Apple has started rolling out iOS 11 and macOS 10.13, and with these releases, developers can now start to build production ready applications for Safari on the OpenTok platform, as we announced in our last post in mid-September.
With support for Safari, we’re able to further the benefits of the OpenTok platform, focused on scale, reliability and quality, empowering developers drive creativity through communications.
In June, we announced our latest beta, OpenTok.js SDK 2.12. With that release, developers could start building beta projects that are compatible with Safari 11, kicking off WebRTC availability in Safari for the first time. This release was announced at the WWDC keynote back in June, when Apple indicated WebRTC support for iOS 11.
Today, in light of Apple’s event, we’re excited to announce that WebRTC support for Safari 11 is here. With the number of devices that run the Safari browser, this provides greater device reach for TokBox customers and introduces a whole new set of use cases for browser based video chat.
