Apple to close the WebRTC circle with new Safari 11 for iOS and macOS

Posted by Nate Macleitch on June 6, 2017

Apple is closing the WebRTC circle with new Safari 11 for iOS and macOS!

Safari and WebRTC

Starting from Safari 11 you will be able to build QuickBlox video calling applications for Safari on iOS and macOS without any 3rd party plugins – just vanilla JavaScript!

So now you can use WebRTC natively on the following browsers/platforms:

  • Chrome (both desktop & mobile)
  • Firefox (both desktop & mobile)
  • Safari (both desktop & mobile)
  • iOS native
  • Android native

We are excited about it and going to do first tests once Safari 11 is shipped to public.

More WebRTC details from the Safari release notes:
