JaaS: the Team that Builds Jitsi Can Now Also Run it for You!
TL;DR The Jitsi team at 8×8 are proud to announce the brand new and awesome Jitsi as a Service: world’s easiest way to embed video meetings in your apps and websites! All the power of Jitsi and none of the hassle of running it. Check out JaaS now!
Ever since early last year we were proud to see a huge uptake in Jitsi adoption. Many were downloading and running it for their schools, companies and communities. Many others were simply using it on meet.jit.si.
To our great satisfaction we also saw a number of very creative teams and developers embedding Jitsi into their apps and tackling all sorts of different use cases ranging from work collaboration through education all the way to happy hours and Dungeons and Dragons sessions.
We find this absolutely exciting as we firmly believe that video meetings should be right where you need them: well integrated in the apps where you use them.
The Jitsi team at 8×8 is therefore proud to now announce the brand new and awesome Jitsi as a Service. JaaS lets you use the Jitsi iFrame API and mobile SDK to embed meetings in any web or mobile app. In addition to that it also gives you full control of meeting access through strong authentication and supplies a comprehensive set of webhooks that let your app nicely interact with the meeting. All of that comes with a very simple pricing model based on the number of users that connect to your service every month.
To see how easy it actually is to embed into a website, we asked Matt Gardner, the DevRel leader at 8×8 to try it out. Here’s the short video where Matt demonstrates how to do it.
We already have many interesting apps hosted on JaaS and we will be telling you all about them very soon! Until then, make sure you check out all that JaaS!
