We continue to be excited by the customer use cases that WebRTC on Safari will enable, especially the “spontaneous” customer interaction situations we see in Retail and eCommerce, Customer Service and regulated industries – as we discussed in our previous blog. On June 22nd we held a WebRTC on Safari Developer Workshop in San Francisco to make more information available to local developers about the details of the Apple announcement and how to get started experiencing and developing WebRTC apps for Safari 11.
We are pleased to now provide this information online for everybody!
NEWS: In the San Francisco Bay area? Come to our Developer Workshop on WebRTC in Safari on June 22 @6pm.
Today we’re rolling out an exciting new beta – the OpenTok.js SDK 2.12. With this release developers can begin building beta projects that are compatible with Safari 11. That’s right, WebRTC is available in Safari in beta.
Given the large number of devices running the Safari browser, this not only provides broader device reach for TokBox customers once it releases to general availability, but introduces a new set of use cases for browser based video chat on iPhones and iPads. On Monday our CEO Scott Lomond wrote about what this development means for WebRTC. Our goal today is to help you understand how you can start leveraging the OpenTok platform and WebRTC in the Safari beta.
