Currently we support WebRTC on Google Chrome, and for all other browsers, your SDK falls back to Flash.

With the Web SDK, you can add many interesting functionality into your Web app. Some of them are:

  1. Call Center - Build a more efficient call center workflow by allowing your agents to make and receive calls via their browser and control call flows in your app using our API.
  2. Click to Call - Whether you're building a feature rich call center or adding click-to-call for your CRM app, Plivo runs seamlessly in the background to allow your users to interact via audio communication.
  3. Web Based Help Desk - Create great service experiences and workflows. Your sales and support agents can access customer info while making calls directly from their web browser.
  4. Web Conferencing - Build rich conference experiences with Plivo's out-of-the-box features including unique call flows, recording calls, and branded conference greetings, just to name a few.
