Add Voice & Video to Your App in 2015
By Rick Moulton, Director of Marketing
It has been over 135 years since its commercial launch, and voice still remains a killer app – because people need to talk! The non-verbal cues of voice, like tone and exclamations, are essential for making emotional connections; add video and you have a very powerful medium for live, “face-to-face” communication.
So how do YOU plan to exploit call management for your customers in 2015?
2015 is the year that you can become part of that conversation, and WebRTC looks to be the first step toward consumer productization of call management capabilities in the mobile industry.
WebRTC reduces your barrier to entry into the conversation, and we at AT&T are striving to minimize it even more. I contend that the consumer market for this technology will demand flexibility: Choices for reachability will matter; whether people are on-line / in-app or off-line / mobile they need to be reachable. Choices for addressability with the phone number they carry in their pockets or via new identities tied to your application will vary based on context. Either way, dependable feature parity on both ends of the conversation will be crucial.
Are you already exploring the latest WebRTC browsers from Google and Mozilla? How quickly can you implement and at what cost? To learn all you need to know, join us for WebRTC and Voice track at the 2015 AT&T Developer Summit as we dive into all these critical questions.
During our track sessions at the Summit we will explore some obvious and some less-than-obvious use cases for WebRTC, provide a broad perspective from a leading independent analyst as well as a panel of leading executives, and will launch you into 2015 with our own planned WebRTC tools and services to back them up.
I hope to see you there.
