Though still in its infancy, WebRTC is poised to transform business communications.
For a quick recap – WebRTC is a platform that enables browser based communication. Developers can develop communication applications (audio/video/data) that can be run on any website or app and can be used by anyone using a standard HTML5 compliant web browser, without any additional plugins. For developers the application implementation for each browser does not require any modification, which means that one application can run on all browsers.
We are coming up with a page dedicated to webRTC and soon you will have one stop destination for all things webRTC. For now we will share 10 cool webRTC powered ideas that will change the way we use our devices to communicate.
1. Webcam Toy
This tool is simply addictive. The effects are amazing. It is a superb tool to take selfies in the office. This website lets you play with more than 70 fun camera effects and filters, take photos, download to save on your computer or post them straight to Twitter and Facebook!
This is my personal favorite. Frisb seriously lives upto their tag line “ring the world”. This website empowers you into talking with anyone around the world. Just dial a number, give a missed call and wait for the call back and you can talk with your loved ones. Imagine how this can change the way we use our mobiles. Going forward we don’t need AT&T or T-mobile to make calls. We would only need wifi to communicate with anyone in the world.
