Voxeo Labs is joining the effort to improve real-time communications between Web browsers by offering a support system for the WebRTC project currently under way at The Phono Project, a product of Voxeo Labs.
WebRTC is the brainchild of The Phono Project, which believes that the next revolution for the Internet is the ability to establish real-time connections directly between Web browsers. It has been boosted by Google’s recent release of $70 million worth of opensource coding for the world to utilize.
Voxeo Labs, according to its website, is a communications solution company that provides products for more than 150,000 developers worldwide.
The Phono Project essentially turns any Web browser into a phone, allowing users to both place and receive phone calls by inserting a few lines of Java code. It is currently available for both computers and mobile devices. In July, Phono released its “best and most stable” update for the Phono project by adding support to Adobe’s RTMFP protocol.
“Phono also acts as an XMPP client capable of sending and receiving IM messages to and from any XMPP/Google Talk user,” the website states.
