WebRTC in Google Chrome Version 23 – Its Official!
Today was a big day for the web, it will go un-noticed by many but is not an exaggeration to say its the start of a paradigm shift in the way we communicate in real time on the web. Yes, I am once again talking about WebRTC, I posted about this previously as well in my WebRTC in a Nutshell post.
Today Google announced that WebRTC is officially in their Google Chrome version 23, you can see a nice write up of this on Forbes. Google is the driver behind WebRTC, they previously acquired Global IP Solutions and then open sourced the technology which is used to enable IP based voice and video.
Until today WebRTC required either running beta/alpha versions of browsers, or required special flags to be set in your Google Chrome installation to run. Now it is on by default.
Look for companies to make big announcements as this technology continues to move forward.
