A couple weeks ago, Amazon Web Services (AWS) experienced an outage in its US-EAST-1 region. As so many services rely on AWS, this outage had a broader impact, causing outages and various issues with Amazon’s own Ring services, online retailers, and even the New York City MTA. In addition, a couple major Communications Platform as a Service (CPaaS) providers also reported issues (Voximplant was not impacted), potentially impacting the communications of many of their customers. With this in mind, now is a good time to look at how CPaaS offers leverage public cloud infrastructure and review the factors involved in providing reliable, high quality communications services. In this post we will review the public cloud infrastructure used by several major CPaaS vendors and discuss the implications of their choices.
Huge news for all Voximplant developers – Chrome now supports screen sharing. And now it's an entirely native functionality.
If you're using Voximplant, you might know that we have been supported screen sharing since 2017 – here's the proof. If you open the link with a how-to article, you'll see the very first step that is called "CHROME EXTENSION". Previously, our developers had to use a special extension for Chrome, but now it's not required at all!
This means you could grab our video chat demo and test native screen sharing right now, using the stable 72 version of Chrome.
Have fun with simplified usage of screen sharing, be productive and stay tuned!
