Digium Launches iOS, Android SDKs for Respoke Communications Platform
Digium has taken steps to simplify the process of adding live, in-app communications capabilities to mobile applications.
The unified communications (UC) solutions provider this week released Android and iOS software development kits (SDKs) for its Respoke communications platform. Digium said the kits are now available under a permissive open source license.
What should mobile developers expect from Digium’s SDKs? Digium said the kits include:
- Support for instant messaging.
- WebRTC voice and video calling.
- The ability to send free push notifications and calls to applications.
The Respoke SDKs handle identity, message delivery and call signaling, according to Digium. Developers can add code to manage various events, Digium said, and incorporate numerous Respoke features into their user interface.
“Until now, adding communications features and functions to native mobile applications has been difficult, requiring a dedicated team of experts as well as a significant investment in infrastructure,” Steve Sokol, Digium’s director of strategic programs, told Talkin’ Cloud. “The new Respoke SDKs eliminate the cost and complexity, making in-app communications accessible to virtually any mobile developer.”
In addition, Digium said the Respoke platform has been updated to support the features used by the SDKs.
