Microsoft and Google are preparing to video chat in the browser without plugins
Microsoft and Google are working together to ensure the possibility of carrying out video chat in the browser without using plugins for this purpose that promises to make work on the web faster and safer.
The project API ORTC (Object Real-Time Communications) experts from several companies, including Google, Microsoft and Hookflash, will try to create a new technology for real-time communications through a browser on tablets, smartphones and computers without the mediation of so-called plug-ins.
Currently video chat in the browser exists, but only through separate software, which sometimes slows down the browser and thus the web surfing.
The project is at a very early stage of development, but, undoubtedly, the partnership of Google, Microsoft, Hookflash, and other companies will lead to innovative result, which will affect the way of communication using computing devices. Video chat without plug-ins make web not only faster, but safer as we don’t have to use additional software to establish the connection between the two sides.
