Safari 11 Support General Availability for OpenTok Platform

Safari for WebRTC general availability

 

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.
