement video calling in your iOS app.

Web — iOS video calling

There’s a reason we’re using WebRTC! It allows cross platform calling with the same API. With this in mind, we have created some cross platform samples between the Web and iOS. Here’s the Web Video Calling demo, and here’s the iOS Video Calling sample. To use it, login as different users on different devices and call the other user – we hope you’ll be pleased with the quality!

Android WebRTC SDK

Ok… this is coming soon. We’re working on it right now, but it will just as awesome as the ones above.

Conclusion

With the stability we’ve seen with these samples, we think you should be able to comfortably implement these into your apps and have a solution you can rely on. The quality was really impressive in our testing.

If you’ve made something great and want us to feature it on our Apps page or anywhere else, please do let us know. Furthermore, if you require assistance with development – get in touch with our support team via the ticketing system, or post a quickblox tagged question on StackOverflow. Happy Building!
