WebRTC is a free, open project that provides browsers and mobile applications with Real-Time Communications (RTC) capabilities via simple APIs. The WebRTC components have been optimized to best serve this purpose. 

Our mission: To enable rich, high quality, RTC applications to be developed  for the browser, mobile platforms, and IoT devices, and allow them all to communicate via a common set of protocols.

The WebRTC initiative is a project supported by Google, Mozilla and Opera, amongst others. This page is maintained by the Google Chrome team.


On March 24, 2015, WebRTC moved the master source repository over to Git at https://chromium.googlesource.com/external/webrtc
(check Development for more details).

WebRTC code samples are now available from github.com/webrtc/samples.
Live demos can be accessed at webrtc.github.io/samples.
