What is WebRTC?

This is the generation of Technology and it is rapidly growing around the world. In this article we are going to talk about an awesome technology which is "WebRTC".

WebRTC stands for Web real-time communication which is an open-source project that enables peer-to-peer communication between browsers or an application. In simple words, WebRTC allows you to exchange any kind of media through the web (such as video, audio and data) without any required plugin or framework.

Examples of application that uses WebRTC:

  1. Google Meet

  2. Facebook Manager

  3. Discord

These application uses WebRTC to achive video calling, audio calling, and streaming over the internet.

VoIP ( Voice over internet protocol ) is used to achieve calling by using internet. It is a technology that allows you to make voice calls using a broadband Internet connection instead of a regular (or analog) phone line.

WebRTC is thus an extension of VoIP, or a manner of carrying out VoIP. Though it is a variation of VoIP that applies only to the world of Internet browsers, this is a good thing: we all tend to have easy access to an Internet browser. Many even have a browser constantly open at their work posts
