Build secure video chat into your own app or website with the VSee Web API and Mobile SDK
Looking for an OpenTok alternative or an easy way to integrate video chat into your own application? The VSee Application Programming Interface (API) allows you to easily integrate VSee’s simple, secure video conference and screen share so you can create your own innovative telehealth platform, e-learning portal, or whatever app for mobile, web, and desktop platforms.
For a faster web integration option, get the VSee Waiting Room widget. This pre-designed waiting room workflow allows you to embed the Waiting Room as a widget or button right into your website. Please contact sales for more info.
The VSee Web API allows partners to manage their VSee users, check for user presence, as well as send commands to the VSee client to initiate calls, meetings and auto-accept calls from specific users.
VSee requires NO servers and no admin privileges, saving up to 10 times the cost of traditional video conference solutions. VSee is also HIPAA-compliant and supports complex telehealth workflows such as virtual waiting rooms and triage centers.
VSee API is fully supported on Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android to provide the best video communication experience.
