appear.in | A Trial

Posted on Mon 19 September 2016 in random

Recently I came across this awesome webRTC client called appear.in - thanks to my friend! It lets you have video chat with atmost 8 people at a time. It's interface is well built & communication is absolutely frictionless. Moreover it doesn't require you to login. All you've to do is to enter the name of the channel (or create one) which would be something like -

And then you enter the chatroom. What I liked about it, is the ease to get started. It's very intuitive which is anyway mentioned on the website. I used it for my project discussions as well.

Once done calling, just close the tab and you're good to proceed with another one. It has other amazing features like screen sharing (very useful in case you need to explain something), inbuilt messaging while video calling, etc. Moreover you can keep working with other opened tabs during the conversation - your face would be visible anyways.

While reading one of its blog post, I found out that it also lets to embed the chatroom in your website through iframe. Just embed this code -

<iframe src="https://appear.in/your-room-name" width="700" height="600" frameborder="0"></iframe>

Here's my tryout -

They're consistently developing their product and integrating a lot of features. People have used it in amazing ways which they also list on their blog.

When I searched for video calling websites on Google, I couldn't find this one on the first page. I visited almost all the websites listed on the front resulting page but none of them I found as fascinating. When I read about its embedding features, I immediately wanted to try it out.

So here we go. Join in the chatroom if you're reading this post. Find out if it seems as awesome to you as it did to me. Peace ✌
