Announcing Voice for the OpenTok Platform

VoiceUIThe OpenTok Platform started out as a real-time video communications platform, built  to take on the changing landscape of digital communications. Throughout the years, one thing has always been clear to us – every customer has their own unique set of needs. Occasionally that means that video isn’t the communications medium to lead with. Sometimes voice is the best option.

Whether on mobile devices or the web, voice-only experiences present their own unique technology and UI challenges.  That’s why the OpenTok platform has a comprehensive voice offering with those use cases in mind.
