Looking for a Zoom alternative?Here are the best suggestions for videoconferencing apps

API *Software Video conferencing


As much of the world works from home amid COVID-19 lockdowns and ‘shelter in place’ restrictions, video call and conferencing apps have experienced a significant surge in user numbers. From top business executives to scientists and government officials, the employed across industries and roles have moved operations online and onto video conferencing apps such as Zoom.

The dark side of this change is that video calls have also become a playground for phishermen and ‘Zoombombers’. This development was recently experienced by Zoom users, who took to the internet to allege that Zoom vulnerability windows were compromised and ‘Zoom is not safe to use’.

Привет! На связи Влад из команды видеоплатформы Skyeng. Мы отвечаем за аудио и видео коммуникацию в образовательных продуктах, применяем WebRTC и реализуем фичи вокруг Video Conferencing. О реализации одной из них хочу рассказать: мы сделали видеоэффекты для веба.

Изначально, мы шли от проблемы: не все преподаватели и ученики могут найти подходящее место для занятий. Например, в квартире ремонт, кругом стройматериалы или на фоне бегают дети. Такая картина отвлекает от образовательного процесса.

Когда мы поговорили с пользователями, они подтвердили — нужна возможность заменить фон во время урока на альтернативный или размыть на звонке то, что происходит позади. Да и видеоэффекты уже есть на многих видеоплатформах, надо не отставать от трендов. 

Все сошлось. Решили делать.
