WebRTC in the Wild
This is just one of several emerging standards that will drive technology & innovation for the next three decades. What people will do to both adopt the new standards and adapt to the new applications is exactly where predictability breaks down and the excitement begins.
Have you ever taken advantage of amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN)’s Mayday feature on the Kindle in which you click to launch a video chat with a support representative? That’s WebRTC. Ever streamed your Android’s display to a Chromecast? WebRTC. Used the Vonage mobile app? WebRTC.
All of these services use the real-time communications tech in some shape or form, and they are far from the only examples of it in the wild. WebRTC is a truly exciting new technology that many believe could revolutionize how we communicate beyond just click-to-call.
The developing standard has been around for a couple of years, but the network operators are just starting to wake up to the potential to offer it themselves and support it for their enterprise customers and developers.
