We are all encountering WebRTC in our everyday business and private lives whenever we are – as the name states – communicating in real-time via the Internet. It is used for applications such as video conferencing, file transfer, chat, and desktop sharing. WebRTC is already integrated into most modern browsers and works with every device, so people can broadly use it without installing any new plugins or complicated set-ups.
