At WebRTC Expo, Bistri was Excited to Announce and Demo a Killer Revamp of its Android App, as well as a Chrome App for Desktop and a version that will be compatible with Google Glass.
and… tada!!! Bistri Wins WoW Factor Award for its incredible demo of a video call from a simple QRcode.
Then Bistri’s CTO Emmanuel Venisse made a video call from Google Glass to a real Bistri user on the Web.
The Wow Factor Award was given to the demo that most had the judges surprised and shows innovation and thought. The award recognizes the industry contribution of the Bistri WebRTC products. As Bistri becomes a seasoned veteran and 3-time Gold Sponsor of WebRTC Conference and Expo today, it is also celebrating some exciting news just in time for the holidays.
Bistri is a WebRTC app that lets you make video calls in just one click. No installation, no plugins, no contacts to add prior to the call. Bistri works with Google Chrome and Firefox for PC, Mac, Chrome OS iOS and Android.
New Bistri App for Android — for Cool Kids Only
Bistri is thrilled to unveil the redesign of their new Android app—now with a sleeker interface and a timeline-style dashboard. It will be in private beta mode (http://beta.mobile.bistri.com) for one more month, but will be unleashed in January 2014.
Bistri App for Chrome = Piece of Cake
Once you download the Bistri app from the Google Chrome Web Store, you will be able to launch it from your desktop. It will run outside the browser and behave exactly as a desktop application —what more could you ask for?
Bistri and Google Glass — True Love?
Google Glass is the new frontier… and Bistri is trailblazing! Bistri is proud to be the first WebRTC video-calling application for Google Glass. Now there’s no need to log in or have a Google Plus account in order to enjoy one click, free video calling on your favorite pair of smart glasses.
Bistri’s telecommunication platform is based on WebRTC, an open-source voice and video technology for Web-based real-time communications and supported by industry leaders like Google, Mozilla and Opera. And unlike some other video services, Bistri calls are encrypted which makes it safe from snooping!
