With the mobile market booming, there are increasingly exciting opportunities to innovate with WebRTC for mobile and an ever growing range of devices. Here at TokBox we are continuing to evolve our offerings and we’re seeing more and more of our customers building applications with embedded communications with mobile at their core. That’s why we’re looking forward to attend Mobile World Congress this year, the world’s largest industry event.
At this month’s TechTok, Streethawk CEO, David Jones, will be answering some of these questions. He’ll be talking to us about how top apps use engagement automation to drive growth, focusing on virality, look-a-likes & referral programs as well as big recurring issues including:
• User retention
• Cost of paid acquisition
• Why referral growth has been constrained until now
• Onboarding and engagement tactics
We’re happy to announce that we recently made available OpenTok mobile SDKs 2.7.0 for iOS and Android. Improvements have been made in three main areas: Xcode 7 and iOS 9 support, quality and reliability and ease of use of the library.
Now let’s jump into all the details:

In recent years, the shift in behavior towards digital, on-demand services together with the massive increase in demand for healthcare has created an unprecedented challenge for the healthcare industry. Providers have been forced to reinvent their existing care models, offering more of their services online.
In line with this, consumers are increasingly turning towards on demand healthcare services that they can access online, whenever and wherever they need them. In fact it has been estimated that by 2020, over 78 million consumers will use home health technologies. This is a dramatic increase from 14 million in 2014.
Last week we launched our new live broadcast solution Spotlight and we’re delighted to announce our first partner to build on the platform – Fox Sports. Fox have built the Fox Sports Huddle – a weekly interactive online broadcast where college football fans, players, managers and experts can come face to face on www.foxsports.com, one of the biggest sports websites in the world.
College Football is one of the most popular sports in America, and now Fox Sports Huddle brings fans even closer to the action, taking sports coverage from a simple one way stream or text chat to a large scale, interactive and engaging experience where fans can truly be part of the show. Fox Sports Huddle incorporates live feeds from the studio or the sports field together with real-time video streams from fans to create an online video talk show that can be broadcast to an online audience of up to thousands of people, all without a download or plugin. Now, Fox Sports experts and athletes can talk with their fans, not at them.
