Which Web Browsers are supported by eyeson?

For your Desktop and Mobile Phone

Introduction

Getting started with eyeson is quite simple, all you need is a fairly modern browser (see complete list below). No additional software installation is required.

"The technology is available on all modern browsers as well as on native clients for all major platforms. The technologies behind WebRTC are implemented as an open web standard and available as regular JavaScript APIs in all major browsers."

eyeson native mobile Apps for iOS and Android

When you use eyeson more often we provide a native mobile app installed instead of using the mobile browser on your phone or tablet, in order to use your data (rooms, history, ...) in sync with your eyeson desktop login - especially when you act as a meeting host to invite participants directly from your phone and start meetings as a host.

The eyeson mobile app can be downloaded for free in the app stores and after installation please log in with your eyeson login credentials (you might need to skip mobile offers to get to the login screen).

eyeson mobile apps are compatible to the SaaS platform eyeson. When you use the eyeson API, please note that these applications can not be connected to your project. We recommend to use the mobile browsers for API projects.
