Developers will no longer need to morph their apps to take advantage of the new WebRTC technology. Anytime Twilio Client apps are used with a WebRTC compatible browser like future versions of Google Chrome and Mozilla (News - Alert) Firefox, the Twilio client will be able to automatically manipulate the improved audio performance of the innovation. However, if the browser does not support this, the Twilio client will still run, only that it will fall back to existing browser technologies.
Speaking about the same, Jeff Lawson, the CEO and co-founder of Twilio hopes that developers will mirror the company’s dream to move the Web forward. He said, "We see WebRTC as a great advancement in Web communications, and are excited to let developers building on Twilio Client take advantage of this great new technology.“ Lawson expressed his confidence in the company’s developer ability and his eagerness into what other developers can build onto the WebRTC platform.
Since its launch in 2011, there have been incredible case studies in its use. For instance, Bumble, a web-based telephone for kids built on the Twilio Client backbone, employed voice connectivity resulting in an amazing UI specially suited for its young audience.
Twilio strategic planners took heed of the general move to mobile devices with a launch of Twilio Client iOS and Android (News - Alert) SDK that give mobile developers the ability to add voice functionality to their apps. This is good news to some developers like RingDNA. Howard Brown, CEO of RingDNA, believes that Twilio’s stable client base for iOS SDK will relieve her developers and let them focus on RingDNA cloud marketing and other features without having to meddle with telephony API.
