Agora is a leading video, voice and live interactive streaming platform, helping developers deliver rich in-app experiences—including embedded voice and video chat, real-time recording, interactive live streaming, and real-time messaging.
A Vision of the Future
Traditionally, real-time video and voice happen in standalone, dedicated applications but people increasingly want to engage directly in applications they’re already using.
These real-time voice and video solutions were difficult and expensive to develop, requiring reliable multi-way transmission of large amounts of data across geographies and network operators, often resulting in significant data packet loss and slow response times.
In 2013, our founder had already imagined this future and set out to create the solution.
Building the Future Now
Today our Real-Time Engagement Platform provides developers with simple-to-use, customizable and widely compatible APIs to embed real-time video and voice into their applications without the need to build the infrastructure themselves. Real-time data transmission is handled by our Software-Defined Real-Time Network (SD-RTN™) with more than 200+ points of presence worldwide. Using sophisticated algorithms, SD-RTN™ continuously monitors and optimizes data transmission paths, minimizing latency and packet loss while enabling high-quality real-time engagement across millions of concurrent users.
Our goal is to empower every developer—whether working as a solo entrepreneur or part of a larger organization—to leverage Real-Time Engagement to create innovative products, elevate user experiences, differentiate themselves and build the applications of the future right now.
