Talk - A free video call app for the web

vasanthv profile image Vasanth V ・1 min read

I created Hello ( in 2018 and many people quickly started using it, but I have to sell it in 2019 as it was in autopilot mode and I didn't do any enhancement to it for a long time. I sold it, so that some else can pick it up and update it, but that did not happen, it's still in the same state as 2018.

Recently, there have been few enhancements in WebRTC and related APIs, but I couldn't update Hello now. So I created this separate app with those enhancements and stabilizations. I also added a stable screen sharing feature for supported devices.

Introducing "Talk - A free video call app for the web".

Though it does not get its own fancy domain name, it's stable, works 100% and supported by all the modern browsers in all the platforms (both desktop & mobile).

Check it out and let me know what you think.

Dear Vasanth,

I'm Christine, and a huge fan of your work with Hello and Talk. I'm currently trying to implement them in my Bubble app. I have a question that I was hoping you could help me with. Both Hello and Talk only work for me when I use Safari, and not when I use Chrome. When I use chrome, (with enabled microphone and video access) I am only able to see myself and the partner appears as a black screen. How could I fix this issue such that it works in Chrome?

Thank you so much!

Hi @asktounderstand

I was just checking on my devices - it looks like it is working for me in Chrome.
I can guess that there might be an issue with either Chrome webcam/mic permissions or networking (e.g. your partner is behind NAT that prevents P2P and TURN server doesn't relay connection well).

I would be very interested in hearing about your business case of integrating application like Talk to your Bubble app – I am working on a project that provides similar functionality. Would be great to chat about it.
