WebRTC is one of the most widely used technologies for video conferencing. It enables users to call other people or join meetings without relying on any specific hardware or software. The following are some of the benefits of WebRTC video calls.
WebRTC has much lower delay due to the use of “synchronous relay” to immediately relay the video and audio between two browser clients. Unlike traditional video and audio conferencing, this also means there is a much lower delay.
Easy to install and use
You don’t need to install any specific software to get started with WebRTC video. It’s easy to get a video call up and running with a simple link. This means it can be used on a variety of devices and platforms.
WebRTC offers a higher quality video and audio connection, which is also resistant to packet losses, so there is almost no difference between what you see and hear and the source of the video and audio. You can also do screen sharing, instant messaging, and more capabilities.
Many video chat services don’t offer fully encrypted video and audio, but WebRTC does. WebRTC is one of the most secure options on the market, so your conversations will be safe.
WebRTC video/audio is encrypted using SRTP, so all transmissions are secure from outside actors. This is ensures the privacy of the users. This means video and audio is sent directly to the people you are connecting with. This removes any server in the middle from listening in on your calls and keeps your connection private.
With WebRTC, you don’t have to install any apps to use it on your computer, tablet, or phone. You can use WebRTC on any browser, whether it’s Chrome, Safari, Edge or Firefox.
Works on any device
One of the great things about WebRTC is that it works on any device. This means you don’t need to download an iOS app to use it on an Apple device, and you don’t need an Android app to use it on a Google device. Non-Apple devices can use it as well, as long as you’re using a browser.
Share your screen
You can share your screen and simultaneously have other share their screens. The applications for this is endless. Whether it’s teaching, sharing a presentation, providing IT support or making visual references, etc, WebRTC provides this option.
