Can I Build My Own Application with eyeson?

Introducing Our API

It is true, we offer a video conferencing API key as well. This means that you can build our application into yours to use eyeson whenever you want with one simple click. Moreover, you can keep your user data on your own platform. 

About the features: There are many to try out. For your convenience, we summarized them up for you as follows:


If you want to spontaneously invite a colleague or friend to your video conference just click on QuickJoin and a link as well as QR code is provided. Send it to the respective person and she/he can enter without any installation or sign-up. Easy, fast & effective.

Screen & File Sharing 

You can share your screen or files with your video conferencing participants in the video stream. Just click on the respective button and decide which content you want to show. The sharing can be ended by you or your video conferencing participants.


Of course, you can also record the whole video call. Though, eyeson asks everybody automatically for their permission before the recording can be started. Afterwards, you can download your recording and share it.

Video Injection 

Our latest feature: gif injection. This pretty funny feature can be used to show your delight, sadness, agreement, etc. It means that a gif from Giphy is shown for a few seconds instead of your own video. However, in case that it gets a little bit out of control, you can turn this feature off as well.

YouTube & Facebook Live Streaming 

Stream your group video calls live on YouTube or Facebook. For YouTube, you have to create an AdSense account beforehand. However, we’ve explained that in our help center as well.

Layout Settings 

Decide who should be seen. Totally, up to 9 video conferencing participants can be seen. However, a setting of 1, 2 or 4 can be chosen if you want. You can go as well for the automatic layout setting which positions your participants dependent on their arrival in the video call.


One-click. One snapshot of the group video call. Cool, right!?
