Voxofon, VideoCalls.io, Video calling apps

Voxofon, a rapidly growing provider of mobile apps utilizing over-the-top (OTT) voice and messaging services, today released VideoCalls.io, a mobile and Web video chat application that enables users to connect Facebook friends via video with a touch of a button.

VideoCalls.io was built leveraging the Bit6 communications-as-a-service applications development platform. The app, available for Android and iOS devices can be downloaded for free.

“VideoCalls.io represents a leap forward in making video calls as simple as pressing a button – no more having to switch between video chat apps or trying to hunt down friends and family,” said Alexey Goloshubin, CEO/CTO at Voxofon. “Regardless of device or platform, we made VideoCalls.io simple and easy. All that users need to do is download the app, sign-in with their Facebook account, and they are ready to go. We estimate that more than 95 percent of the devices currently in use can utilize the service.”

Voxofon leveraged the capabilities of Bit6 to develop the app in just weeks

Instead of taking years to develop the underlying communications technology for VideoCalls.io from scratch, Voxofon leveraged the capabilities of Bit6 to develop the app in just weeks. Launched in March 2014, Bit6 (www.bit6.com ) is a communications as-a-service platform that helps mobile and Web application developers transform the app experience by easily integrating communication features into their mobile and Web applications with just a few lines of code.

“Similar to the way Google makes it easy for any mobile or Web application developer to integrate map functionality into their apps, Bit6’s easy-to-use APIs and software development kits (SDKs) enable developers to seamlessly integrate features such as voice/video calling, messaging and photo/video sharing,” said Goloshubin. “VideoCalls.io is the first app built and powered by Bit6 in the iTunes and GooglePlay app stores, and there are dozens of developers in the Bit6 beta program that are working on exciting Bit6-powered apps expected to rollout throughout 2015.”

Bit6 has SDKs available for iOS, Android and JavaScript

Bit6 currently has SDKs available for iOS, Android and JavaScript, connecting users, apps and devices through an ecosystem of integrated technologies including Web Real-Time Communication (WebRTC), Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) and public switched telephone network (PSTN).

Developers can download the latest SDKs, documentation, and demo apps at http://bit6.com. Visit videocalls.io to video call your Facebook friends.
