Bistri, the easiest way to make a video call
Congratulations! You’ve just created your Bistri account, and you are happily sharing your Bistri link around you. Your Bistri link can be included in your email signature or it can be a QR code on your business cards, or a link on your LinkedIn profile. Now you are wondering what kind of experience users clicking on your link will get on a mobile device.
You can try it on your Android tablet by entering your Bistri link in the Chrome browser. After entering your nickname, automagically your computer connected on Bistri.com is ringing.
If you are using an iPhone, an iPad, the video calls are not available yet, but you can already chat, send some pictures to the Bistri user.
If the Bistri user clicks on the Video Conferencing Button, the permanent link is sent through the chat to the Mobile user. One click and he lands on the video conference room. If someone share his screen over the video conference, the Mobile user will enjoy it too.

Bistri launch the Universal Video Conferencing!
We’ve announced a few weeks ago that everyone on Bistri has his own Video Conference room, up to 4 participants.
One unique and simple link to join your conference: bistri.me/username/conf
As always on Bistri, it’s a frictionless new feature. The persons who joins your conference doesn’t need to create an account on Bistri, or install anything.
Now you can invite anyone you know in one click!
1-Select a contact, whether he is on Facebook, Google+, Yahoo…
2-Click on the Conference button
Your permanent conference link is automatically sent to your contact through the chat:
Your conference room is automatically launched in another window. You just have to decide if you want to share your Camera in SD mode, HD mode (if you choose this one, it might make your computer and/or the other person’s lag), or if you want to share your screen. Screen sharing feature is available in Google Chrome 27+ with “Enable screen capture support in getUserMedia()” flag activated in chrome://flags.
You can even join the conference two times in two different tabs:
- to share your camera
- to share your screen
This is how the support video conference room look like:
For the moment, it is a full WebRTC feature, which means that you need Firefox 22+ or Chrome 23+, it doesn’t work on IE nor Safari yet.
Bistri Universal Conferencing is coming up also with an update on the WordPress Widget. Now the link behind your Bistri Button can be your Bistri Link, or your Conference Link. Your visitors have nothing to download or install, no account to create, and don’t need to be your “friend”…
Bistri Web Desktop Notifications
Thanks to Opera and Mozilla that have made the first browsers that implemented the famous “tabs”, now all of them proposes this feature. You can read the full story of TDI on Wikipedia. Behind the scenes, the usage of the memory of your computer is not the same, but anyway, this is probably how your desktop look like now…
So what if someone is trying to call you on Bistri?
We have just implemented the browser notifications, first on Google Chrome while ago, but now, this feature is also available on Safari and Firefox. This is how it looks like :
1-Notification authorization request
1-Notification authorization request
In the future, we can dream about some Universal Notification/Push Solution, the W3C is working on it (http://www.w3.org/TR/push-api/).
But in a short term, Apple’s aficionados should enjoy Safari 7.0 to bring web notifications to OS X Mavericks. Apple is bringing its push notifications to the web, enabling support for websites to push updates to OS X Maverick users in Safari 7.0 even when their browser isn’t running.(http://appleinsider.com/articles/13/06/28/safari-70-to-bring-web-notifications-to-os-x-mavericks).
