Background

Daily.co is "just click" video calling links. There's no download, and no login required to join a video call. To enable 1-click video calls, Daily.co is built on top of WebRTC, an open platform backed by major tech companies like Google, Cisco and Amazon. (As an open platform, no one company controls the tech.)

Google has supported WebRTC since its inception; currently, Chrome lets us do more, in no download video calls. Firefox WebRTC support is developing robustly. In the last couple years Microsoft and Apple have moved to support WebRTC, too. We're looking forward to adding support, and more features, as these browsers bulk up their WebRTC support.
