Town Hall #86: Video Chat Module by Daniel Telfer (Digital Fuel)

Watch the recording of Town Hall #86, where long time friend and partner of the platformOS team, Daniel Telfer, demonstrates his Video Chat module. Deployed in 3 mins (or less!), you can have Zoom-like video chat functionality and screen sharing, on your own domain, powered by platformOS. 

The Video Chat module for platformOS provides a way to add video communications to your instances with minimal effort, offering a robust (and scalable) integration. And by keeping as much data as possible on the single infrastructure your client can more easily gain access to data insights and business intelligence. 

Topics covered include: 

  • Module setup 
  • Feature summary 
  • Chat in action 
  • What’s Next
