Goodbye old friend

It is with sadness that today we announce that TokBox video conferencing has breathed its last. It will always have a special place in our heart and we’ll always look back with fondness at the great memories that have been created on TokBox, from video chats with 60 people, to public posts from our friends Brick the Wine Guy and Jonah, and of course the video mails sent to “Santa”.

However, it is time to move on.  As we announced back in February, TokBox will now be focusing on OpenTok our video chat API as well as other new and innovative products such as our new HTML embed, that will make it even easier to add video chat to your website.

As we have said, this was not an easy decision to make, but we believe that this is the right one for the company and our team and we are excited to see the continued growth of OpenTok over the coming weeks.

If you are looking for an alternative to the TokBox video chat/video conferencing service then there are a couple of things that we can suggest.  Firstly, if you have a website, give our HTML embed a try.  It’s super simple to drop on to an HTML page. If that’s not for you, take a look at MyMeetingHub a group video conferencing tool powered by OpenTok.  It’s free, super easy to use and has some pretty nifty features.

Thanks again for all your support of the TokBox video conferencing tool over the years and we look forward to sharing more exciting news with you over the coming months.
