Video chat in browser

Web Call Server allows you to embed in your web project a video chat feature that will work without installing additional software in most modern web browsers, as well as on mobile devices

A video chat involves two users: a caller and a callee. The first one initiates the connection while the other one answers the incoming call.

  1. The first user (User 1) connects to the WCS server and creates a chat room. WCS server generates an invite link for inviting a second user
  2. The first user sends an invite link to the second user (User 2) in any convenient way: by e-mail, using the messenger or social network
  3. The second user follows the invite link and joins the chat room
  4. WebRTC is exchanging audio-video streams between users
